Cody was a genuine human being to walk this earth. If you knew Cody you knew that his smile was contagious and would light up any room. You knew there wasn't a moment that passed that he didn't try to make people laugh. He was family oriented and his pride and joy were his children. Cody had a special personality to work with the elderly and provide them with the absolute best of care. He was born with the gift of being a caregiver. He was always looking out for people in need, especially among his family. He loved his wife, Gail and his children with all of his heart and would move mountains to make sure they were provided for. Cody carried such a special bond with his sisters that nothing could ever come between them.
