Obituary of Cody James Petosky

Please share a memory of Cody to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Cody James Petosky was born July 5, 1988, in Ypsilanti, Michigan.  He was one son born from the union of the late James Charles Petosky and Pamela Sue (Kopka) Petosky of Dundee, Michigan. Cody graduated from Milan High School with the class of 2006, where he was a member of the varsity basketball and football teams.

In high school, Cody also had a fervor for sports, particularly basketball. However, the untimely loss of his father caused a profound impact on his life, leading him to withdraw from the game he once adored. Grief weighed heavily on his heart, making it difficult for him to find solace. But with the unwavering support of his family and close friends, Cody eventually found renewed strength to embark on a better journey, slowly mending the broken pieces of his heart.

Throughout his life, Cody was recognized for his remarkable personality and for having a smile that could instantly light up any room. He possessed a truly caring and empathetic nature, always putting others before himself. His genuine warmth and compassion touched the lives of so many, leaving an indelible mark on all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

As a skilled home renovator and construction subcontractor Cody was known as possessing exceptional crafts workmanship with tile. With his unmistakable talent and dedication to perfection, he built a reputation as a true master of his craft. Countless homes and projects bear the mark of his expertise, serving as a lasting testament to his unwavering commitment to excellence.

Cody was a beloved member of a friend group that called him "FACE."  They were a solid foundation of support, brotherhood and togetherness.  Although he never married or had children, he loved spending time with friends and family to just be together or to ride snowmobiles.  He was an extremely generous person who loved to travel. 

Though Cody has left us too soon, his memory will forever be cherished by those who knew and loved him. As we celebrate his life, let us remember the lessons he taught us – to embrace kindness, to never give up, and to appreciate the importance of family and friendship.

To cherish his memory, Cody leaves his mother: Pam of Dundee, Michigan; and one brother: Shawn Spears of Vero Beach, Florida.
