Cody's Story

BANGOR - Cody Daniel Leon Trotter, 23, Heaven gained another angel Jan. 4, 2016. Cody passed away unexpectedly. He was born Jan. 5, 1992 in Mt. Vernon, IL.

He graduated from Mt. Vernon Township High School in 2010. Shortly after, he moved to Maine in November 2010 to be with Crystal. On Dec. 11, 2010 he became the proud, loving father to Christopher Kelly. Cody loved Christopher like he was his own. They loved to play cars, wrestle on the bed, and play PS4 together.

He enjoyed basketball, video games, listening to music, hanging with friends, being with Crystal, and calling each other snuggle buns and boo bear.

On Sept. 24, 2015 Cody asked Crystal to marry him, and of course she said yes. Since the engagement, they started talking about a date, but couldn't agree on one.

Cody worked at Denny's and really enjoyed it. He became friends with everyone quickly. It was like having a work family. He could turn to them for advice, to talk to, or to just have a laugh.

Cody was predeceased by his mother, Brenda Trotter of IL. He leaves behind his friends and family in Maine, and his aunt, siblings, and extended family in IL.

A memorial will be held from 4 p.m.-8 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 14 at 15 Colonial Circle in Brewer in the community room. We ask if you are attending that you bring a dish for after the service.
