FRANKLIN – Wayne Roger Cunningham, born on June 4, 1945, to Ralph and Maggie Elliott Cunningham, went to be with our precious and gracious Lord, on May 7, 2020.
A veteran of both Vietnam and Desert Storm, Wayne served honorably as a member of the Army and the Army National Guard for a total of 33 years.
Wayne loved and attended Mountain Grove Baptist Church. He had a wonderful sense of humor and enjoyed gatherings with family and friends. Wayne was one of several who founded the good ol’ boys at the local Franklin Flea Market. They would gather regularly swapping tales about old times, war stories and undoubtedly, getting into mischief on occasion.
Wayne was predeceased by his parents; his siblings, Ruth “Jo” Blanton and Woodrow Cunningham; and a granddaughter, Krysten Cunningham.
Surviving is his wife of 53 years, Judy Cochran Cunningham; their two sons, Boyce Wayne Cunningham (Kim) and Randy Lynn Cunningham (Sandy); and their two granddaughters, Jennifer Cunningham and Kamryn Cunningham. Two siblings, Ray “Buddy” Cunningham and Louise Dills, also survive along with several nieces and nephews.
Dennis Hall and Burt Crawford will officiate at a private graveside service.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to: Mountain Grove Cemetery Fund, c/o Jackson Tolbert 465 Blackburn Branch Franklin, NC 28734.
