The Guest Book is expired.
Cody was born in Billings on April 21, 1982, but really grew up in Bozeman. As a young boy, he was very funny and he was "all boy." He was a very talented Little League catcher and football player, and he excelled in wrestling, snowboarding, fly fishing and Moi Fa kickboxing.
If you were fortunate to have become a friend of Cody's, you knew that his friendship was deep, long-lasting and very sincere. If you were privileged to have been his father, mother or sister, you were honored by the role and your life was truly blessed because of it.
Cody graduated from Bridger Alternative High School in 2000 and the R.S.I. H-VAC Academy in Phoenix with top honors. He was in the midst of building a successful commercial refrigeration career in the Mesa/Phoenix area. During Cody's downtime, he loved to explore the southwest desert with his friends on motorcycles or jam on his guitar with his buddies.
Proud to have had this short time with Cody does not come close to describe how we feel about our son, brother, cousin, nephew and friend. We will miss you so much, and even though we always thought we would see you again, we will keep your spirit with us forever. Now you can rest with joy.
Survivors include his parents, Randy Coleman and Dana Coleman of Columbus, Mont.; his sister, Amber Nelson and her husband, Shawn Nelson of Bozeman; and his niece, Sienna Nelson of Bozeman; along with numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and his extraordinary friends.
Funeral services will be at 2 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 29, at Dokken-Nelson Sunset Chapel. Interment will follow in Sunset Hills Cemetery.
