Cannon Cartier

Cannon William Cartier, beloved 21-year-old son of Shannon and Curt Cartier, died unexpectedly on April 27, 2021 in Westminster, Colorado. 

He was born in Pasco, Washington January 24, 2000 and lived in the Tri-Cities until September 2020 when he relocated to the Denver area. At the time of his death, he worked as a technician at Primus Aerospace, where his coworkers became valued friends and roommates.

Cannon loved Colorado and spent his free time hiking and exploring his new city with his friends and girlfriend, Rose. He enjoyed his job and was good at it, bought his first vehicle, and was proud of being on his own for the first time.  

Cannon enjoyed celebrating his 21st birthday in January in Colorado with his mom over a three-day weekend. He shared some favorite spots: downtown Boulder, Estes Park, the highways through the Rockies, and several restaurants in downtown Denver known for their green chile dishes. 


Besides his parents, Cannon is survived by younger sister Cate Cartier of Richland; grandmother Carol Cartier of Kennewick; Uncle Kyle and Aunt Julia Cartier of Orlando, Florida; Uncle Matt and Aunt Lynette Cartier of Orlando; cousins Nolan, Nathan, Austin, Will, and Jordan Cartier of Orlando; Great Aunt Gay Edwards of Spokane; Great Aunt Diana Harter of Henderson, Nevada; and his beloved pitbull, Bella. 

Cannon was preceded in death by his grandmother, Patricia Edwards, and his grandfathers, Richard Edwards and Urgel Cartier.

Cannon had a huge heart for animals and found great comfort in their presence. Contributions in Cannon’s honor may be made to the Benton-Franklin Humane Society or Forgotten Dogs Rescue (find them on Facebook), an organization that focuses on finding loving homes for pitbulls. 

A private graveside service is May 20 at Einan’s at Sunset. A celebration of life for those who wish to show support for the family is May 21 at 4:00, 6720 W. Park St., Pasco. 

A memorial bench is being placed at Columbia Point in June in front of the Courtyard Marriott. We hope you’ll find it, take a break, and look out at the water while remembering our son.

  • This blog is definitely rather handy since I’m at the moment creating an internet floral website – although I am only starting out therefore it’s really fairly small, nothing like this site. Can link to a few of the posts here as they are quite. Thanks much. Zoey Olsen
