Obituary for Loudis Canada

Mr. Loudis Canada, known to his family and friends as “Cannon Ball”, passed away Thursday, April 26, 2018, at Covenant Healthcare-Cooper in Saginaw, Michigan, surrounded by the comfort of his family. Age 90 years. He was born on August 10, 1927 to Leathan and Lula Pearl Canada in Camphill, Alabama.

Mr. Canada married Mary Alice Canada on February 9, 1949. His loving wife of 60 years preceded him in death on January 31, 2009. He was a lifelong member of Tabernacle Baptist Church in Saginaw, Michigan until his health failed him. He was a retiree of Chevrolet Grey Iron Plant in Saginaw, Michigan and a member of the local 668 Hall from 1951 to 1980. Loudis was a very caring, loving and cheerful man who loved being around family and friends. He was gifted musically, and played the guitar by ear, in addition to singing in the Gospel Male Chorus at Tabernacle Baptist Church for many years. Cannon Ball was also quite the joker at times, bringing life and laughter constantly to his family and friends. Needless to say, he will be truly missed.

Mr. Canada leaves to cherish his memory four daughters, Rosie (Sampson) Pittman, Kathy Barnett, Hester Lowery, Shirley Jones; two sons, Richard (Tiffany) Lee, John George (Lizzie) Moore; one brother, Redell Canada, Desmond, Iowa; one sister, Carrie Canada; several grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins and a host of friends.

Mr. Canada was preceded in death by his wife, Mary Alice Canada; two daughters, Ethel Dawkins, Lula Pearl Canada; one sister, Lovie Mae; and seven brothers.

The family wishes to express thanks to Mr. Canada’s caregiver, Cathy Burns, for the kindness, compassion and tender loving care she extended to our Dad, and also to Covenant Healthcare for their professionalism and comforting support.
