Edward Cody Chobert, age 87 passed away unexpectedly November 5, 2023 in Kalispell Montana.\n\nHe was born in Philadelphia PA on May 6, 1936. He is preceded in death by his beloved mother Vivian Chobert (née Romano), his stepfather George Chobert, and his Aunt Valeria Fawl. He is survived by his special family members Ivy, his children Dylan, Natasha, Aiyana, Emily and Erica along with his sister Kate and his niece and nephew Lauren and Eric.\n\nHe attended school in Pennsylvania. He worked for the Philadelphia Inquirer owned by Walter Annenburg but soon left to pursue his great love for horses and became involved in riding. He was an excellent rider receiving championship medals and trophies while following the rodeo circuit. He then bought a ride and started to follow the carnival circuit. He switched from rides to owning a traveling arcade in the 80’s. Arcades were a hot commodity in those days and many a teenager grew up playing the games in the Arcade tent. After the arcade business started to fizzle out he switched to mobile food operations and thus The Cody Burger was born. He expanded his food operation and travelled with various carnivals throughout Canada and the US before finally settling on the The City Of Fun Shows based in Utah. He was a true Showman in all sense of the word and he loved to sit around and cut up jackpots.\n\nCody had an amazing zest for life and brought so much joy to everyone around him. He was always happy and looking for fun and his next adventure. He will be surely missed by all who were blessed to have him in their life.\n\nA memorial service will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, January 20, 2024 at Olpin Family Mortuary; 494 South 300 East, Pleasant Grove, Utah.\n\nCondolences may be sent to the family at olpinmortuary.com.
