John Norman Cunningham

John Cunningham peacefully passed away at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice after a short illness.  Loved ones were by his side, as well as the wonderful support staff at hospice.

John leaves to mourn his passing, his wife, Jeannie; sons, Fred (Lynda), Brian (Michele) and Jeannie’s son Kelly (Dev); and daughter, Tracey (Mike).  He is survived by six grandchildren, two great grandsons, five siblings and extended step family.  Special thanks to John’s brother, Bob, for all his support over the past weeks. 

John touched many lives in his lifetime as a heavy equipment operator, window cleaner, city transit driver and trucker.

He retired in Turtle Valley 20 years ago where he enjoyed life on the farm.  Many fun times were spent camping, travelling and enjoying hot dog nights around a campfire at the farm.

John, who was predeceased by two daughters, Wendy and Denise, and stepson, Rusty; will be very sadly missed by all who knew him.  A hard working man, he leaves a large hole in all our hearts!  We’ll miss his stories, humour and loving ways! 

Thanks to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice staff, Dr. Heunis and Dr. Sze.

A celebration of life was held at Chase Creekside Senior Centre on Sunday, March 20.
