I send my deepest condolences to the Cannon Family. I was able to enjoy his friendship throughout his time in the Marine Corps at VMFA-314. Amazing Marine and person, always someone you could count on. He had many friends in the Marine Corps and left a mark. He will be missed, once a Marine ALWAYS a Marine.

The first person to make me feel COMPLETELY comfortable at work 3.5 years ago. The first person to call me by my name even though I was only part of the team 2 days in. The first person to come to my rescue when I was being yelled at or threatened. The first person to put me first before himself when anyone got aggressive. The first person to get me to hang out with coworkers outside of work. My first friend at Butterworth 😭💔 Cannon, you were absolutely amazing, are incredibly cherished and will forever be missed. 😭💔

Praying for your family and friends always. ♥️

I was honored to be your friend Bob and I miss you so very much! I went to school with you from elementary until graduation every once in awhile I would sneak away from Volleyball practice to watch your wrestling matches. I worked with Bob at Spectrum and later I would see him working when I ran calls with AMR and Life at Saint Mary's. You laughed at me for burning rice and told me you were going to teach me how to cook. I'm gonna miss getting random pictures of your dog and your dads pot bellied pig that you said would chase me but I didn't care. You were amazing at everything you did from your career, your time in the Marines, your cooking, your yardwork and much more you put 100% into everything you did and you always impressed me. You always made me laugh and for that I will always be thankful. I miss you Bob more than words can describe. RIP and Semper Fi my dear friend.

You know when you have those people that when you walk into work, “hey Christine!!!”

Instant smile. Instant great start to the shift because you know your people are there.

He was one of my people. First at Spectrum Butterworth, six years ago. I was riding in a wheelchair like I’m (probably) not supposed to as a patient transporter. Third shift. No one was around. I remember him yelling, “hey!” And I couldn’t stop giggling. Every night I worked, for six entire years, this man made me laugh, almost pee my pants, and was my knight in shining armor, especially when I was assaulted in the emergency room - so badly that I was scared to go back to work. He encouraged me. Stuck up for me. And walked me out to my car for the next month after that happened.


My first day at Saint Mary’s, a place I was so hesitant to be at, I was shaking - I hear “Hey Christine!! What the hell are you doing here! You’re supposed to be traveling the world!” And the amount of anxiety I had being there, the nerves, the pressure I had building in my head... instantaneous relief because my cannon was there.

My knight. (who moved his crazy bass to day shift).

Rest In Peace Dear Andrew. May you forever know how much I appreciated having you in my life.

From vacations to going to his basic training graduation, spending time with Andy was enjoyable! Will miss you until we meet again in heaven.

Perry and Michelle, and family,

No words are sufficient. No thoughts or feelings are deep enough. Perhaps a little love will help just a little bit.

Our prayers are for you and yours.
