John M. Cunningham, 82, formerly of Alfred passed away peacefully Friday (Sept. 7, 2012) at Seager-Bates Home in Hornell following a brief illness.
Mr. Cunningham was born on Aug. 30, 1930 and lived in Allegany County most of his life; most recently in Alfred where the village adopted him and loved him as one of their own.
Johnny loved to walk the streets of Alfred, visiting his friends at the Collegiate, Alfred Pharmacy and Alfred Post Office. He was a faithful member of St. Jude Parish in Alfred where he displayed much of his locally famous artwork. He was a Yankee fan. H
He had a gift for remembering numbers, anniversaries, birthdates and calendars. His simple pleasures included his favorite meal, meatloaf.
Johnny is survived by his many friends at St. Jude and the Alfred community. Among his closest friends are Mike, Peggy, the Quackenbush’s, Deb, Tony, Father Gene, Katie, Theresa at Seager-Bates Home and Dr. Stephen Spink.
Friends are invited for a time of visitation at St. Jude Parish in Alfred on Tuesday from 9:30-11:30 a.m. at which time there will be a Mass of Christian Burial held at 11:30 at the church with Rev. Gene Ulrich of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary as celebrant. Burial will follow in Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Andover.
Arrangements are under the direction of Baker-Swan Funeral Home in Wellsville.
