Beloved Son, brother, grandson, uncle, and friend to many, Cody Mitchell Root died unexpectedly on October 6, 2021. Cody was 36 years old and was born August 7, 1985 in Santa Barbara, CA.

Cody lived a bright life, full of love and laughter. He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends any chance that he got. He considered many of his friends as his extended family.

Cody could light up a room with his shining personality and infectious laugh. He always had a story to tell or a fun fact to share during any conversation. He was always everyone’s biggest supporter, and gave words of wisdom and comforting advice to anyone who needed to hear it. He lived life fully and enjoyed every opportunity that came his way.  He loved being outdoors and in nature seeing the wildlife and beautiful plants.

Cody held many jobs in the Santa Barbara community and met many people; he never forgot a name or face, and was always happy to greet people when he saw them again. He made many friends and many connections throughout Santa Barbara County.
