Cody Albers wasn’t just some man. Cody was a beloved son, a brother, an uncle, a grandson, but most importantly, he was an amazing father. Cody was the type of man that never met a stranger. He didn’t care where you came from or how long you were sticking around, the moment he shook your hand you were a friend for life. And the moment you needed help, whether you asked for it or not, he was the first in line to give it. And good luck trying to argue with him about it. Watching him build his legacy from the ground up was awe-inspiring. He spent countless hours on the road putting in the work to build Albers Heavy Haul into something that he and especially his boys could be proud of. But while he was racking up the miles he always took the time to call. Because that’s who he was, the one that would always call and check in just to make sure you were okay and to let you know he was thinking about you. We will miss those calls.
If you ever had a conversation with Cody you would know 2 things.. First, he was funny. But not in a simple chuckle kind of way. More of a side splitting, boistrous, can’t breath cause you’re laughing so hard, kind of way. And the second thing was that he loved his kids more than life. The entire world could implode and all you would see through the smoke is Cody on the front lines with unwavering determination building it back piece by piece because it meant protecting and providing for his boys. It wasn’t fame or bragging rights or even money that motivated him to keep pushing. It was simply love.
Today, as we say goodbye, we remember and honor him. Tomorrow we just simply try to live up to him.
