Cody James Krebsbach, age 32 of Fargo, ND passed away Sunday, October 23rd at his home. Cody was born January 9, 1984 in Minot, ND to Steve and Karen Krebsbach. He attended Shanley High School, and graduated from Fargo South High in 2002. Upon graduation, Cody enlisted in the Air National Guard and later earned his CNA degree. Cody was united in marriage to Leann Wixo on September 26th, 2008. He was also a proud member of the American Legion in Moorhead, MN. Cody enjoyed spending his time fishing and competing in local fishing tournaments, as well as watching the Bison and the Steelers. He was a talented, self-taught guitarist who enjoyed singing and playing Xbox, except when losing to his 9-year-old son. In his spare weekends, he enjoyed ghost hunting, although he never caught any. Cody’s smile, enthusiasm, charm, excitement, and sometimes odd sense of humor will be greatly missed by his friends, as well as his two sons, Karson Krebsbach and Henry Swenson; his parents; Steve and Karen Krebsbach, his sister, Tara (Josh) Haugen; his brother, Mason Krebsbach (still single); his nephews: Bronson and Bauer Haugen; his grandfather Allen Westereng; and his later love, Megan Swenson. Visitation will be 5:00-7:30 pm Wednesday with the prayer service at 7:30 pm at Boulger Funeral Home and Celebration of Life Center. A funeral service will be held at 11:00 am Thursday at Hope Lutheran Church South Campus with visitation one hour before the service.

Memories Timeline


  1. I worked with Cody Thursday nights at the Legion. He was a great person. He said he liked working with Carol and I. That is a big compliment for 2 older gals!! He was always very polite. I met his one son once. He also seemed like a very polite young man. I will miss Cody greatly. Thursdays will never be the same.
    Rest with the Lord Cody!!

  5. Karen & all, my condolences for you in the loss of Cody. It doesn’t seem that long ago he’d be with you in the halls of Hawley schools.

  6. Lord Jesus Christ, bring Cody safely to your kingdom. Flood our hearts with love and friendship to support one another, to bring comfort to those in pain, to love one another regardless of indifference, for each one of us have been touched differently by Cody. Allow them to receive forgiveness through our pious prayer, which they have always been yearning. For this I pray through Jesus, Our Lord. Amen

  7. Cody grew up in Hawley and was in TaeKwonDo for some time with my brother, Tyler, and I. He was an amazing friend then, and from time to time I’d see out and about Fargo or speak with him on Facebook. I will always have fond memories of him and he will never be forgotten. My prayers and thoughts are with his sons and family. Rest In Peace, friend.

  8. So sorry to hear if your loss! I always loved having Cody come and visit us when we lived by your family. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

  9. Steve, Karen and family,
    We are so sorry to hear of the loss of Cody. We will keep you in our prayers. We remember all the summers spent at Star Lake and watching our nephew, Brian, and Cody hang out.

  10. I am so saddened to hear of Cody’s passing. I went to Shanley with him. Prayers to all of you in this very difficult time. I pray that God wraps his loving arms around all of you and gives you strength and healing.

  11. Dear Family of Cody, I am so very sorry for Cody’s passing. I remember our conversations we had in the “mancave” & at family functions. I enjoying our time together. May our Mother Mary take Cody underhis mantle, and she bring Cody to her Son. May the Holy Spirit comfort each of you. Living prayer sent. Sincerely, Greg Wixo

  12. Steve, Karen and family,
    I’m so sorry to hear about Cody’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, especially Karson.

  13. Oh Cody, you will be so missed. I don’t know who will ever give me the bear hugs that you always did. When I saw you at Sam’s wedding I didn’t know it would be the last time. I am an old lady, I was supposed to go first. You and I talked about this. We agreed that at my age I would go first. Remember you told me that when I got there I was supposed to get a message to you somehow that there really is a life after. I know you know that now. You asked me to meet you at the gate to help you get in, LOL. Now I will have to ask you to do that bargaining with St Peter instead when I get there. I wish we could go back and change whatever happened. However, I do know you would not come back if you were allowed. Who would ever want to leave Heaven once you have come face to face with our Father. Watch over your babies and Megan from where you are. Until we meet again, I will miss you. I am serious though, please meet me at the gate, I might need to know somebody who knows somebody to get in. Love you Cody. Rest now.

  14. Karen, Steve, and Family,
    We are so sorry for your loss, we’re sending our thoughts and prayers, as you navigate this difficult journey. We’ve experienced the same kind of loss except that it wasn’t a child, that would be the worst kind.
    Lots of love sent your way,
    Karla and Keary Brewster

  15. Although I cannot be there at the funeral, I will be with all of you in prayer that day. I am so sorry for your loss and will talk to you soon. Jenny and the kids will be there. Love you guys.

  16. Karen and Steve….. we are so sorry that you are having such heartache. Cody will be missed and it never gets easier, only different. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  24. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. This is such a sad day. Our family has such good memories of the kids growing up together at Eberts on Starlake.

  25. Steve, Karen, Tara, & Mason,
    I am so deeply sorry for your loss. Growing up friends with Tara I have countless memories with your family. So many hilarious stories and fun times with everyone. Cody had such a lightning quick and razor sharp wit that was at times hard to appreciate when you were at the receiving end of it. It typically left me sputtering wondering, gosh how did he think of something so clever SO quick? He had his soft side too, he took pity on his little sister’s friend and took me to junior prom at Shanley. Thank you Cody, and Krebsbachs for always making me laugh. I hope you all can find comfort in one another and possibly some unique humor in one another like Cody always did.

  26. I attended Shanley with Cody as a Freshman. I have not had an interaction with him since then, but I sure do remember his great smile and laugh. It was so contagious. My condolences to all of his family and close friends. May he rest in peace now.

  27. Steve, Karen and Krebsbach family. I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Cody. I would like to send my sincere sympathy at this time.

  28. Dear Mason and family,

    We are so sorry about your loss. May God give you strength at this difficult time for all of your family.

    Dragan Miljkovic & family

  29. Our deepest sympathy to all who loved Cody and grieve. Our family will miss Cody along with so many who were touched by his life.
    He will always have a very special place in our hearts.
