Tom passed away while surrounded by family and friends on February 21, 2022. Thomas Leo Cunningham was born on February 18, 1952, the fifth child of Pat and Agnes Cunningham. He attended Sumner and S-E-M public schools. On December 4, 1971, he married Nancy Jeffery. To that union, three children were born; Amy, Pete and Katie. Tom worked most of his career at Rockwell in Kearney and Orthman’s at Lexington. He was a hard worker and a very skilled welder and finished his career as an Engineer. Tom was blessed with many friends, he was known for being friendly, fun and welcoming. He had so many fun memories with these friends that included high school and college shenanigans, work and hunting buddies, vacations, and most recently going to “work” at Tub’s each morning to play cribbage with the coffee club. Tom was very easy to like and love. He most excelled at being a family man. His unconditional love and support of his children and grandchildren gave them a foundation second to none. The home he and Nancy created was a happy, joyful one that was a refuge to their kids and grandchildren, as well as nieces and nephews. Tom was the biggest fan for his grandchildren. He absolutely loved attending games and performances. He could be a bit biased and bragger of his grandchildren. Tom had a strong Catholic faith that was enhanced by his wife Nancy and passed on to their children and grandchildren. He was a member of St. Patrick’s, St. John Capistran’s and Prince of Peace. He was on parish council and was a care-taker of the St. Patrick’s cemetery.
