IN MEMORIAM: John Andrew Cannon, 39; Organist At Christ Church

IN MEMORIAM

John Andrew Cannon, 39;

Organist At Christ Church

John Andrew Cannon

COOPERSTOWN – John Andrew Cannon, 39, the organist and choir director at Christ Episcopal Church, died in the early morning hours of Friday, Feb. 10, after a massive heart attack while visiting his brother in Charlottesville, Va. An autopsy found the heart attack was caused by undiagnosed atherosclerosis.

Born at Huntsville Hospital in Alabama on Jan. 3, 1978, John grew up in Scottsboro until age 15. He loved playing sports: baseball and basketball, tennis and golf, among others. Sidelined after breaking his arm in third grade, he redirected his energies to learning to play the organ.
