It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Graeme Cunningham, brother, husband, brother-in-law, uncle and friend. He will be dearly remembered by his wife Monique MacMinn, sister Brenda (Peter) Garnham, nephews Jason Garnham (Robin), David Garnham (Kelsy), great nephews Lochlan and Broderick as well as many friends. Graeme was born in Victoria to parents, James and Margaret Cunningham, who had recently arrived from Scotland.
Graeme loved racquet sports. Squash was his greatest passion where he accomplished several championships in his younger years. Graeme attended St. Michaels University School where he graduated with honors. Graeme worked at Queen’s Printer in the Provincial Government and was the President of the Canadian Diabetic Association for several years.
Graeme’s literary talents expressed themselves by his love of writing poetry and articles where they were printed in various publications throughout his life. Graeme was a loyal and loving man who could light up a room with his disarming smile and infectious laughter. His sense of humour followed him until his last days. (He loved Drama class in school), Graeme will be fondly missed by those whose lives he touched.
Memories: Forever in our heart
A Poem for Graeme
With all my heart I did love
And with this love my heart did break
We shared our lives our souls forsake
My parting words for you to hear
Is that my love is always near
Condolences may be offered to the family below.
