Cody was born in Butte, MT, on July 26, 1987.  He graduated from Butte High School and continued to receive an Associate’s Degree in welding at Montana Tech, Class of 2007.  He worked for S.W.A.N.K. Enterprises, U.S. Foods, Sweet Pea Landscaping, private contractor and the Pekin.  Cody was always a very hard worker and could fix and build most things.  He took great pride in his carpentry skills and it was evident in his work.

Cody met Kristin Lannin during high school and they spent many happy years together.  They were married July 23, 2011, and even though this ended in divorce, he cared for and loved Kristen very much.

Cody loved children, which was evident in the special bond he shared with his nephew.  He would accompany the family on long medical trips and offered any help or comfort that was needed.  He always made sure that Hollis was safe and had his needs met.  Hollis was everything to Cody and he enjoyed being an uncle.  One of Cody’s greatest strengths was his huge heart.  He went above and beyond to help the people he cared for.

Cody was at peace in the outdoors.  He spent much of his time snowboarding, hiking, fishing, boating and hunting.  One of his favorite times was the boating trip on the Smith River with his family in 2014, many happy memories were made this trip.

Cody is survived by his mother, Narda Moody; sister, Amber (Nathan) Fortier; brother, Austin (Carly Johns) Moody; brother, Ray Moody; his favorite nephew, Hollis Fortier; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, great aunts and uncles; along with many other family and friends.

Cody is preceded in death by his sister, Kelly Arendt; aunt, Heather Gleason; grandpa and grandma, Howard and Sharon Holm; great-grandma, Dee Silk; and other family members.

Donations may be sent to the Cody Moody Memorial Fund, contact Austin Moody at for more information.  Donations may also be made to the Epilepsy Foundation, Attn: Donor Services, 8301 Professional Place East, Suite 200, Landover, MD 20785 for his nephew, Hollis, or to a charity of your choice.

A special thank you to Ray Moody, K.C. Hall, Bernie Boyle, Jerry and Danny Tam of Pekin and the Parr Family for their love and generosity that allows us to provide cremation and funeral services for Cody.
