Cody was the most sensitive asshole on the planet. His ability to make you question your intelligence was that of wizardry. He had a 6th sense. That sense was when there was only one more beer or the last bag of chips. He always got them; and figured a way to trick you into bringing it to him!
Not only was he a sensitive caring man, he was a point of light. When he walked in the room you knew he was there because he would make it known. He graduated from Hughes Springs High School in 2001 and would later work his way up in the world. He knew how to laugh, he always joked but never out of malice. He could tease your ass to end of the earth though. There have been many tears shed over the last few days and rightfully so. We lost a beautiful soul in Cody. We know he would have also wanted a bunch of stories and a bunch of laughs too. Today we honor that light that will be kept in everyone's hearts forever.
He is survived by his family and a gigantic group of friends who he touched in one way or another in his years with us. Thank you again for being here, for loving him and for being his friend. He certainly considered you his.
Don't forget that he'd be rolling his eyes at everyone crying so dry it up and have a cheers for him!
