March 15, 1958 - January 3, 2020
Burl Richard Cunningham Jr., 61, parted from this earthly life on January 3, 2020. Those who passed on before him include his father Burl Richard Cunningham Sr., his sister Brenda J VanHoy and his brother Fredrick Scott Cunningham. The family that remains are his wife Shawn (Selby) Cunningham, his mother Brilla Joyce (McCloud) Cunningham, children; Miranda Spring Jackson, Meika Silver Cunningham, Malina Starr Cunningham, Marrie Sun Edgerton, Sarah Ashley (Englehardt) Tucker, and Spencer Andrew Englehardt. Along with a horde of grandchildren; Jordan Joseph Clinger, Aiyanna Sigman, Lucas Sigman, Sage Cunningham, Richard Etherington, Lucien Lawrence, Forrest Cunningham, Jaxper Cunningham, Stormie Edgerton, Hazel Edgerton, and one more that is still forming in utero. There is a quote hanging up in his kitchen that says, “The love of a family is life’s greatest blessing.” Richard was beyond a blessing for anyone who came into contact with him, not just family and friends but to strangers in line at the supermarket as well. He was always eager to lend a helping hand or even just a sympathetic ear. When the world seemed heavy and the burdens of life too much to bear, he was always ready to help ease away some of the burden, no matter how heavy. With his quick wit and charming personality, laughter was never far away. The love and compassion that he possessed was discernable throughout his life. He always had a warm and welcoming hug anytime one was needed. The unconditional love, encouragement and support he provided for so many are irreplaceable. The strength of spirit within him is sure to be recognized by his savior and lord Jesus Christ. The immense void left by his departure is too great to put into words. Saying he will be greatly missed is an understatement. With his passing he is now free from the pain and physical woes that had befallen him during his time on the Earth. The world lost an amazing human, but the universe gained a beautiful soul in the heavens. His memory will forever be treasured by all those who had the honor to have known him in this life. For those left here on earth, he will be waiting with arms wide open when it is our time to cross that divine threshold. A memorial service for Richard is being held Friday, January 10, 2020 at 7:00pm at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints at 2330 County Road 528, Sumterville, FL. In lieu of flowers, donations to the National Kidney Foundation or to the American Diabetes Association would be greatly appreciated.
