LEONARD “CODY” BOUDREAU-EASTMAN
August 29, 1997 – December 25, 2023
In loving memory of Leonard “Cody” Boudreau-Eastman, also known as Singing Wolf (Nagamowin ma’iingan). A member of the O Chi Chak Ko Sipi First Nation and Metis community of St. Laurent, Manitoba. Cody, 26, unexpectedly passed away in his sleep on Christmas morning. He leaves behind a legacy of pride in his heritage and a profound impact on those who knew him.
Born to Sylvia Eastman and Leonard Boudreau, Cody is survived by his grandparents, Leonard and Sharon Boudreau, his siblings Christopher, Chris (Dade), Jeremy (Kira), Brittany and Kaitlyn. His memory lives on in the hearts of his nieces, nephews, great-niece, numerous cousins, aunts and uncles as well as other beloved family members. Cody was welcomed back to the spirit world by those who have passed before him including his grandmother, great grandfather, uncles and aunt after a 4 day sacred fire that was lit for him. Cody as we called him was a fierce believer in equality and had great compassion for his communities; he always shared how he felt and reflected after attending a community event.
Cody was working on his career at Red River Airbrakes, swiftly rising through the ranks with his exceptional work ethic; Cody carried much pride in his work and enjoyed the workplace. An avid gamer, he found joy in playing NHL and formed lasting friendships with fellow online gamers who now mourn his loss. Cody was a graduate of Tec Voc High School and completed with a dual diploma in the grade 12 academics and his level 1 auto mechanics. He was planning to return to complete his level 2 hopefully at RRCC.
Known for his love of Beatrice chocolate milk, all dressed chips and pizza pops, his family is quite familiar with his simple enjoyments of life. Cody, being an avid pet lover, had a soft spot for his cats Bomber and Jet, Tigger and his fur sibling Joey (dog). With a kind heart and a quiet demeanor, he approached life with a unique perspective and an interest in conspiracy theories (especially flat earth and chemtrails) engaging in discussions with passion, if Cody was able to get you on his philosophies you were in for one interesting conversation. Cody had a huge heart filled with compassion. He will forever be remembered for his silent demeanor and cherished for his simple yet discreet giggle!.
Cody’s unexpected departure leaves a massive void in the hearts of those who loved him or joked with him daily. May his memory be a source of comfort and strength during this difficult time. Until we meet again Cody! We love you!
