The man as others percieved him

  • Codjoe was always himself, no pretense.
  • He wasn’t flashy, over the top, pretentious; he was true to himself and felt comfortable in his own skin.
  • Most importantly, he was a man of integrity a man of big and generous heart, a man who didn’t take himself too seriously yet took everybody very seriously.
