Cody Vaughn Jewett was born Nov. 28, 1980, in Rapid City to Manuel Fernandez and Beverly Jewett Livermont. He spent most of his early life in White Horse. Cody and his mother moved to Timber Lake in the early ‘90s. He went to school briefly in Timber Lake but quit to help support himself and his mother. He held jobs doing fencing, breaking horses and doing high-rise painting, which took him to various states. He wasn’t afraid to work and would find any job he could. He worked out in the Black Hills for a while until he could find work back in Timber Lake so he could take care of his mother.
At the time of his death, he was combining for Dave Biegler.
Cody loved to laugh and joke, to visit with people, and help whenever and wherever needed. Cody enjoyed the little rodeos they held in various places and was a mugger for the wild horse races.
Cody had many friends, some of which are: Verle (Bumpy) Janis, Brandon and Richard Dupris, Chad Holzer, Jimi and Artie Jewett, Dickie Steele, Justin Miner, Riggin and Dugan Smith, Dustin Ne and Matt Forje. Sometimes things got a little wild, but it was all in fun.
He enjoyed spending time with his family and was close to his nephews, Coy and Dakota. He enjoyed hunting and fishing with his cousins and friends, and “drinking a few.”
His main concern was his mother. Cody will be missed by all who knew him, especially his cute dimple when he smiled.
