Craig Cunningham

Craig Cunningham died suddenly on May 31, 2012 at his home at the age of 78.  Craig was born April 6, 1934 in Glendale, California to Harry and Louise (Ayers) Cunningham.  Craig grew up and lived in southern California, until 1994 when he moved to Norman, Oklahoma.

Craig was a MG Midget race car driver.  He served in the Army from 1954 to 1957, spending much of that time on the island of Taiwan.  Craig loved his work in the electrical business of signs and lighting.  He also owned and operated Old Town Woodworks and a Mail Box Etc., in San Diego, California.  After moving to Oklahoma, he worked at Pitney Bowes until he retired in 2000.  He enjoyed building models, woodworking, clock making, and water skiing, but his passion was fishing.

Craig is preceded in death by his parents.  Survivors include his most beloved wife, Shirley Cunningham; his daughters, Kim (Tony) Russon of Northridge, CA., Darby Cunningham of West Covina, CA., and Lisa (Bryan) Blank of Poway, CA; and step-son, Alan McFarland of Grandview, Missouri; and six grandchildren.

Craig was a very good friend of mine while we attended Huntington School, South Pas Jr. High, and South Pas Senior High.  He was my "best man" in my wedding in San Marino in 1959.  We kept in limited contact throughout the years until he moved to Norman, Oklahoma where his current wife was from.  He didn't feel very good for such a long period of time, which was of course,  upsetting to me.  I am quite sure he's feeling better now.  I'll miss Craig a great deal!
