OBITUARY

Clinton Cody Wyatt

October 29, 1975July 7, 2019

On Sunday, 7 July 2019, our Lord and Supreme Commander once again made his choice for the position of Sergeant of the Guard on the Streets of Heaven. Summoned was former Sergeant of Marines, Clinton Cody Wyatt, after a 3-year-long battle with cancer. Clinton Cody Wyatt was 43 years old and was at home in Crowley, Texas, when he peacefully reported to his final post. Cody was born in Fort Worth, Texas, and lived in Crowley, Texas, where he attended school. A family move took him to the east side of Fort Worth, where he graduated from Eastern Hills High School. After Eastern Hills, he attended Tarrant County Junior College while working, before enlisting in the U.S. Marine Corps. Cody was able to see the world, twice, while in the Marines and made many enduring friendships. As evidenced by his promotion to the rank of Sergeant in only three years, Cody was said to be a natural leader of combat-ready Marines. He exemplified the Marine Corps motto, “Semper Fidelis”, always faithful, throughout his entire life. Cody was preceded in death by his “Sissy”, Lynnette Mitchell. Cody will be lovingly remembered by the lights of his life, Caitlin Breanne Wyatt and Gage Cody Wyatt; mother, Linda Wyatt; father, Norman (and Terri) Wyatt; brother, Chad Wyatt; sister, Carleigh (and Dreu) Bynum; nephew, Cole Wyatt; uncles, James (and Barbara) Wyatt, Skip Bergen, and Gary Bergen; great aunt, Bess McLeod; grandmother, Lorene “Nana” Bergen; and innumerable treasured friends. Cody enjoyed sports and played football, baseball, and rodeo-ed while growing up. He loved taking both of his children, Caitlin and Gage, to ball games and fishing. His kids were the center of his universe, and his eyes would light up every time he saw or talked about them. He was soft-spoken, but when he spoke, his words meant something to everyone who heard them. Cody was genuine. He really listened when you talked, he really cared when he asked about you, and he really meant it when he offered his help. He had a huge heart and a calm demeanor that endeared him to everyone he met – especially the elderly, kids, and dogs that he loved so much. His immutable positivity and love for life left a lasting impact on everyone who came into contact with him. Cody – we know that we will see your smiling face again when our time comes to enter Paradise and walk the Streets of Gold. Until that day, we will cherish our memories and thank God for the blessing that you were in each of our lives. We love you; we miss you; and we promise to “have a good one” just like you always told us to.
