It is with great sadness the family of Clarence David “Ted” Cunningham announces his passing Thursday, July 11, 2002 at the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg, Man.
Ted was born in Fort Frances, Ont. on July 30, 1924 to the late Earl and Margaret Cunningham. He lived here all his life, except for the years he served in the R.C.A.F. during WW II.
After returning from the service, he continued his career as a papermaker with the Ontario-Minnesota Pulp & Paper Co. Ltd., where he worked for about 40 years, retiring in 1983.
He was united in marriage to the former Doris Wenberg on June 14, 1946 and they enjoyed 56 years together.
He was a member of Royal Canadian Legion Br. #29, Kitchen Creek Golf Club, and the Fort Frances Curling Club. He also was an avid gardener and flowers were his specialty.
He is survived by his wife, Doris; sister, Doreen (Larry) Buffington; brother, Deane (June); sister-in-law, Joyce Cunningham, all of Fort Frances, Ont.; brothers-in-law, Clayton Wenberg and family of Toledo, Ohio, and Richard (Marilyn) Wenberg of Harlingen, Texas; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
He was predeceased by his infant daughter, Sandra Lynn in 1959; parents, Earl and Margaret Cunningham; two brothers, Wesley and Donald; and his father-in-law and mother-in-law, Ben and Inga Wenberg.
Ted was a kind and generous man and will be greatly missed by his wife, Doris, his family, and his friends.
