Michael John Kodya was born March 27, 1959 and went to Heaven November 3, 2018 at the age of 59. He is survived by his best friend of 45 years/wife of 37 years, Jeanann; 3 beautiful daughters who were all “Daddy’s Girls”, Sarah, Melanie (son- in- law Bobby) and Elizabeth; 4 grandchildren who each gave him a sparkle in his eyes and joy to his heart, Noel, Tucker, Skyla and Lincoln; his Godly mother Mary and his “Mom” Betty, “Dad” Lige. He was also survived by his brothers Bobby, who gave him life for 4 ½ years and Mark; his sisters Marla, Tammy, Robin, Sherry, and Debbie.
Michael impacted everyone’s life that he met with his care and compassion, as the love of Christ shone through brightly. He was such an example of strength as he fought through the last 6 years, especially these last 9 months. He is my Hero, my Prince Charming, My Knight in Shining Armor, the Love of My Life. Michael took on God’s mission to share the love of Christ with everyone, to heart. I am sure that when he went to Heaven he heard, “Well done my good and faithful servant.” The void in our hearts can hopefully be filled with the memories of the, too short 59 years with him, as God brings them to remembrance. As a close family everything we see, everything we do, everything we think, all make us think of him. It won’t be hard to keep his memory strong.
A Celebration of Life service will be held Saturday November 10 at 10:30 AM.
