This memorial website was created in loving memory of our Skateboard Hero, Kodee Alcott . It was created as a place where his family, friends, teachers,and classmates can remember him.
Kodee was born in New Jersey on October 14, 1991 and passed away in his home in Pennsauken, New Jersey on March 31, 2005 at the age of 13. His parents, Trina Kemble-Alcott of Pennsauken NJ. Also his father (Daddy)Robby & Step-mother(2nd Mother) Dawn Alcott , brother's Jimmy & Jonathan of Burlington, NJ. Kodee loved his brothers and family very much. He also had the best Grandparents Lee (Nan) & (Pop)Charlie Alcott, Also Pat & John Crivaro. He also had many Aunts & Uncles,Susan,Donald,Melanie,Bonnie,Chuck and a whole lot more who all loved Kodee. EVERYONE LOVED HIM !!!
Kodee had many nicknames, Kodman, Kod, Kodeebug, Sunny, Messy Marvin, and Little One, & Silly Sam!
Kodee was on the honor-roll for 4 years straight and had perfect attendance for 4 years, finally missing a day in 6th grade. He was very intelligent. He had to know how every thing worked and would take things apart to see what was inside. He was very curious about everything.
We will remember him forever as someone who was always there to make you laugh and smile. He always had a smile on his face, he was one in a million and will be missed by everyone.Kodee brought so much life to everyone he knew. If you knew Kodee you know how much fun he was to be around, whether it was to watch him skateboard, snowboard, or play hockey.
One thing that Kodee hid from all of his frirends was how he kept all of his trophies in the basement. In 1995, he won 7 trophies in the Sunburst Beauty pagent contest! He was so cute. This was to be the start of many trophies which he would win.
Kodee was very athletic. He played soccer in 1997 for Collingdale, PA, winning his first trophy in sports. He then played Teeball for Collingdale, PA during the years 1997-1998, winning two trophies.He started wrestling in 1999 for Northern Burlington Regional where he won two trophies, one medal, and 13 pins his first year (WOW!).
Then he started to play hockey for the International Sports Center of Cherry Hill, NJ mite league for ages 6-8, in the year 2000. He received a trophy for Most Improved Player also in 2000 with the ISC Mite league Champs! He also won three trophies and one medal.
In 2001 he started playing for Pennsauken, NJ Roller Hockey . His coach was Reese DeFeo, He was not only a GREAT coach to Kodee but also a mentor, someone Kodee could look up to. Kodee really liked and enjoyed playing hockey .
Kodee won 8 trophies for hockey in the 2001 thru 2005 seasons.
Kodee always played in his age group, and also played up in an age group. When he was 12, he played for the 12 and under and 14 and under age bracket. Always challanging himself.
In the Fall of 2004, Kodee received a medal for Most Improved Player for the 14 and under division. During this time he was also on the Travel team for Pennsauken, NJ. He played on 3 teams in one season !!! O' lets not forget playing Ice hockey in the 2004 spring season with his cousin Michael Cooker for the Timbercreek Chargers! Man that was a lot of hockey!!!
But that is what he enjoyed and was absolutely GREAT at!! I looked forward to the weekends just to watch him play. I must say Pennsauken Hockey has been a wonderful experience for Kodee. I'm glad we had Reese to coach all the kids on the team.
Kodee wanted to become a famous skateboader, that was his life dream! He was the best and all the kids looked up to him because he wasn't afraid of anything. He had a vertical ramp in his driveway and would do all kinds of tricks on it. Then he would try riding his bike or gas scooter up the ramp. KODEE had "NO FEAR "!!!!
There was nothing he was afraid to try ! He would also ride his dirt bike and do the biggest jumps there were!! Amazingly, he never had a broken bone, ever . A whole lot of stitches, but that was just Kodee .
Kodee was a great son. Loving, caring, always helping out. We did everything together, from sking, snowboarding, skateboarding, hockey, surfing, or just watching a movie together, snuggling on the couch with his head on my sholder. Every night he would tell me "Good Night" and " I love you Mom ! See ya tomorrow."
Kodee had the personality that everyone loved. He was funny, outgoing, and loved life. Kodee had so much to live for and so much more to give.He was just starting to take guitar lessons in March 2005. He had his second guitar lesson on March 29,2005 two days before he died. The song he was learning to play was "Stairway to Heaven." He was taken from us suddenly as a result of a tragic accident when he decided to play "The Choking Game." To anyone unfamiliar with this horrible so called "game", please don't hesitate to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I don't want to lose another child to this nightmare.
Please feel free to share your memories by writing a tribute, condolence or by lighting a candle on his site, to let others know of the special connection you shared with Kodee. We all feel his loss deeply. We will remember him always, and we will carry him with us in our hearts forever! He will never be forgotten.

miss you! / Mommy (Mom)
Kod,No matter how much time goes by it still seems like yesterday. I miss you sooo much, God has given me a daughter now Deanna, but I'm sure you already know all that. Her dad is Bob and a great guy , finaly. Not like all the rest. Keep looking down...
If tomarrow Starts without me.. If tomorrow starts without me, and I’m not there to see, If the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me; I wish so much you wouldn’t cry the way you did today, While thinking of the many things we didn’t get to say. I know how much you love me…as much as I love you, And each time that you think of me, I know you’ll miss me too; But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand, That an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand, And said my place was ready in heaven far above, And that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly love. But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye, For all my life, I’d always thought, I didn’t want to die. I had so much to live for, so much left yet to do, It seemed almost impossible, that I was leaving you. I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad, I thought of all the love we shared and all the fun we had. If I could relive yesterday just even for a while, I’d say good-bye and kiss you, and maybe see you smile. But then I fully realized that this could never be, For emptiness and memories would take the place of me. And when I thought of worldly thing I might miss come tomorrow, I thought of you, and when I did my heart was filled with sorrow. But when I walked through heaven’s gates I felt so much at home. When God looked down and smiled & at me from His great golden throne, He said, “This is eternity and all I’ve promised you.. Today your life on earth is past but here life starts anew. I promise no tomorrow but today will always last, And since each day’s the same way there’s no longing for the past. You have been so faithful, so trusting and so true. Though there were times you did some things you knew you shouldn’t do. But you have been forgiven and now at last you’re free. So won’t you come and take my hand and share my life with me? “ So when tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart, For every time you think of me,I’m right here, in your heart.
