Cody Matthew Marthaller: Arrived: May 27, 1982 Departed: October 26, 2014

West Fargo, ND – The FM Observer is very sad to say that we recently lost a friend and one of the Founding Fathers of this website.

On Sunday, October 26th, Cody Marthaller lost his long battle with cancer at age 32. Back in August 2012, Cody had been diagnosed with a rare form of lung cancer.

Even though the FM Observer was just a small part of Cody’s life, he was a big part of the FM Observer. Cody Marthaller and Nick Hirchert bravely launched the FM Observer back on March 14, 2012.

Since then, Cody published about 273 posts on this website. Thirty eight were published under his real name, Cody Marthaller. Cody’s personal description of himself was: “I’m biologically human. Full-Time Superhero. Part-Time Human.”

Cody also published 235 posts under the name Bill Burns. Cody’s description of Bill Burns was: “Bill grew up in one of the largest cities in the United States, Maza, North Dakota. Being a cow milker by trade, it was only after stroking thousands upon thousands of cow nipples was he able to save up enough money and move to Fargo, ND. It was here that he joined FM Observer. In his free time he enjoys carving rocking horses out of wood, healing the sick, and running marathons across oceans.”

Even though it was time for Cody to move on, we will forever have a little part of him through his posts on the FM Observer.

What follows is a collection of some of his more memorable posts from the year 2014. We’ll start with Cody’s most recent (and final) post from Aug 20, 2014, and work our way back to January of 2014.

In the coming weeks, look for Parts 2 and 3 in this series where we’ll also remember some of Cody’s more memorable moments from 2013 and 2012 respectively.

As a Life Coach, some lessons I like to pass onto others are: 1. don't stare at strangers, especially in jail, 2. don't leave fun to find fun, 3. never pet a burning dog, 4. don't eat more than you can lift, and 5. when in doubt, jot it down.
