     Cody Wayne Scheetz, age 17, of rural Lamar, passed away Saturday, June 7, 2014 from injuries sustained in a vehicle-pedestrian accident.

     Cody was born February 25, 1997, to Dale W. and Loretta (Curtis) Scheetz.  He was a student at Lamar High School and worked for Bill Griffitt Farms.  An avid outdoorsman with a zest for life, Cody was happy target practicing with clay pigeons or working in the hay fields.    He enjoyed his many dogs, especially his favorite pit bull, Angel.  Cody was born with a no-fear passion for anything with a motor that he could drive or ride, and many great family memories were made on jet-skis on Stockton Lake.

     Survivors include his parents, Dale & Loretta Scheetz, of the home; grandparents, Darrell & Christina Scheetz, Follansbee, West Virginia; four sisters, Megan L. Scheetz & Calvin Lepo, Jarica R. Willet & Josh Smith, Erica L. Scheetz, Brianna L. Scheetz & Josh Kavanagh all of Lamar; three nephews, Brennon Scheetz, Rally Kavanagh, and Treyton Tripplet; and a large extended family.

     Cody was preceded in death by grandparents, Karen Scheetz, Warren Curtis, Norma June Curtis, Bryon “Tiny” White, and Frankie Wilkenson; and an uncle, Eric Scheetz.

     A memorial service celebrating Cody’s life will be held at 2:00 p.m. Wednesday, June 11th at Daniel Funeral Home where the family will receive friends from 6:00 until 7:00 p.m. Tuesday.

     Memorial contributions are suggested to Children’s Miracle Network in care of the funeral home.
