Hiram Cody Tegart
Hiram Cody Tegart (Cody) was born in 1950 to a pioneering family in the Columbia Valley of British Columbia. He grew up on a ranch near Brisco where he learned to ride, shoot and work hard at a young age. Some of his earliest memories were of watching men ride off to his dad’s hunting territory and wanting so badly to join them. He learned to pack a horse and throw a diamond hitch and spent many of his summers in the hills. After high school, Cody tried his hand at being a carpenter in Calgary but the mountains called him back. Eventually he purchased the guiding business from his father in 1979 and ran it successfully before selling it in 1993. He continued to guide for others and in the off-season he logged and ran heavy equipment. He retired in 2017 and moved to Winfield, Alberta. Cody passed away in the spring of 2018.
