On Friday, October 12, 2018 at 8:17pm, my dear brother Jody transitioned peacefully, surrounded by love. He was 25 years old and was hit by a car three weeks ago. Jody held on and fought this unfortunate and untimely tragedy to the very end and he truly is in a better place.
Our mother, Marcy and father, Conway along with my siblings Christel, Big Chris, Joel, Little Chris, Johnny, and Jenny are all very devastated. Jody would have wanted it to be a celebratory occasion and we are planning a service followed by a celebration of his life. We are grateful for the many texts, emails, and messages from people and appreciate the thoughts and prayers. His home going is still being arranged, and updates regarding location and times will be shared at a later date.
Jody was a kind, warm young man who suffered from mental illness that engulfed his 20’s. He did not have savings or life insurance and this awful catastrophe has created a vast financial burden that adds stress to heartbreak.
My family is hoping that you all can find it in your heart to help us lay Jody to rest with love and light. If you would like to contribute no matter how grand or humble, please do so and know that we greatly appreciate you. If you are not able to donate do not hesitate to write a message for the family to read.
Please keep this page on your radar regarding the home going celebration. Thank you.
