Caree Wanya “Ree-Ree” Cannon departed this life Wednesday, July 28, 2021 at the age of 24, due to a senseless act of violence. He was born and raised in Elyria, OH and attended the Elyria school system. He was strong, bold, brave, protective and loved spending time with his family & friends. He was also a devoted father, brother, son, nephew, cousin and friend. Caree loved playing basketball, listening to music, riding motorcycles and was a member of a local dart team. In 2015 he was baptized and accepted Christ as his personal savior.
Whether it was his authenticity, fun-loving personality, stylish confidence or his deep dimpled smile, Caree left a lasting impression on everyone that entered his life. He left this earth too early for us to understand, and his beautiful soul will never be forgotten. He will remain loved and respected by all who knew him.
