Jody attended Skaneateles school district and retired from the Aurora Post Office as a rural carrier with 23 years of service.
Jody was an avid collector of record albums and loved going record hunting with his good friend Rick Spafford and visiting Angry Mom records in Ithaca NY to see his friend George. Jody also enjoyed collecting baseball cards, coins and old bottles. His favorite baseball team was the New York Yankees and he loved digging up old bottles with his son Joseph when he was still able to do that.
Jody's wife and children will always remember the good times they had together. Jody loved going to the zoo, parks, car shows and long walks in the woods to build damns and tepees. Jody and his son Joseph built a damn in the woods together that he enjoyed taking his dogs Duke and Cocoa to for a swim.
Funeral service will be held on Thursday at 10am at Robert D. Gray Funeral Home, Skaneateles. Calling hours will be on Wednesday from 4 to 7pm at the funeral home. Jody will be buried in Lake View Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the family to help funeral costs.
