Cody Andrew Hertz

Cody Andrew Hertz, born May 2, 1993 in Chester, PA, died at the age of 27 on May 24, 2020 in Wilmington, Delaware. He was raised in Landenberg, PA, graduated from Unionville High School in 2011 and attended Widener University from 2011 until 2014.
Cody will always be remembered as an artist of love, intelligence, and celebration. He never hesitated to help loved ones in a pinch, welcome strangers unconditionally, and bring joy and laughter with his charismatic spirit. He had an unrivaled affinity for details and an insatiable thirst to learn more about the world around him. He was a culinary rebel who would craft a feast at a moment’s notice and had an uncanny ability to ignite revelry in every room he entered. He was also a voracious Philly sports fan throughout his life.
Cody was a treasured son, brother, uncle, and nephew. He was preceded in death by his beloved step-father Gary Chaillou. He is survived by his parents Margaret Chaillou and Cyril Hertz; his brothers, James Moulsdale (Lisa), Nicholas Moulsdale (Katherine), and Alexander Hertz (Lisa); his nieces, Anna, Emilia, and Natalie; and his nephew, Benjamin. He is also survived by a vibrant community of extended family and friends in the Philadelphia area, and for that matter, in whatever city he set foot.
