He was an avid Yankee fan. His extensive collection of vinyl albums included many from his favorite band, The Beatles. Even while away for many years, he remained a big fan of the ECS Panthers, and attended many school events when visiting home.

Bode was blessed to have his brother Larry at his side during his illness. The entire family is thankful for his dedication to his brother.

Bode’s family would like to thank the second-floor Bassett nurses for excellent care, and Hospice for thoughtful guidance. In addition Pastors Jay Henderson and Andy Johnson were a blessing to the family during this difficult time. They would also like to recognize the Seby Jones Cancer Center staff and Paul Young in Boone, N.C.
