1941 – 2016

Larry Glen Cunningham left this earth suddenly on Wednesday, December 28, 2016 at the age of 75 years due to complications with renal and congestive heart failure. Larry is survived by his wife/friend Judy Cunningham; son Joshua (Kelsey) Cunningham; daughters Cindy Byers, Patricia, Mary-Lee Cunningham; step children Theresa Oteng and Tyson (Crystal) Schultz as well as grandchildren Justin, Angela, Jessica, Adwoa, Savaanah, Rachel, Trinity, Aiden, Christopher, Steven and Summer; great grandson Ethan; sister Lillian (Dave) Wallace and numerous other sisters in law; brothers in law; nieces and nephews. Larry was the youngest of seven children to Stanley & Irene Cunningham at Porcupine Plain, Sask. He was predeceased by his parents; sisters Edith, Alice, Dorothy, Effie; brother Arthur; mother and father in law and his infant son Matthew Larry Glen Cunningham. Larry was on his own at a young age due to his parents death and worked numerous jobs throughout his life. When he married 28 years ago, he settled at working at the Co Op feed mill and then went to work for Dave Carlyle doing what he enjoyed – running the farm equipment until he no longer could climb the stairs up into his tractor. Larry also enjoyed camping at what he referred to as “his campground”. Thanks to Dave for letting us clean it out. He enjoyed sitting around the fire with his Walkers Special Old and giving orders. He always sounded like a grumpy old man but if someone was in trouble he was there to help. At Larry’s request, cremation has taken place and there will be no funeral. A private family celebration of Larry’s life will be held in the spring at “his campground”. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the, Canadian Diabetes Association, # 6, 5015 – 48 Ave., Red Deer AB T4N 1S9 or to the Kidney Foundation, 202, 11227 – Jasper Ave., Edmonton AB T5K 0L5.
