Joey, we never met but the things Kyle told me about you. You’d be dang proud of Josh and Carrie! I think about that night and when I got the call often, and so much the last few weeks. You’re loved and missed brother.

Chief Cannon is still very much missed. Living in Conway, I had the opportunity to meet Chief Cannon during the annual highway 65 yard sales. He was an awesome person and really made people comfortable within the community. He is always in my thoughts. I continue to wish his family well and reflect on the many positive impacts that Chief Cannon had across Plummerville and its residents.

You came on duty at 11:00 PM and I got off at 12:00 AM. I met with you about 11:30 and we talked for a bit. The last thing I ever said to you was "Have a safe night and be careful". I went off duty and when I awoke the next morning I got the news. RIP Joey.

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
GOD Bless

I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Joey and knowing his family. All great people. You couldn't ask for a better partner or back up in times of need. This day still shakes our community to the bone as we lost not only "one of our own" but one of the finest officer's you'd ever find. The fact that Josh is following in his dad's footsteps is tremendous and makes me feel a lot safer. Thank you Joey, Rest in Peace dear friend.

My thoughts are with all of your loved ones today. Continue to keep watch over all of them, especially those grand kids. Protect them and keep them on the right path in life. You are a true hero and will never be forgotten.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 3rd anniversary year of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace.

I pray for the solace of all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Thanks to your family and friends for sharing their devotion to you through their reflections.

Officer Cannon you do not know me but I know you. Your brothers and sisters in uniform talk about you often and with absolute admiration. I am very proud to be associated with an organization that you personally help train to "serve and protect" the local community.

It's Police Week again, and almost the 3rd anniversary of you leaving us, and I find myself thinking of you and feeling the urge to reach out. You are thought of often, and you're missed more than words can explain. You're never forgotten - your name engraved not just on memorials, but our hearts. RIP, brother.

Four more officers were killed today in Washington State and I instinctively thought of you first. I'm not ashamed to say that it brought a tear to my eye to think of how someone's husband, father, mother, wife, sister, brother, and friend won't be coming home tonight because they were doing such a thankless job: protecting others. I think of you everyday still, and people ask me daily what the black metal braclet on my wrist is for. I always tell them, "My friend Joey was shot and killed while protecting others." I love you, brother, and I'll continue to hold a vigil for you as long as there's breath in my body.

TO "ACHIEVE THE HONORABLE" YOU HAVE TO BE: IN THE ARENA "IT IS NOT THE CRITIC WHO COUNTS: NO THE MAN WHO POINTS OUT HOW THE STRONG MAN STUMBLES OR WHERE THE DOER OF DEEDS COULD HAVE DONE BETTER. THE CREDIT BELONGS TO THE MAN WHO IS ACTUALLY IN THE ARENA, WHOSE FACE IS MARRED BY DUST AND SWEAT AND BLOOD, WHO STRIVES VALIANTLY, WHO ERRS AND COMES UP SHORT AGAIN AND AGAIN, BECAUSE THERE IS NO EFFORT WITHOUT ERROR OR SHORTCOMING, BUT WHO KNOWS THE GREAT ENTHUSIASMS, THE GREAT DEVOTIONS, WHO SPENDS HIMSELF FOR A WORTHLY CAUSE; WHO, AT THE BEST, KNOWS, IN THE END, THE TRIUMPH OF HIGH ACHIEVEMENT, AND WHO, AT THE WORST, IF HE FAILS, AT LEAST HE FAILS WHILE DARING GREATLY, SO THAT HIS PLACE SHALL NEVER BE WITH THOSE COLD AND TIMID SOULS WHO KNEW NIETHER VICTORY NOR DEFEAT."

To most people he was officer Cannon but to me he was my most handsome brother or just plan ole joe joe. It is unfortunate that most of the people who have written did not know him personally but he was a wonderful person and through all this I have a greater respect for all officers in what they do for us citizens. Joe was a good officer, brother and dad and we were blessed to have him for a short time but will get to see him again and thats what gets me through the hard days. As a added note I would like to say thank you to all those that have sent their condolences.
