In Loving Memory of Cody Nelson

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Cody Nelson, who tragically lost his life in a work accident on Wednesday, September 13. Cody departed this world far too soon, leaving behind a profound void in the lives of his family and friends.

Cody's love for life was infectious, and he had an unwavering devotion to his family and friends. He approached life with an open heart, a generous spirit, and an unparalleled sense of humor that could brighten even the darkest of days. His kindness, humility, and selflessness touched everyone who had the privilege of knowing him, and he had an extraordinary ability to make others feel seen, special, and deeply loved.

Cody's remarkable ability to uplift others was a testament to his character. He spread kindness and positivity, a legacy we should all strive to uphold in his memory. His memory will live on in the countless lives he touched, the laughter he shared, and the love he freely gave.

Some of Cody's closest family and friends say it best:

"You were a shooting star. You burned strong and bright, and moved swiftly and easily in to each of our hearts. Those lucky enough to intertwine with your journey are forever warmer; for they smiled, laughed and loved to the fullest while surrounded in the moment of your light. You were something bigger than this world could hold on to for very long, and we will be dimmer without your shine. May your love and energy continue to carry the light for those closest to your heart, now and forever more."

"He always went out of his way to congratulate or express his happiness for you. We all should definitely do the same while moving through the world." 

"The outpouring I’ve witnessed over social media is tremendous, and of no surprise to me. His passing leaves a wake of sadness behind of which I’ve never seen, and is well deserved." 

"Cody, the epitome of kind. Growing up in Paddock, you were always the kid to make us all laugh. You didn't care about anyone's circumstances, you just showed love."

"Cody Nelson to know you was to love you. You made everyone want to be a better person through your love and light. Life will never be the same without you but we will make sure that you’re never forgotten."

Please share your cherished memories and stories of Cody below as we come together to celebrate his life, his love, and the enduring light he brought into our world. Contributions can be made to support Cody's family and help cover memorial costs during this difficult time.

Cody's love and spirit will forever remain in our hearts.
