William "Cody" Brett was born Aug. 23, 1954 in Sandersville, and passed away Nov. 18, 2019 in Milledgeville, at the age of 65. He was born to the late Harold Jerry Brett, Sr. and the late Marolyn Sheppard Brett.

Cody underwent a liver transplant in 1985 and defied all odds, living a healthy and happy life for the next 25 years. He spent his life living and working around Baldwin County, and developed many lifelong friendships throughout the years. He was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying hunting, fishing, and working in his garden of beautiful daylilies and irises, which he compared to thousands of butterflies, winning many shows along the way. He also loved spending time with his large and loving family, who surrounded him in his final days.
Cody is survived by his wife, Velma Dominy Brett; his siblings, Jerry (Janet) Brett, David (Carol) Brett, Charles Brett, Ted (Peggy) Brett, Mickey (Elaine) Brett, and Debbie (Fred) Schmalz; his children, Bill Brett, Cindy (Kirby) Kilgore, Jay (Cindy) Brett, and Jamie (Dana) Brett; his grandchildren, Ashlee (Steven) Huggins, Jenna Brett, Jamie (Brittni) Brett, Jr., Justin Kilgore, Brooke Kilgore, Cody Brett, III, Rob Brett, and Jessica Dawkins; and four great grandchildren, Jamie Lee Garrett, Les Brett, Tripp Brett, and Matthew Dawkins.

My thoughts are with Cody’s family. It is so painful to lose someone, yet no one else can really know all that you feel except our Heavenly Father. He knows and feels your pain. He calls death an enemy and promises to remove it forever, Isaiah 25:8 “And he will swallow up death forever…” He also promised to wake up all our loved ones, in the memorial tombs, from death (Isaiah 26:19). What joy it will be to see our loved ones again and to enjoy life as our Creator purposed (Psalms 145:16). I  hope these words give all of you comfort.
