Sunday June 11 – 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Crystola Road House, 20918 E US Highway 24, Woodland Park, Colorado.

Kody was born in Denver and grew up in the farmlands of Fort Lupton and Brighton, Colorado. After high school he was married and had two sons, Greg and Bradd.

Kody worked as a pressman in the Denver area until 1998 when he moved to Phoenix, AZ, where he met his current wife, Robin. In 2000 Kody, Robin, and son Joe moved to Colorado Springs, where Kody and Robin were married on June 15, 2001. In 2004, they went up the mountain to Woodland Park, where they lived until June of 2015. They then returned to Arizona and settled down in Florence.

Kody’s true passion was racing. After chasing his dream for a few years as a Sprint Car driver, he found himself on the other side of the wall and was hooked on NACSAR. Some people go to church on Sunday, Kody went to the races. Over the past eight years Kody and Robin have been very involved grandparents and he became known as Papa.

Kody is survived by his parents Ken and Ollie Kothe, 3 sisters: Debbie, Kim, and Kendra. 5 children/step children,, Greg Kothe, Bradd Kothe, Joe Yaw, Justin Cox, Morgan Lewis.

He was not a kid person. He really didn’t want to hang with kids so he ended up with 11 Grandchildren and 5 great Grandchildren. He is also survived by several nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his brother Kelly.

All of my children, grandchildren, and their families have been with me since he passed.

He and I talked about his wishes just days before he passed as another member of my family passed on May 7. He wanted to be cremated and his ashes to be spread on Pikes Peak.

Life is short and you never know how long you have.

Soar with the Angels Kode Man.

My life will not be the same without you. 25 years together. 💗
