Margie and Buck Cannon

Buck Cannon’s family left a legacy gift in memory of Mr. Cannon. Pictured are Margie and Buck Cannon.

Charles “Buck” Cannon passed away in June 2011. He was a dedicated Christian and active, lifetime member of Abbeville United Methodist Church. He was a farmer in Abbeville with a Mechanical Engineering degree from Georgia Tech. Mr. Cannon is described as an outgoing person, friendly, and one who enjoyed people. He was a generous man and wanted to help people. He valued hard work and education. Maybe that is why he gave bigheartedly every year to The Methodist Home’s Workday.

Mr. Cannon’s wife, Margie, and his children, James Oscar Cannon and Ellen Cannon Mizio, decided to honor his memory with a generous donation to The Methodist Home. Mrs. Cannon said, “He would want the money given to The Methodist Home.”

The gift will create a legacy of helping kids working hard to overcome their circumstances. It’s an amazing way to honor the memory of a loved one. If you would like to learn more about making a generous gift in memorial of a loved one, please contact Alison Evans at 478-751-2800.
