Dear Friends, Judge Canon unexpectedly passed away on April 8, 2020. It’s difficult to say goodbye, no matter the circumstances, but it’s especially hard when the world seems so upside down. The family will plan a memorial service when the world looks somewhat normal again.
Judge lived life to the fullest, traveling the world and making friends all along the way. He loved history, especially the civil war. He also loved a good joke and any song by Neil Young.
Judge loved his family and he loved his friends as if they were part of his family. Judge would do just about anything for anyone, and he often did, helping family, friends and people in need wherever he saw them.
Judge deeply loved his son, Will Canon, and was so proud of Will’s family, Nell Bader Canon and their son, Hayes (or “H. Aubrey” as Pops called him). He was close, as well, to his life mate, Jerri Seibert, and his step-son, Zak Seibert and family, Kayla Mattingly and grandson, Grayson Seibert. Judge’s sister, Beckie Canon, was not only a loving sister, but his “right hand person” in business.
Will texted his dad the night before he died, about John Prine passing away. Judge responded, "The circle gets smaller." Judge was a huge part of our circle that included each of you, and he will always be missed.
Our hearts are heavy for losing him, however, our hearts are thankful for having known him, for having loved him and for having him love us all for so long.
Please help us to honor Judge by making a contribution to the San Antonio Food Bank, an organization that was so important to him. The food bank is crucial to those thousands of San Antonians who are without jobs and food at this time.
Please feel free to share this page with your family and friends. Every dollar we raise will advance the San Antonio Food Bank's great cause. Together, we can make a difference and honor Judge at the same time!
As Judge always ended his Facebook posts these days…Stay Safe!
Judge was my one and only sibling. To me, that was all I ever needed. I can’t imagine not having him to call or text to share a good trivia question, sports conversation or what kind of good sales day one of us might have had. He was always my best “cheerleader”. He left behind a wonderful legacy in his son, Will along with Will’s precious family. They make up most of the real family I have left on this earth. I will continue to “talk to you” Judge about all the many things I see each day I know we would have shared. My emptiness will be filled by the love you left behind. You were the best brother I could have ever wanted!!! Love you Always. Beckie
What a wonderful way to continue his legacy.

We've only known Judge for a couple years, but in those years we have grown to love him and think of him as family. He was an inspiration to so many and opened his heart to everyone. We love you Judge, you will be missed dearly by all.

Love to Will, Nell, Hayes and the rest of Judge's family. Praying for God's peace and comfort during a terrible time. We love y'all.
Judge, you didn't like donating to formal organizations...always fearing that the money wouldn't get to the folks who needed it. You preferred helping people in a more direct, one-on-one sort of way.
But one day, you got in your head that we should donate directly to the food bank and that is what we did.
There couldn't be a better way to honor and remember you than helping out folks so profoundly affected by this pandemic.
Our lives will never be the same without you. We love you and miss you, Pops...

Good people seem to make their exit from this world far too soon. Judge was one of the good guys. I lack words to express my grief over the passing of my best friend, my big brother. He touched lives without leaving a space for doubt in our hearts. He touched them with words, with a smile, with courage, encouragement, and humor. Indeed I will remain forever grateful for the lifetime opportunity to have been a part of Judges life. There will forever be a void in our lives. But he will remain in our hearts and in our memories. Road trips won't be the same without our conversations which always ended with a joke and Judge saying "I love you man, drive safe!".
In life we leave a legacy for our children, we leave our footprints wherever we travel and we leave our fingerprints on every heart we touch. Judge touched many.
We love you man, drive safe!
