Thomas Cunningham

April 25, 1926 — May 9, 2014

Thomas E. Cunningham was born in Indianapolis, Ind., in 1926, and passed away at age 88 on May 9, 2014. He will be greatly missed in the Crestview Mobile Home Park in Placerville, where he lived for more than 14 years.

Tom began working at age 12 and learned many useful trades and then he enlisted in the U.S. Navy at age 17. He had many Navy experiences during World War II serving at Okinawa and Iwo Jima. He returned to Indiana and married Peggy Robertson in 1947 and the couple had three children: Carolyn Knepp, Barbara Marrelli and Tom Cunningham. During his life Tom worked at a number of jobs being a construction supervisor in Denver and Evergreen Colorado. He then moved to Sacramento in 1981, where he and his family resided for 10 years.

In 1991, they moved to Crestview Mobile Home Park, where Tom lived until this year. His wife Peggy passed in 2009, and he was an active member at the park all these years. He was much admired for all the work he did in the park, for his loving spirit and helping those in need. His passion was music and musical instruments, particularly guitars and violins. He loved to play the harmonica and spent much time learning to play the keyboard. He will be greatly missed by many people and remembered for his special spirit and concern for others.
