Jody was passionate about many things. His love for the outdoors was surpassed only by his love for watching his boys play any sport for his beloved Tartars. Hunting and riding 4-wheelers with his Daddy and his boys was his favorite pass time. He leaves behind a loving family that will miss him every single day, finding peace in knowing that he waits for us in paradise with his Heavenly Father.
