Cody Todd Montgomery

February 9, 1959 - May 29, 2016

Cody, 57, was born February 9, 1959 to loving parents, Donald C. Montgomery and Marcene Wayment Montgomery.  He is preceded in death by his dad by just three months.  He finished his valiant fight with cancer on May 29, 2016.  He has been very courageous, patient and optimistic these last three years.  He still had much he wanted to do and he was not ready to leave us yet.


Cody was a tough and quiet cowboy with a tender heart who loved the outdoors.  He lived in Liberty, Utah all of his life and loved it.  The mountains were his playground and he enjoyed spending time in them with his dad and his sons.  He loved to hunt, fish and ride his horses.


He especially loved fishing trips with his family to their cabin in Island Park, Idaho.  He enjoyed watching his kids and grandkids play sports.  He would be the most excited and energetic person on the side lines.  He couldn’t sit down!


Cody graduated from Weber High School in 1976.  He married his high school sweetheart, Karen Hillstead on December 28, 1977 in Liberty, Utah.  They were later sealed in the Ogden LDS Temple on June 5, 1981.  They were married for 38 years and enjoyed working in their garden together and spending time with their children and grandchildren.


He worked for Wadman Corporation for 35 years and the family would like to thank them for their outstanding love and support.  He was a superintendent there and he put his heart and soul into every project he ran.  Cody was a peacemaker and got along with all different types of people.  He was a hard worker and a good provider for his family.


He is survived by his wife, Karen Hillstead Montgomery; mother, Marcene Wayment Montgomery; five loving sisters and an Indian brother along with their spouses.  He is also survived by his children, Jessica Montgomery Mann (Marcus), Cody Montgomery Jr. (Ann), Chad Montgomery (Tianna), Jaine Montgomery Arias (Carlos) and Paige Montgomery Sherrod (Vallan).  He has two grandsons and eight granddaughters and one more on the way.


A viewing will be held Wednesday, June 1st from 6:00 to 8:00pm at the North Fork LDS Chapel located at 4279 No. 3300 E., Liberty, Utah.  The Funeral Service will be held on Thursday, June 2nd at 11:00am at the same location where friends may visit from 10:00 to 10:45am. prior to services
