Dad wasn't just a good man, he was the best man. You hear people speak of someone when they have passed away they say "he was a good man", but dad was a great man while he was alive.
He spent his entire life saving other people's lives. He also spent countless hours building a home with his bare hands for his family. He was a father that taught his sons to work with their hands, be proud and to give 100% in everything they do. He loved his boys, his wife and he sure loved his grandkids. He was a nurse by profession, a rancher by choice and the best father, husband and grandfather by God's grace. Dad loved fishing, boxing and he loved his family.
He leaves us all with a void that will never be filled. Dad was a man that was larger than life. His presence will forever be with us in everything that we do. He leaves behind a legacy.
He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Maggie "Mumsey" Mitchell; mother, Johnny Cannon; da horse, Cocomo; and his brother, Hank who he promised to punch in the face when he got to Heaven.
He is survived by his wife, Stephanie Anne Cannon; sons, Nicholas Cannon and wife Amanda and Nathaniel Cannon and wife Deeann; grandchildren, Seth, Gracelyn, Avary, Autumn, Nathan, Nathaniel, Nevin and Nova; and sisters, Mildred Wallace, Johnny Lawson, and mother of his sons, Glenda Cannon.
A celebration of Nathaniel's life will be 2:00PM, Friday, September 22, 2017 at Cornerstone Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Larry Pouncil officiating.
