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!
