Cody Eric Atcheson, 26, of Fort Oglethorpe, lost his battle with addiction on Saturday, September 7, 2019, with his dog Zeus by his side.
Cody was born in Chattanooga, lived most of his life in the North Georgia area, and spent the last year in South Jordan, Utah. He was homeschooled since the third grade and attended the Word of Life Bible Institute. Cody worked at Buffalo Wild Wings in Fort Oglethorpe and in the Sugar House location of Salt Lake City, Utah. He was a kid at heart who loved movies and loved to laugh. Cody “owned” his birthday of April 1, by making people laugh, telling jokes, and pulling pranks. He is loved and will be missed by all.
