He was predeceased by his wife Maura. Garrett and Maura met as young children in Balbriggan. They knew each other for over 80 years and were married for 59 years. They traveled back “home” to Ireland many times over the years and those trips were always a highlight. Garrett was also predeceased by his parents, Elizabeth and Joseph Cannon, Sisters Peggy and Kathleen, Brothers Mick, Jack, Dessie, Richard, Bill, and Matt.
Garrett is survived by his children John Cannon, Elizabeth Porcheddu (Cannon) and husband Tony, Garrett W. Cannon and wife Cindy, and Paul Cannon. He is also survived by his six Grandchildren Molly, Luke, Jason, Garrett Jr., Emma, and Liam.
Garrett worked for New York City Transit Authority out of the Knightsbridge Garage for over twenty years and retired from Pfizer in Stamford, CT. He served in the US Army including serving overseas in the Korean conflict. He was an avid Irish sports fan and enjoyed following Irish and English Premier League Soccer, Golf and Boxing but most of all enjoyed keeping up with the various activities, school and sport events of his children and grandchildren. Garrett was a generous and loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend. He will be greatly missed.
