"LAST REMAINS OF PIONEER FRANK CANNON LAID TO REST
Followed by a large concourse of sorrowing friends, the last remains of the late Frank B. Cannon were laid to rest in the Odd Fellows plot in Anchorage Cemetery on Sunday afternoon. The following acted as pall-bearers: P.O. Sundberg, E.L. Bedell, Capt. N. J. Gaikema, Judge Lindley Green, P. McManaman and Thomas Merideth.
The funeral services were conducted at Pioneer Hall by D.H. Williams, where Mrs. Mabel Clayton sang a sacred solo, accompanied on the piano by Mrs. H.U.M.Higgins. Leopold David, on behalf of the Anchorage Igloo, Pioneers of Alaska, delivering a touching eulogy at the grave, interment being in the Anchorage Cemetery.
In the passing of "Uncle Frank" Cannon, Alaska loses one of its most beloved men, one who was actuated in his many noble acts by spirit of altruism that has built monuments in the hearts of all who knew him. Volumes might be written on his philanthropies, his aid to stranded prospectors and his hospitality while conducting a stopping place at Knik; where the wayfarer was never turned away and where the men who search the hills could always gather and sit around the big box stove and partake of frugal fare and depart to await the time when they were able to pay, and if not, never to be troubled to square the account.
In departing, Mr. Cannon left behind him something more precious than gold—true traditions of the land he loved and served in minor and exalted positions of trust. Mr. Cannon was past noble grand of the I.O.O.F. at Sturgis, South Dakota and the members of the local fraternal order and Pioneers conducted the services jointly."
