Harry Lloyd Cannon joined his heavenly Father on Monday, December 31, 2012. Born August 10, 1932 in Waco , Texas .
After graduating from Waco High School in May, 1951 he attended Tarleton University before joining the United States Army. It was while serving in Philadelphia Pennsylvania during the Korean Conflict that he met his wife Dorothy Anne Cotshott. They were married on April 7, 1956.

Harry enjoyed hunting, woodworking and most of all antiques. He loved the challenge of taking something old and worn and stripping it down, sanding and staining it and bringing out it's true beauty....he was a banker by day and a true handyman by night, jack of all trades.
