Cody Lewis Stallard
Wakefield – Cody Lewis Stallard, 16, died Saturday Jan. 31, 2009 in Southampton County. He was the son of Kenneth L. & Tracey Harrell Stallard and a junior at Southampton High School. He is also survived by his sister, Kelly Anne Stallard; grandparents, Charles & Judy Stallard of Ivor, Melvin & Kathy Harrell of Jarrett and Lorene W.

Todd Harrell and his wife Amy of Prince George; cousins, Brandon & Carson Harrell; and his girlfriend, Morgan Hulker of Courtland. Cody was pre-deceased by his grandmother Clara Raiford Baines and grandfather Clyde “Pete” Cook.
Cody was a well-liked, hard-working and active young man. A good-mannered young man, he was known as the “handyman” of the Berlin community because of his willingness to say “yes” when called by his neighbors to help out with yard work and odd jobs. He was an avid outdoorsman and hunter and he was always finding an excuse to be driving his black Chevy truck. He spent his weekend’s coon hunting and also loved to deer hunt with the Bent Barrel Hunt Club. He was employed as a groundskeeper at the Southeastern regional 4-H Center, Wakefield. He loved to ride his motorcycle, cut grass and he was good with his hands working on a truck or lawn mower equipment. He was a member of the Millfield Baptist Church, Wakefield and was an active member of the Millfield Youth Group. He ran the sound equipment of the church during services.
Cody was loved and admired by his parents and family. He was a good boy and never met a stranger or had an enemy. His sudden loss has shocked and saddened his family and his community. Cody’s love of life and free spirit will be sorely missed.
Funeral arrangements are pending at this time. Memorial donations may be made in Cody’s memory to Millfield Baptist Church Youth Group, 31389 Millfield road, Wakefield VA 23888. ,Arrangements are being handled by the Purviance Chapel, J. T. Morriss & Son, Wakefield. Condolences may be posted at
