Obituary: Reginald Andrew Cunningham, 82

Reginald Andrew Cunningham, of Norwalk, died peacefully on Sunday, Jan. 17, 2016 at the age of 82. He was the husband of Josephine (Lodato) Cunningham for more than 58 years. Born in Stamford, the only son of the late Andrew Hay and Jeanie (Milloy) Cunningham, he served in the U.S. Army in Korea, worked as a printer, and eventually retired from United House Wrecking.

He was a very active member of St. Philip's Church, where he served as an usher and was a member of the Men’s Society. He was active with the Scottish Games. Above all, he cherished time spent with family and loved attending his grandchildren's sporting events and activities — all of them will remember him fondly as their biggest fan.

He is survived by his wife Josephine, their four children: Andy (Adrienne) Cunningham of Wilton, Rich (Barbara) Cunningham, Debbie (Bryan) Roddy, and Brian (Theresa) Cunningham, and 13 grandchildren: Amanda, Jessica, Megan, Ryan, Michael, Matthew, Carly, Emily, John, Sarah, Christopher, Julia, and Brianna, as well as numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.

His family will receive friends on Wednesday, Jan. 20, from 4 to 8 p.m. at Magner Funeral Home, 12 Mott Avenue, Norwalk.  A mass of Christian burial will be held on Thursday at 10:30 a.m. at Saint Philip Church, Norwalk. Burial with military honors will follow at St. John Cemetery, Norwalk.
