After fighting with every ounce of his being for the past two months, Cody Joseph Waite, 24, of Plainville, was tragically taken from this life on Wednesday June 23, 2021 from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident. He was surrounded with the love of his family and friends at Hartford Hospital.
The beloved son of Claire (Rabtoy) Riback (Robert) of Plainville and Duane Waite (Kathleen) of Fairfield, Cody was raised and educated in Plainville, where he had a lifelong love for sports and an impressive collection of sneakers. He enjoyed playing basketball, golf and video games, and had a passion for cars and bikes, but only if they were fast and satisfied his need for speed. Forever remembered for his huge heart and bright smile, Cody spread joy and kindness to everyone he met and will be missed immensely by his family and abundance of friends.
In addition to his parents and their spouses, he leaves his brothers, Ryan, Jason and Jared Riback; his sisters, Samantha and Rebecca; his grandparents, John and Maryellen Riback; many aunts uncles, cousins and his much loved four legged companion, his dog Mia.
Cody’s love for animals and all mankind may be remembered with a random act of kindness or with contributions to a Go Fund Me established to benefit animals at https://gofund.me/287abcc5
