John Nicholas “Nick” Cannon, age 30, of Oak City, passed away on April 26, 2021 at the Duke University Hospital in Durham, NC.

 

He was born on October 23, 1990 to David and Johnnena Cannon of Oak City.  Nick graduated from Tarboro High School in 2008. He was an excellent athlete excelling in both baseball and football.

Nick was an avid hunter, fisherman and outdoorsman.  He enjoyed working with the kids at the Oak City Recreation Park. Nick was a member of the Oak City Volunteer Fire Department and the Gold Point Church of Christ.  Nick’s favorite quote was from Jim Valvano, “If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that’s a full day.  That’s a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you’re going to have something special. Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up.”

 

Nick was preceded in death by his mother, Johnnena Poulos Cannon and his father, William David Cannon.

 

Nick is survived by Christina T.

I’ve known Nick feels like forever and every time I would see him he would tell me hey with that great big smile!! He always knew how to put a smile and laugh on people’s faces. You’re still putting smiles on faces with the memories you left behind. You may no longer be here physically, you are here in sprit. May you RIP and I’m praying for your precious little boys and the rest of the family. Fly high and keep smiling!!
