Cody Warren Furstenberg was born on June 25, 1993 in Pendleton, OR. He passed away on October 29th, 2019 in Garden Grove, CA at the age of 26.

He was born to Scott Furstenberg and Tara Bishop and attended Pendleton School District from KG through 8th grade.  He had a love of sports from a young age and participated in whiffle ball, Football, Soccer, and Baseball. He attended High School at Walla Walla High School where he graduated in 2012.

He played baseball for the Walla Walla High School and also played for the Washington State American Legion Walla Walla Bruins.  In 2011 his team was the “Big 9 Regional Champs” ranked #8 in the State. He was awarded the 4A Big Nine 2nd team All League Utility Honors.
After High School he joined the Army National Guard and completed Basic and Advanced Training where he became a medic.  He married Olivia Manning on June 10th, 2013 and they welcomed a daughter, Addalie Arlene Furstenberg on November 19th, 2013 in Port Arthur, TX. Although the marriage only lasted a year they remained friends and shared a deep love for their daughter. Addalie was the light of his life and she loved her dad unconditionally.

After completing his training he moved back to Pendleton and worked for Hodgen Distributing along with his dad and brother.

Cody had such a love for life and for people. He has an infectious smile and charming personality.  He didn’t know a stranger and everyone he met became his “buddy”. He had an uncanny way of taking any bad situation and turning it around for the good for anyone he was with. Along with his love of sports Cody loved fishing and hunting, music and having bonfires with his friends. What Cody lacked for in size he made up for in passion, desire, and enthusiasm.

Although Cody had such a love for life he also had a dark side that battled with drugs.  After years of running and fighting the demons he made the call on New Years Day 2019 to check himself into rehab.  He graduated from Treehouse Recovery Center in Texas and then went to their sister facility in Huntington Beach, CA. It was here that he lost his battle with drugs.  

Through all of the challenges, Cody held a most dear position in his family’s hearts. There are no words that can explain the void that his death will leave in their lives. He was loved by all and his smile will be dearly missed.

Cody is survived by his parents, Tara (Scott) Bishop and Scott (Becky) Furstenberg, his daughter Addalie Arlene Furstenberg, brothers Jake Furstenberg and Max Bishop, and sisters Madison Furstenberg and Molly Bishop, Grandparents Eva Mabbott, Terry Smith, Bob Furstenberg, Sue (Jack) Burns and Renee’ Bishop.

Aunts and Uncles: Jeff Furstenberg (Blanche), Kim (Ron) Fox, Tyson (Megan) Furstenberg, Renee (Mark) Moore, Trina (Karl) Betty, Calli Smith, Jill (Mike) Megehee, and Mark (Lori) Bishop, along with numerous cousins.

He was preceded in death by his Grandmother, LaVonna Furstenberg, Grandfather, Sandford Bishop and Uncle Mark Johnson.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, November 9th, 2019 at 10:30 am at Pendleton First Assembly Church with a Celebration of Life to follow at Hodgen Distributing from 12-2pm.

Memorial contributions may be donated to a Trust Fund set up for Cody’s daughter, Addalie Furstenberg at Banner Bank in Pendleton, OR.

Scott and Tara, please accept my sincerest condolences for your loss. I had never made the connection to you but I had the pleasure of meeting Cody when working for a restaurant in Walla Walla. We later ran into each other in Athena when he was working for Hodgen. Cody was an amazing personality. I felt an immediate connection although we spent very little time together. I am sorry that I never made the connection to you and I sure miss seeing you both as well. My wife Jacque and I will be praying for you and your family.
