Cody could light up any room with his smile. He was the cutest little boy and was becoming such a handsome young man. He kept a grin on his face and knew exactly how to make you laugh. You knew Cody was there because all you could hear was “bruh.” Cody was passionate and hard-working. He loved his family deeply, especially his sisters. Cody loved to fish and be at the beach. You could usually find Cody with his headphones on, sitting in his chair, and playing his Xbox.
Cody was a member of the youth at Walnut Grove Baptist Church. He was recently baptized and passionate about seeing God save this generation. Cody also recently graduated from Bessemer City High School.
