On April 7, 2013, the Scranton Prep Community lost one of its most unique and gifted members. Cody Barrasse, a member of the class of 2009, was our classmate and dear friend. We will always remember his fighting spirit, his generosity, his sense of humor, his love of life and his ability to put the needs of others before his own.


Cody's Story

Cody Barrrasse touched the lives of many before he was taken from us all too early. Whether it was playing football for Scranton Prep, pickup basketball with his friends, or watching sports on TV, Cody was always a competitor. He had a constant drive to succeed and better those around him. Shortly after his tragic death in April 2013, Cody’s friends and family wanted to find a way to remember him and carry on his legacy.
