Condolences for the family of “Ernest Gregory Cody”

Keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. Greg was the sweetest and happiest person one could meet. May God grant you peace and comfort during the days ahead. Love you!

Uncle Greg was the “fun” uncle. As kids, he took us on his pontoon boat, boogie boarding, skiing, fishing, etc. Made us laugh with funny stories. Always had a big smile. He even braided my hair. (I’ll always think of him when I braid my daughters hair.) As an adult, he helped me with “adulting” things like water pump issues and he added a extra garden well at my house. He will surely be missed but his imprint on my life will always remain.

Condolence from Nikki Cody on July 1st, 2020 7:27 pm

I will always miss you daddy ❤️

Liz and family, so sad for Greg’s passing. I have been vigilant about watching your posts over the last few years. Have seen the love and devotion of you as a couple. Greg must have been such a strong person with a love of life. And you the strong love for him. I’d love to go to the memorial service but still have to be cautious with our health and the hope’s I can see my Mom again some day soon. Hugs and love.

Condolence from Barbara Agard on July 5th, 2020 4:15 pm


I have been thinking of you all week and just trying to think of the right words to say. I can’t express how sorry I am for your loss. Greg sounded like an amazing man and I know how happy he made you. I don’t think I ever saw a picture of you two that you both weren’t smiling in. Seeing that I knew he was the love of your life. I pray that you get through this time and know he is at peace. I love you sweetie and wish I didn’t live so far away that I could wrap my arms around you and hug you. You are in my thoughts and prayers,

Condolence from Nicole CODY on July 11th, 2020 12:08 pm

Thank you Micheal for speaking beautiful words at the service and keeping the attention to my dad. You make us want to always follow God. The other one just preached hatred, sins and disrespected “the girls.” He was selfish and made the last part of something beautiful into something ugly. He makes me want to slit the neck of God, and him. So thank you, for becoming something better than that.

Condolence from Jim, Lydia, and Lee Malco on July 18th, 2020 2:10 pm

Greg was a great guy. He always had a smile even when he was not feeling well. We think of him every time we have water for our homes or for irrigation of the strawberries, blueberries, tomatoes and.the garden. Know you have lots of good memories.
We are sorry for your loss.
