Although there has been no confirmation of his health concerns or any other suggestive evidence that support the presumption of his health problems and troubles.
We’re awaiting confirmation from his family as to the reason for his death, as well as details on his obituary and memorial ceremonies.
Judge Michael Kanne And His Wife, Judith Ann
Michael Kanne’s wife, Judith Ann Kanne, a retired educator, was by his side when he took his final breath. The fact that she was witnessing the death of her life’s love might have made the situation more painful for her.
Moreover, the couple looks to have spent decades of their lives contentedly and quietly together.
Although there is no confirmed information concerning Judith and Michael’s wedding date or how the pair met for the first time, we can presume they have been together for over two-three decades.
Judith and her daughter have also received a deluge of prayers and sympathies during this trying period. We wish the Kanne family the fortitude to cope with such a tragic loss.
