      Thanks for commenting, David. It is always an honor to have descendants of these legendary wrestling figures visiting this site for information on their loved ones.

      I am having some trouble finding much info regarding Tom Cannon’s death, though. I will do some more thorough searching to see if I can come up with anything. If I find it, I’ll post it. Otherwise, I will for sure have more general information on Cannon’s wrestling career and life as I find it.

      Thanks again for stopping by and commenting!
