When John Gannon was born, how he brightened our lives with those big blue eyes and that blonde hair, so easy to tousle. He loved his matchbox cars, his Red Ted, and his transformers.

I don’t remember when John Gannon reached my height, but I do remember wondering when in the world he would ever stop growing. Six feet? Six two? Six five?

I guess it took a big body to hold such a loving heart. John Gannon was a sweet child and a gentle, graceful man. If he loved you, you knew it. He would look you in the eye and tell you. That’s rare and wonderful.

John Gannon enjoyed spending time with his family. And when Gannon was born, he became a joyous, proud, and devoted father, sharing his love of the woods, the wind, and the sand with his son.

Like most highly intelligent people, John was never bored – or boring. He immersed himself in one project or another. He was a skilled and generous gardener, the best source for interesting and quirky movies and TV shows, and always quick with a wry and funny comment.

John Gannon was truly given every gift but length of years. He will be deeply, deeply missed for many lifetimes. He is gone far too soon and leaves such a giant hole in our hearts. But we’ll be with him again, when it’s our time. I expect he’s now off somewhere with his good pal Buzz happily at his side, exploring new and interesting paths.

Deepest condolences and much love to Lynne, John, and Cassie and the rest of his loving family and friends.

And God bless you, John Gannon. You carry with you our love for all of time.
