Larry W. Cannon

Larry W. Cannon 1958 - 2024- Abingdon, VA


Larry finished his Earthly journey on Friday, June 28th and is now with his Savior.


By trade, Larry was an electrician and worked for Appalachian Power Company for over 20 years. He enjoyed his family and being helpful when he could. Larry was very mechanically inclined, which allowed him to give advice on how to repairs things. He was also very passionate about sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ when and where he could.


Larry was the son of the late Robert E. Cannon.


He is survived and greatly missed by his beloved wife, Beverly, who he shared 19 wonderful years with, his son, Chad Cannon; daughter, Michelle Cannon (Parker); stepdaughter, Callie Cunningham (Ryan); mother, Sylvia Cannon; half-brother, Ronnie Cannon (Teresa); sisters, Karen Leab (Carl), and Patty Jackson; along with several nieces and nephews, and many loving fur friends.


Also, Larry was looking forward to being promoted to "Grandpa" in November.


The family would like to extend their utmost gratitude to the incredible ICU staff at Johnson City Medical Center for their loving care.


To honor Larry’s wishes there will be no formal visitation or funeral service.


A graveside service will be held on Monday, July 01, 2024, at 11 AM at Greendale Chapel Cemetery with Pastor Mark Estepp officiating. Those wishing to attend are asked to arrive at the cemetery by 10:45 A.M.


 In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions be made to either Highlands Fellowship 22417 Watauga Rd. Abingdon, VA 24211, New Collective Church 100 Centre Park Dr. Johnson City, TN 37615, or the charity of your choice.


"But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform out lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.”  Philippians 3:20-21
