He will be lovingly remembered by his common law partner Rosetta Skead. He was predeceased by his mother Cheryl; and his grandparents Evelyn Redsky and Cecil Redsky, Beverly Shebagegit and Joseph Shebagegit Sr.

After graduating from high school, Cody went on to study at Nipissing University. Cody held a position at Baibombeh Anishinaabe School for years. He had an extraordinary caring heart and would make every conceivable effort to make sure his students succeeded. Cody poured his heart and soul into working with students, parents and staff.
His smile and quick witted personality never went unnoticed. He liked to tease and laugh as he talked and socialized with everyone he encountered. Some of his favourite things to do were watching his Winnipeg Jets as well as fishing and hunting with family and friends.
