Cody was a 2013 graduate of PHHS and planned to attend Ivy Tech Community College this fall. His goal was to be a high school history teacher.
Cody attended Fall Creek Christian Church, where he played guitar and sang in the worship band. He loved music and wrote his own songs. Cody and friends were starting their own band, and he was a great fan of the group Avenged Seven Fold. Cody was employed by Pilot, on Indiana 13 in Pendleton, where he really enjoyed meeting new people.
