Allan Leroy Cunningham

Published 4-17-13

ENID, Okla. — Funeral service for Allan Cunningham, 68, will be 2 p.m. Thursday, April, 18, 2013, at First Baptist Church, Waynoka, with Rev. David Shaw and Gene Goeben officiating. Interment is in Waynoka Municipal Cemetery under the direction of Marshall Funeral Home, Waynoka.

Allan Leroy Cunningham, son of the late Franklin and Emmie (Taylor) Cunningham, was born March 21, 1944, in Waynoka, Okla., and passed away Sunday, April 14, 2013, in Enid, Okla.

Allan attended school in Waynoka. He served two years with the United States Army in Vietnam.

On Feb. 24, 1969, he was united in marriage to Barbara McCray in Cherokee. To this union, five children were born: Esther, Troy, Tommy, Trenton and Todd.

He was a boilermaker. They made their home in Waynoka, and then North Dakota. After retiring, they settled in rural Waynoka.

The Lord was the true love of Allan’s life, followed by his wife, Barbara, his children and grandchildren. Allan never met a stranger and he shared the love of his Lord with everyone he talked to and finished every conversation with a very heartfelt “God bless you.” He also loved to dance and ride horses as well as fishing and hunting. While living in North Dakota, he made several trips back to Waynoka to hunt rattlesnakes.

Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by an infant daughter, Esther; two brothers, Lawrence and Frankie Cunningham; and four sisters, Florine Cunningham, Maxine Cell, Leona Brown and Cordelia Bradford; and a brother-in-law and wife, Alvin and Joyce McCray.

Allan is survived by his wife, Barbara of rural Waynoka; four sons, Troy Cunningham and wife Jennifer of Taloga, Tommy Cunningham and wife Pam of Enid, Trenton Cunningham and wife Becci of Mandan, N.D., and Todd Cunningham and wife McKenzi of rural Waynoka; one brother, Ivan Cunningham and wife Janie of Waynoka; one sister, Dorine Bowker and husband Chuck of Beaver; 18 grandchildren, great-grandchild, many nieces and nephews, other relatives and friends.
