Even as a young child, it was quite evident that Cody was a “social butterfly”. He never met a stranger and in fact could strike up a conversation with anyone. Cody would attend Monroe High School.
Cody enjoyed nothing more than a peaceful day casting a line. He spent countless hours along the shores of Lake Erie, and whenever he could visit his father in West Virginia, they were sure to spend some time fishing together. Cody was extremely handy and could seemingly fix just about anything. He often brought home broken bicycles and “chopper” minibikes to repair and did happily performed odd jobs for his grandparents. As an animal lover, he could never pass up an opportunity to play with a dog or cat. Cody also enjoyed playing video games and poker with his friends. He also loved watching basketball and playing basketball with his neighborhood friends.
