SGT. Cody L. Bryan.



Bryan, Cody L. SGT, of Kettering, OH, 22 years old, U.S. Army stationed at Fort Carson, CO passed away unexpectedly Friday, October 14th, 2011 from complications after surgery for an injury he sustained while in Iraq on his 2nd tour. He was a member of the 3rd Battalion, 29th Field Artillery Regiment, Gulf Company. He was a combat veteran with two tours in Iraq. He was a proud member of the "Pacesetters" whose motto is "Duty First, Iron Strong" which described Cody perfectly. Cody was the Companies "Go-To" man who never failed to complete his missions. He was a consummate warrior and a protector of the weak. Cody was born November 13, 1988 in Dayton, Ohio and graduated in 2007 from Kettering Fairmont High School. Cody is survived by his wife Megan (Moore) and two wonderful children; his daughter Kaydence, and his son Ian, with a baby boy Tanner due in two months. Cody grew up in Kettering with parents Rick and Raelynn and sisters Brittany and Rachel. His mother Debi (Smith) and sister Devin live in Nebraska. Cody's gift of sharing laughter with those around him will be missed by those who knew and loved him each and every day. His strength and courage is something everyone should strive for. He was looking forward to an honorable discharge from the Army so he could study counseling and continue to help others. He was the best son a Mom and Dad could have, a helping brother, a strong man, a giving husband, a loving father, and the greatest friend a person could have. Friends may call from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, October 24, 2011 at the TOBIAS FUNERAL HOME – FAR HILLS CHAPEL, 5471 Far Hills Ave. Dayton, Ohio 45429, with the funeral service and military honors at 7:00 p.m. Memorial contributions may be made to Megan for their children.
