Cody was born Sept. 22, 1997, in Grand Island to Doug and Crystal (Brown) Schott. He grew up in St. Libory, attended St. Libory Elementary and Middle School and went on to attend Northwest High School, graduating in 2016.
Cody was loved by many. He had a way of making friends anywhere he went and lighting up a room with his presence. He truly cared about other people and believed the best in everyone. He wanted to get to know you and find a way to help you. He was always so positive and looking for opportunities to improve both his life and the lives of those around him. He gave the best hugs and daps.
He loved to spend time with friends listening to his idols, Lil Peep and Juice WRLD. He loved playing Xbox with the boys. Most important to him was his family, and although they could often drive him crazy, he loved spending time with them.
Left to cherish his memory are his parents, Doug and Crystal Schott; his sister, Elizabeth Schott; his grandma; cousin and best friend, Brock Jennelle; cousin, more like sister, Brittany Jennelle; and little cousin, Bentley Jennelle; aunt, Brenda and uncle Jeff Jennelle; cousin, Hali (Parker) Mastny; aunt, Coral (Rob) Grothe; uncle, Herb Brown III; aunt, Amber Luther; aunt, Misty Brown; multiple cousins and second cousins and great-aunts and uncles; a multitude of friends; and stepgrandfather, Vonl.
There to greet him on the other side are his grandma, Nancy; grandpa, Herb; four-legged best friend, Champ; ""Uncle"" Kirk Nelson, and many great-grandparents.
