He had an unparalleled ability to make people laugh and forget their worries. Whether through his witty comebacks or his hilarious anecdotes, Kody's presence was like a ray of sunshine that lit up any room.

Kody was the life of every party, spreading laughter and joy wherever he went. His genuine love for his family was evident in everything he did.

Kody is survived by his loving father Kenneth Pounds Sr., adoring sister Sabrina Garza, brothers Kenneth Pounds Jr. and wife Tabitha, William Peterson and wife Jennifer, and Kolton Pounds. He also leaves behind beloved grandma Jan Clifton, uncles Bo Clifton and wife Liz; Billy Lomax, Aunt Nellie Johnson, as well as numerous cousins and friends whose lives were touched by his kindness.
