Officer Cody Holte Memorial

On May 27 our state lost one of its finest, when Officer Cody Holte of the Grand Forks police department was killed in the line of duty. Officer Holte was also a First Lieutenant in the North Dakota Army National Guard. Cody dedicated his life to serving his community, state, and nation, always putting the needs of his Soldiers and the citizens he served above his own.

He served as the commander of Det 2, 815th Engineer Company and was a true Soldier. Cody was a selfless leader who spent countless hours preparing his unit for upcoming missions. He led from the front and always put his Soldiers’ needs before his own. Lt. Holte performed every duty to the best of his ability and mentored and motivated his Soldiers to the highest level of readiness. 

1st Lt. Cody Holte, 29, assigned to the Lisbon-based 815th Engineer Company was killed in the line of duty in Grand Forks N.D. Holte enlisted in the Army Reserve in 2010, he later commissioned as a 2nd Lt. in the N.D. Army National Guard in 2015, where he served until the time of his death.

Cody lived in Grand Forks, ND with his wife and 10 month old baby boy who were his pride and joy. 

Our hometown hero will be remembered for his grin, his kind loving heart and his love for his country and family. Cody will forever be our hero. 

Donated funds will be given to his wife and son as they begin to navigate this tragic loss. 

With love,
Friends of the Holte family
