George Michael “Cody” McDonald, age 33, passed away on September 13th, 2020 surrounded by his closest family members at KU Medical Center. Cody is survived by his parents, Ruth Ann Trischler and Michael J. Trischler, his sister, Maggie McDonald-Trischler, and his brother, Nick Trischler. He is also survived by his grandparents, Roger “Old Goat” Holter, Richard and Virginia Trischler, as well as nephews, Mark, Joel, and Holt, niece, Annie, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his father, Michael McDonald, maternal grandmother, Mary Ann Holter, and paternal grandparents, George and Codyne McDonald. Cody was born on September 2nd, 1987 at Providence Medical Center to Ruth Ann Holter and Michael McDonald. He graduated from Basehor Linwood High School in 2006. He first worked at Walmart as a cart pusher then joined an electrical apprenticeship with Faith Technologies. He then worked with IBEW Union Local 24 for several years. Cody was one of the kindest people you would have ever met and had the biggest heart ever. He was always willing to offer a helping hand and would literally give the shirt off his back. He enjoyed building and tinkering with things. He was amazing with his way of approaching a problem and coming up with a solution. He was incredibly talented with wood and metal crafts. He had been fixing old lawn mowers and other lawn equipment, doing his part to help the earth. He was a skilled woodworker and electrician. He was a very hands-on uncle and adored his nephews and niece. He loved the outdoors and fishing, and one of his greatest joys was to out fish his grandfather.

Our best time with Cody was when we took him to Houston, TX for several days. He was 11, and it was his first time on an airplane. At his request we went to the Space Center, and we went to Galveston. He LOVED the beach and riding a boogie board. We flew out of St. Louis, so on the way home we went up to the top of the Arch. It was a really fun trip for the 3 of us.

With love,
Grandma Ginny & Grandpa Dick

You will be missed in more ways then you will ever know. I am so happy I have memories, from prom, to hanging out, to these awesome items you made and bought for me. I’m glad I have these items to remind me of you. Fly high until we meet again sweet dear friend.
