Good-bye To An Old Friend

David Cannon, Another old-childhood friend has passed away.

 Growing up in Crayne, the Cannons were our next door neighbors.   We saw each other everyday and would holler across the empty lot to see what the other was doing.  From our kitchen widows at night we could see each other in front of the sink, washing dishes or doing something at the kitchen sink, we could even wave at each other from the windows. 

We played the usual childhood games then, Cowboys and Indians, Hide and Seek, Kick the Can, croquet, and many other wonderful games that went with growing up in the late 40's and 50's. 

After David married they moved to Evansville, where he had a job at Whirlpool and  we lost contact for many, many years.  But I'll always remember the days of growing up at Crayne and David being a good friend.

His obituary reads:  David A. Cannon, 70, passed away Dec. 1, 2012 at Deaconess Gateway in Evansville.  He was born July 20, 2942 in Crittenden County to Lexie and Eula Cannon and graduated from Crittenden County High School.   David retired after 25 years at Whirlpool where he was a supervisor.  He enjoyed woodworking and spending time with his son.  He loved fishing with his son and brother Harley.
