I have a funny story. I stayed with Peggy and Canell for a short time years ago; when I was in my early 20's. Anyway, whenever Canell and I were ridding in the car or watching television; I would sing ALL the songs to the commercials. Canell would say how in world do you know every song to every commercials. I would tell him, I just got it like that. I felt after a while it started to matter him. But, I just couldn't help myself. Canell would just shake his head and give that cool, calm Canell smile and shake his head. Canell, I have so many memories of you. I will forever love and miss you. Peggy and Angie, blessings, and love to you both. Machelle

I am saddened to hear of the passing of Canell. I send my condolences and prayers to the family. I am a LHS classmate. Canell had this special quality of "making things happen" for the Lincoln High School Class of 1968. He was a true Loyal Tiger and wanted us to enjoy life together with monthly class meetings, summer picnics, Christmas parties (or any holiday celebrations he could put together), and most of all with our class reunions. He put in time and effort! Thank you to Canell's family for sharing him with us. He will be missed! Delores Salter
