I spent a many of nights with this man, from hunting to fishing and chasing women! We always had a blast no matter were we went together and he always knew how to make another person smile! He was more than my best friend at the time, he was my brother! I loved him like one and always will. He was such a kind young man and was always the type person who would give you the shirt off his own back in the freezing cold if you told him you needed it, there isn’t many young men today that had the respect this young man had the entire time I spent with him and he taught me so many things in life! Mostly to get out and enjoy nature and the peace it has to offer all of us! I will never forget the hundreds of memories we made together and I know your in a better place now. Rest In Peace brother, I love you and will miss you so much. Cody Wilmoth.
