He was active in the St Marks Men’s Club, enjoyed the Golf & Garden Clubs, and many social activities. The Catholic Daughters considered him an honoree member because of all his help.

Dear Cannon Family,
There are simply no words to describe my deepest and heartfelt sympathy for the passing of Bob (although to me he was always - “Mr. Cannon”) As a young teenager, I have such fond memories of the countless hours spent with my high school buddy, Rob, at the Cannon home and it was always filled with warmth, love & laughter. Mr. Cannon was one of the most generous men I have ever met and he always made me feel so welcome and comfortable in your home. Your dad was an amazing man and I know he will truly be missed. May his memories provide comfort to you all. Again, my deepest condolences to the entire Cannon family during this time.
Much love – Peter Fayne

Dear, Aunt Barbara, Cousins, Rob, Pam, Susan and Rich...and all the grandchildren. The Fagan families hearts are broken over the loss of my beloved Uncle Bob. He truly will always be remembered as being one of the kindest person I know. My Uncle Bob was always caring and wanted to know what was going on in my children’s lives. He was always happy to hear of the sports they were doing and how school was going for them. My Uncle Bob always gave me encouragement and praise how I was raising my three daughters. He truly had a heart of gold. We are going to miss him deeply and the family will never be the same without you Uncle Bob. All my love to my dear cousins, Aunt Barbara and all the grandchildren. Heaven gained a true Angel...you will always be greatly missed. Rest In Peace Uncle Bob, you lived a wonderful life...till we meet again. Love your niece Doreen and the whole Fagan Family . Xo

Dear Barbara and family, We were so sorry to hear this sad news! Please know that you are all in our prayers! Aggie told us about Bob’s passing! What I remember of him from Brooklyn and even later when we did have the pleasure of seeing you both again is how he was always so pleasant even though he did not know us that well. Blessings to you all, Natalie and Ed Fisher
