Wayne J. Cody Notice
Cody, Wayne J. Age 72, of Oconomowoc, found Eternal Peace Friday, June 28, 2013, at his home with his loving family at his side. He was born to the late John and Evelyn Cody on May 5, 1941 in Green Bay. He married Mary Vanderheyden on July 17, 1976 in Phoenix, AZ. Wayne is survived by his wife Mary; children, Toni Strehlow of Green Bay, Chris Cody of Appleton, Keith Cody (Lisa) of Vista, CA, and Leah Nolan (Blake) of San Diego, CA; grandchildren, Sara Strehlow, Abigail and Jonathan Cody, Kyle and Tyler Cody. In addition to his parents, Wayne was preceded in death by his brothers Jim and Johnny, and son-in-law Rob Strehlow. Wayne worked for years in the food industry, both as a grocery store manager and as a food broker, and loved the sales aspect of this business and the wonderful trips he and his family enjoyed as a reward of his accomplishments. After his retirement, he enjoyed the outdoors while working as a park ranger at Naga-Waukee Park in Hartland. He loved riding his Harley Heritage Softail, camping, fishing, gardening, reading, spending time with friends and family, traveling, and cooking. We most remember Wayne's never-ending kindness and his ability to always make us laugh. Friends may visit Monday July 1 from 4 7 PM at Schmidt and Bartelt Funeral Home, 121 S. Cross Street, downtown Oconomowoc. Additional viewing will be held at St. Matthew Church, 130 St. Matthew Street in Green Bay on Tuesday, July 2 from 11AM 1PM followed by Mass, officiated by Bishop Robert Morneau.
