John Cannon and his staff were professional and caring, they treated us like family.
I appreciated his advise not to make rush decision but to think about what I wanted for my husband's service and burial. John delivered my husbands remains to my home knowing how difficult it would be for me to return to the funeral home. John took care of arrangements for Mother and Father in-Law and my Mother. Why would I go any where else.

Please accept my deepest sympathy on the loss of your Mother! I’m so sorry ! 💔
I met your Mom when I was working at Alice’s Beauty Salon in Cohoes.....then she followed me to Waterford where I had my own Salon ! Your Mom was here every Friday morning to have her beautiful red hair done in her favorite updo ....along with many of my Friday regulars ! We shared a lot of laughs & chatter from all .... it was always a joy to see her every week ! She was a stunning lady , always dressed to the nines, a beautiful lady inside & out ,great golfer & an amazing friend! 💕 I missed her when she left Latham, but she will always remain in my precious memories ! Loved are close friendship ! May she finally RIP, my thoughts and prays are with all of you!
Till we meet again Nancy ! 😥 Love your friend Barb🥀😘

Thank so much for being the calming voice in our time of need! While we were only having a direct cremation as our family lives on Long Island, but Mom passed in Albany, words cannot explain what a wonderful person you are. You made this difficult process easy to understand. You gave us your cell phone number to call with any questions and you even called us to see how we were doing. Our only regret is that you are not located on Long Island, as Cannon Funeral Home would have been the perfect setting to say goodbye to Mom. The world needs more John Cannon's in it!
Many Thanks from the bottom of our hearts....

John & staff,
On behalf of our family we want to tell you how wonderful our Mom's service and mass ceremony was recently. Every single thing that you did and said would happen was followed perfectly! It started months ago when we met for the pre-arrangements. I hope you realize how comforting your words were which made the process so much easier. Just the little things we asked meant so very much. The added touch of driving around the house struck a cord with so many and commented about it. Many said who does that, "I said John"! We know our mom would say that you did exactly what she wanted. We greatly appreciate your services during this difficult time !

John Cannon is a blessing to this community and all families he has served and will continue to serve. His compassion and knowledge is reassuring in the most difficult times.
I will ONLY use Cannon Funeral Home. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Patti Weissenburger Jensen

Would never use any other funeral home after the thoughtful, kind, compassionate service that John and his staff provided for our family. At 2:30 am I made 2 phone calls from the hospital after my mom passed away. The first call was all business, no compassion and about the payment right up front. What a strange and cold conversation that was and I knew in my gut I couldn't use them and hung up. My second call was to Cannon and when I spoke with John I just knew in his voice this man would take care of us and showed us the compassion you would want for your loved one. I was right, the services from start to finish we're amazing. John took care of every detail and made our experience very special. Thank you John.

John Cannon and his staff are excellent at what they do, he is kind caring and compassionate. He is patient and makes sure everything is handled efficiently and he accommodates all family members especially when they are here from out of town. I have already given his name out for recommendations. So glad we chose him for my Mom’s service.

Patricia Cole

Very nice place and John Cannon was very nice to all of us. Such a good hearted man. Would definitely use them again, just hopefully not for a very long time.

The folks at Cannon are the most caring and efficient and thorough funeral home staff I have ever experienced, especially John Cannon. Our Dad's wake and funeral were flawless and the caring continued even after the final ceremony at the cemetery. Thank you John for making a sad time such a glorious time.

Christine Mastrobuono

John Cannon was wonderful. He was kind and went out of his way to be helpful. We did not have a lot of money to work with, but we were not treated less than at any time. Would never go anywhere else. Will recommend Cannon Funeral very highly. Thank you so much for everything.

John and his team were so helpful and caring guiding our family through a tough time.

Genevieve Dwyer Rainsberg

When my father passed away John couldn’t have been any sweeter. He made me feel very comfortable in such a hard time. He was very thorough, asked a lot of questions and wanted to get to know him even though he was gone. They made my dad look very good, even though he had been very sick you couldn’t tell. John was right there guiding me through the whole time from start to finish. The service was beautiful, well put together. I can’t thank him enough for everything he did for my family in our time of need. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else!

Jamie-Lyn Grugan

Great people, Caring staff. Looking forward to seeing the new building.

Christopher James Runnels

John guided us by the hand with an immaculate manner. Every word was thought out, ever detail was practiced. This team is professional, courteous, and gracious. I cannot recommend them highly enough. This group made a very challenging and difficult time for my family much easier to tolerate, as he gently walked is through every step. His contract is transparent, and his advice is sound. John also managed to help us expedite matters for a rapid funeral and memorial. The facility is touching and beautiful, and I couldn't think of a better way to honor our loved one. If I ever need such funeral services again in the Albany area, I would only use the Cannon funeral home.
