Mangum, Oklahoma 73554
Terry Lynn Cody, age 57, of Mangum, passed away Thursday afternoon, November 24, 2016, at his residence, in Mangum.
Terry was the son of Donna Kathryn (Schulte) and Wilson (Bill) E. Lonzo Cody, Jr. Terry was born in Wichita, Kansas on April 7, 1959. Terry started kindergarten in Hawaii and graduated high school in Alaska due to his father being in the air force. They moved around a lot because of the military. His fondest memories were of the years he spent in the Mangum school system.
Terry joined the army right out of high school and spent 7 1/2 years after getting in trouble and grounded for a year by his dad. Later he went to work as a correctional officer for the Oklahoma State Reformatory until he retired in 2006, after developing severe medical issues. Terry was a talented artist, musician and a highly skilled carpenter and craftsman. There really wasn't much he couldn't do once he set his mind to it. His mother, Donna, and Marlene kept him busy with their ideas and his skills. He always had a project or two or three going.
Terry was married to Marlene Flores for 30 years and had two children, Michael and Mindy. His greatest joy in his life were his grandchildren, Haley, Ryse, Melanie and Marissa. Everything he did in his later years was for his grandchildren. They were his whole world.
Terry was preceded in death by his brother, Lonzo, his mother, Donna, and his father, Bill. He survived by his children, Michael Cody of Cordell, Oklahoma and Mindy Neugebauer of Denver, Colorado; his grandchildren, Haley and Ryse Neugebauer of Frederick, OK and Melanie and Marissa Cody of Cordell, OK; his brothers Tim Cody and wife Michelle of Loveland, Colorado and Travis Cody of Mangum, OK; one sister, Anna Holland and Tony Scott of Gerty, OK; a special uncle, Johnny Schulte and wife Joyce of Gerty, OK along with several nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins & extended family and friends.
