Harold was born on December 22, 1939 in Poteau, Oklahoma to Leda Mae (Bearden) Cannon and Sherman Cannon and passed away on March 31, 2024 in Eudora, Kansas. He was married to Carol June Cannon on July 25, 1958 in Eudora, Kansas. He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Lloyd Cannon, Jim Cannon, Argus (Shorty) Cannon, and Ralph (Bigun) Cannon; sisters, Ellen Williams, Reba Faye Taylor, and Betty Sue Frear.

Survivors include his wife, Carol June Cannon; daughters, Annette Flory and husband Jim, Julie Bergman and husband Brad; son, Dennis Cannon and wife Brenda; grandchildren, Adam Cannon, Chris Cannon, Jacqui Flory, Leslie Wilson and Ryan, Krystal Noren and husband Jeremy, Jenny Beryman, and Katie Bergman; great grandchildren, Jason Cannon, Wyatt Cannon, Kaydence Flory, Caelyn Jackson, Bridger Wilson, Brody Wilson, and Jaxon Hale; numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and loved ones.

Dean was one of 8 siblings, having 3 sisters, and 4 brothers. Dean's father Sherman worked security and his mother, Leda Mae quite understandably had her hands full. Dean lived in Oklahoma until the 50's where him and his family moved to Eudora, Kansas. What would become a fortunate car accident at age 18, Dean would share a hospital room with a man named Curtis Diedrich, leading him to meeting Diedrich's daughter, June, whom Dean would marry the following year, having 3 children with. After a short stint in Arizona for work, Dean and June would wind up back in Kansas where he began his career working for the University of Kansas. Dean worked for a retired from the University after 45 years, doing maintenance as well as custodian work for Allen Fieldhouse, the home of KU basketball, injecting that love for the Crimson and the Blue into his family. After retirement, Dean and his wife June spent 19 years out at Clinton Lake, working as custodians where they had spent many summers prior.

The shortened definition of mischievous is "causing trouble in a playful way", and that wonderfully sums up Dean Cannon. A man who loved to joke, loved to laugh, and someone you can be assured wanted you to feel comfortable doing the same.

Pallbearers will be Dennis Cannon, Chris Cannon, Brad Bergman, Adam Cannon, Jason Cannon, and Johnny Taylor.
