August 31, 1939 – September 19, 2019

Bobby Cannon passed away on September 19, 2019 of natural causes, peacefully in his sleep.  He was a loving father and a very much-loved person.  He had retired from the Air Force, Civil Service, and was a longtime Colorado Springs resident.

Bobby was born in Texas in August of 1939, the youngest of 12 children.  In 1964, when Bobby was stationed at the Pentagon, he met Ann Lee Mckelleget.  They married in July of 1964.  He was a loving husband and caregiver to Ann, his wife of 47 years, until her passing in May of 2011.

He is survived by daughter, Deborah Cook.  I will deeply miss the great man that was my father.

A memorial service will not be held, due to his wishes.  Bobby and Ann Cannon will be inurned together at the Shrine of Remembrance Mausoleum.

  1. Ms. Debbie,
    I saw your fathers obit in the Gazette, and just wanted to say I am sorry for your loss.
    My thoughts are with you.

  2. Debbie,
    My sincere condolences on the loss of your dad and my Uncle Bobby. I just received this year’s Christmas Card to Bobby back in the mail today. My husband, Mike, found the information regarding your father’s passing online. Your dad was my favorite uncle. I lost my Mom, your Aunt Theo Cannon, this year on September 27th. She was married to your Uncle James Cannon.
    I’m now thinking of you and your family, wishing you peace this holiday season.

  3. The Christmas card was returned today and I immediately searched to find out why. That’s when I saw this listing. I am so sorry for your loss. Mr. Cannon was a wonderful person. I cleaned for him when he lived on base and a few times when he had his new condo. He attended my sons Eagle ceremony and I know he had so much fun that day. We served chicken cordon Bleu and he said that was his favorite dish. My heart breaks that the world has lost a remarkable person. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. He loved you so much and always spoke highly of you.
