April 12, 2000 – January 24, 2021
It is with unimaginable sadness that we say goodbye to our kind, loving, Cody. He leaves behind to mourn his loss, Mom: Lorri (Stroud), Sisters: Tasha (Ben), Diana (Jared & Kasen), Elisa (Steven). His nephews: Brayden (5), Beckett (3), Hudson (2) and Bradley (1), Uncle Dave, Nicole, Brett & family, Auntie Sherry & Kayla many relatives across BC and Canada on his Mom's side, as well as Auntie Karin and the Iversen/Smith families, our extended family, who have been there for all of us throughout our lives.
He is also survived by his father and many relatives on the Weatherston side.
Dakota (Cody) Robert Vernon Weatherston was born in Langley and raised in Langley & Aldergrove He graduated from DW Poppy in 2018, then attended the Auto Technician program through KPU at Aldergrove Secondary the following year. His goal was to learn all about fixing his own cars (as well as his mom and sisters) while he contemplated his future. Eventually it was Cody's love of repairing and building computers, as well as being an avid gamer, that made the decision to obtain a degree in Computer Sciences at UFV. His journey began in the January 2020 Winter session and was looking forward to a career in the field.
Cody was such an easy going and helpful guy, even at a young age. He was always the first to jump in and help but never wanted the credit. He was a hard worker and started working at the age of 14 as the Office Janitor at Chris’s Signs then added a second job last year when he joined the sales team at Willowbrook Sportchek where he was a well-respected member of their team.
He was an active guy and loved to play basketball, snowboard, and have fun on the water behind a boat. His favorite family trip was to Deception Pass in Washington to camp with his Mom and Nic and whoever else could join that year. He also loved our annual campout at Haynes Point in Osoyoos, visiting our family friend's cabin in Tulameen and lots of backyard campfires, sno-cones, taco, and poker nights with his friends.
This past summer, he eagerly jumped at the chance of a cross Canada road trip with his Mom to drive his cousin’s motorhome back to him in Ontario. When the family did the trip back in 2005, he was so young that he was excited to see everything again - especially the Dinosaur Museum in Drumheller as an adult. Lorri is very grateful she had that one-on-one time with her son this summer and to have all those special memories. Cody was always so understanding, and appreciative of his Mom and his love for her was unconditional. He truly was the best son and brother a family could ever ask for and he will be missed everyday for the rest of their lives.
