Relation: Family friends

Barbara and I just learned about John’s sudden passing and it is difficult at times like this to find words that could help you deal with the sorrow and pain.

You had much to be proud of John not only for his many outstanding rugby achievements but that he was also a wonderful and decent person who helped earn the long time respect your family had in our community.

May his soul rest in peace.

John & Barbara Skorupa.

Peter and Jane
My sincere condolences on the loss of your son John. How sad that he died so very young. Losing a child is such a huge loss.
Best wishes.

From: Joyce McKay
Relation: he went to school - Abby Sr- with my son

It’s always hard to lose someone you love but when they are so young and still have much to give it’s harder. John and my son Pat were both involved in sports at Abby so I met your son. and Pat always spoke highly of him. Rest in peace John- you will be missed.

From: Wendy Tobitt
Relation: English relative of Bob Cannon

So sad to read about John Cannon’s untimely death. I’ve read the entries on the rugby club’s Facebook page and see that he was well-loved in Coventry UK, and that some of the students he coached are now playing in New Zealand. So many people across the world shocked and saddened by his passing. Condolences to his family and friends.
