Born July 8, 1943 in Franklin, PA, he was the son of the late William C. Cunningham and Bessie (Lowrie) Cunningham.

An avid outdoorsman, William loved to fish and hunt, mow the grass in his yard, and painting as he was a former Union Painter for Atlas Paining company. In his spare time, he could be found spending time with his loving dog, George.

William attended the Grace Community Bible Fellowship Church in Polk, PA.

Cunningham-Grassmyer of Franklin, and Nicole Cunningham Byham and her husband, Matthew of Lucinda; his seven grandchildren, Beau Feltenberger of Franklin, Stevie Leigh Goldinger of DuBois, Alexis Clark and Courtney Clark of Cooperstown, Zoey M. Byham, Wyatt M. Byham, and Waylon M. Byham of Lucinda; as well as a special nephew, Paul Ghering, Jr. of Oil City.

In addition to his parents, William is preceded in death by his brother, Joseph Cunningham; and two sisters, Alice Card and Patricia Tarr.

A Celebration of William’s Life will be private and held at the convenience of the family.
