A wink and a smile: Cody Fortune lit up every room he stepped into since his birth in Fort Dodge, Iowa, on Aug. 10, 1991, to Steph (Clay) and Tracy Fortune. The youngest of three siblings and a member of Trinity Lutheran Church, Cody graduated from Algona High School in 2010. Following in his father’s footsteps, Cody received his degree in Power Line Technology from Northwestern Iowa Community College in Sheldon and was working as a lineman for Alliant Energy. He loved being a lineman and all those who he worked with.
He was compassionate, caring, fun-loving, honest and hardworking. He had a way of touching the lives of all whom he met, lifting them up when they were down and loved his friends and family with his whole heart. Cody had a love for golf and found joy in a motorcycle ride, a weekend away to Apple River with his friends, hunting, playing cards, the yearly family reunions at the Big 12 Tournament in Kansas City, and he adored and loved his four nieces. He was always surrounded by seemingly endless love.
Cody will be lovingly remembered by his parents, Tracy and Steph of Algona, who were so very proud of him; his sister and brother-in-law, Jaron and Courtney Benz with their four daughters: Addily, Aria, Arilyn and Amelia of Hartley; his brother Caleb Fortune and his love Natalie Enloe of Iowa City; his grandparents, Paul and Cynthia Clay of Humboldt, Marvin Fortune of Otho and Ardith (Jack) Dorman of Harcourt; and his many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. May his smile, the sparkle in his eyes and his infectious laugh live on in all of us.
