little league football teams such as the Rattlers , Mifflin sharks and raiders all the way up to his

a little soccer here and there from his middle school days. Cody had a passion for expensive ,
fancy cars and both he and his father shared similar hobbies such as hip-hop, rap music, and
watching the Dallas cowboys . Cody found an interest in painting, anything that involved getting
his hands dirty. Cody joined his good childhood friend, Robert Cocharn in a very successful
land-scaping and exterior services business called “BIG SMILES”. Cody wanted to start an
American exotic pitbull breed, named after two good friends, Vic and Jay Kennels. Cody had the
sweetest soul, he was a good friend to many, many people he would always check up on people
and supported everyone . He had a big heart for the little kids he came across, Cody made
himself welcomed in many people’s homes, I’m sure of it. He would fill rooms with many smiles
and laughter, he always was “the life of the party”. We now have those memories to share and
to remember who he was and how he played very important roles in many of our lives today .
