the American Legion Baseball team. He attended Bismarck State College and graduated with a degree in Welding. He worked at Do All Metal Fabricating for a few months before being em-ployed at Ham’s Well Service, first as a welder and most recently as a roustabout, a job he loved.

Cody loved the outdoors and enjoyed hunting and fishing with his Dad, brother, and many friends. He always said he would be content living in a cabin in the woods. A prized possession was his

Harley Davidson motorcycle. He was a member of the Gallows Motorcycle Club in Towner, ND and made many new friends. He loved his family, especially gatherings with extended family and

“remembering when” times. Cody had a prize winning personality with a smile to match.
