Walter Thomas Cannon of Sunset valley died in the Holy Rosary hospital in Ontario Wednesday morning of a heart Attack. He has been ill for several months.
Walter Cannon was born February 20, 1886 at Indianapolis, Indiana and moved to Wenatchee, WA at a young age. He has lived in Malad, Pocatello, Buhl and Nyssa, Idaho. His last move was to Sunset Valley in 1937, where he bought 40 acres for $350 and made his present farm "out of the sagebrush," after the dam was put in and better irrigation was available. Walter met his wife, Ruth, in a lumber camp in Idaho. They married on November 8, 1913.

Interment will be in the Owyhee cemetery beside the body of Mrs. Ruth Cannon, who died April 7, 1947.
