Cody’s family is profoundly saddened to announce his passing on November 30th, 2022. His strength and determination during his battle with cancer is an example in courage to all of us.

He and his wife, Nicole, had a love for each other that people rightly envied. His
parents, Randy and Barb, certainly produced one of the good ones. His brothers Travis (Liz) and Devin (Regan) were not only his life-long companions, but his best friends, and willing accomplices in whatever the pursuit. His in-laws, Marlene and Rick, Ryan (Amanda) knew they lucked-out when he came into their lives. As an uncle to Elliott, Nate, and Alistair, Cody was tops in the peek-a-boo department.

There are countless other people we could name here who loved Cody, and who he loved, but they’ve given us a word limit, so we’ll just go with, there will never be enough space to list how many people will miss him.

Meeting Cody was to encounter someone so kind, generous, and smart, you’d never
forget him. What you would find out if you stuck around was how talented he was at
everything he tried, how committed he was to his family and friends, how stubborn he was, and what a mischievous jerk he could be (but only to the ones he loved most).

Aiming high was never high enough for Cooder and it didn’t matter if the challenge was in sport, games, education, or in his career at Epcor. It’s hard to tell
which was his favourite pastime – it’s a toss-up between cooking, fishing, patiently teaching younger generations, or doing his brothers’ taxes.

We loved his laugh, and he always returned the favour making us laugh. If we said we’re going to miss him, that would be the understatement of the century.

An unending thank you to Dr. McKillop and the team at the Cross Cancer Institute

We’ll keep you posted about the time and date for the memorial.

  1. Cody was a very special person. I met Cody when he was 5 and even then he had a small on his face. It was fun watching him grow up and all his pursuits. I remember doing the photography for his wedding and how happy they were. We lost a very special man

  3. No words can properly express our condolences to everyone who’s life was touched by Cody. Sending everyone love and light

  11. My heart goes out to you and your family, Barb and Randy. I have some wonderful memories of Cody. Thinking of you at this sad, sad time.


  12. So, so sorry for your incredible loss, Randy & Barb and family. There are no words to express the depth and pain of loss of a beloved child/sibling/nephew/grandson/friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  13. My deepest possible condolences during this imaginably difficult time to you Nicole, Barb, Randy, Devon, Travis and the rest of the family. Cody was the absolute best one could ask for in a friend, colleague, beer pong teammate, concert buddy (unashamed fellow Nickelback fan), hockey fan, donair chef, host, mastermind, karaoke performer (i cannot unhear his serenade of ‘Picture’ to me), employee and most of all human. I will always sing our duet ‘simple man’ with him. I am enriched to have had the privilege to be his friend and am blessed with so many memories I can cherish.

  14. Barb and Randy
    Our our thoughts are with you at this time of loss.

  15. So very sorry Barb, Randy & family for your loss! May wonderful times shared with Cody bring you comfort during this difficult time. We hold you all gently in our hearts.

  16. Deepest heartfelt condolences on Cody’s passing. Truly a remarkable impact on others. Though we only met once, as groomsmen at Devin & Regan’s wedding, his earnest joy and mischievous smile were very quickly memorable. Our thoughts, prayers, and love to all of Cody’s loved ones as you all navigate through the next steps. May his memory be for a blessing.

  17. Nicole Randy and Barb,
    There are no words to express the sadness to hear of your loss today.
    We are sending you our condolences and prayers today. May you find strength in the wonderful memories of Cody.

Love and best wishes to all, love grandma and grandpa Bodnar

  23. Nicole: I am grateful to have met you and to have seen Cody on Halloween for our team pumpkin carving event. Your love and connection shined through, and I will hold onto the memory of seeing him happy and positive. He was a great guy with a kind soul, he is deeply missed in the office. My condolences go out to the entire family and thinking of everyone at this difficult time. We will have to meet on the river with our camping chairs and enjoy a nice summer day for Cody.

  26. Nicole, Barb, Randy, Travis, Elizabeth, Devin and Regan
    Don and I are so sorry for your loss of Cody. I remember how much fun he was at Travis’ and Elizabeth’s wedding and how supportive he was at the events leading up to that special day. From the family album pictures, we could see he was a wonderful uncle to Alistair, and I am hoping his nephew gave him and Nicole some joy while he was struggling with his illness. It is tragic to lose anyone, but losing a young vibrant man like Cody is especially hard. Our thoughts are with you all.

  27. My deepest condolences to all of Cody’s family and friends. A big hug to Nicole. Sending prayers for strength and healing. I am so sorry for your loss.

  28. So so very sorry to hear of the passing of Cody. I only had the pleasure of meeting Cody briefly at AMA . I have had the pleasure of working with Nicole her whole AMA career . My deepest sympathies are with the families and friends. It is a unimaginable loss. Cherish all your memories.

  29. Very sorry for your loss Nicole. My thoughts are with you and your families. May he forever rest in peace.

  30. My heart goes out to you both, Randy and Barb and to all your family. Cody was a special lad, I remember him well from grade school.

  31. So sorry to hear about your dear Cody. My heart goes out to you Barb and Randy and of course to the rest of the family. I know he will be sorely missed. God bless you.

    • Nicole I am also sending you our love and prayers. Cody was a beautiful soul and we are so very sorry for the loss of the love of your life ❤️

  37. We are saddened and devastated by Cody’s passing. To have known Cody was an absolute privilege. He was funny, smart, competitive, always thought of others and I don’t know how he did it but he never lost any game or challenge (sometimes frustrating too perhaps lol)!!! What a guy! I was honoured to work with Cody in finance and regulatory at EPCOR, and he definitely made wfh covid 2+ years more bearable with his smiley face and growing locks on camera!! When I think of Nicole and Cody I chuckle about their visits to the AB landmarks (and maybe the “cheesit” structure?). Sending love to all who loved and lost an amazing gentleman to a cruel disease. You are in my thoughts today, tomorrow and always.

  38. Deepest condolences for your loss. I worked with Cody for a short time and found him to be an amazing soul, so full of life and kindness. I was very saddened today to hear of his passing. He was a true gem and will be greatly missed.

  39. My deepest condolences Nicole
    I am so sorry for your loss
    Take strength in knowing that his suffering is over
    You are in my thoughts and prayers

  40. Our deepest condolences on the passing of Cody. Sending love and light to all. There are no other words…
    Carmen and Ron Thieson
