We apologize if we have missed anyone.
Cody was predeceased by his sons Emmett and Cody Jr.; his parents, Violet and Percy; his brother Gerald; and sisters, Lorna and Francis.
Cody was a gifted rodeo man. It was his #1 passion. He loved hockey and powwow. He traveled everywhere and had friends everywhere. He was a humble man that enjoyed making people laugh; many carry nicknames he gave them. He was a twenty-one-year foster parent and raised several community children and was honoured to be part of their journey in life. We are grateful for the care of the doctors and nurses of unit 81 at the Foothill’s Hospital.
Wake Services will be held at Cody’s residence in Rabbit Lake on Tuesday, April 18, 2017.
