Eddie Otto Cunningham went to be with our Lord and Savior on Saturday, February 19th, 2022, in Amarillo, Texas. He was 78 years young. He was born on February 22, 1943, to two wonderful parents who preceded him in death, O. Christine H. Dunigan and Eddie N. Cunningham.
Eddie was a US Army Vietnam-era Veteran and received the Marksmanship Qualification Badge as a sharpshooter (rifle). He had many other endeavors as an entertainer, storyteller, musician, songwriter, occupational therapist assistant, truck driver, bus driver, pizza driver, and Uber driver. He was a hard-working man.
He is survived by his children Geneva Cunningham, Brad Brown and wife Lara, Lesli Averett and husband Reese; his sister, Patsy Vaughn; niece, Ronna Baird and husband Blake; nephew, Mark Vaughn and wife Sandy; eight grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. In addition, he leaves behind many other wonderful family members and friends. His remains will be buried at a later date with military honors at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery in Killeen Texas. Our loss is Heaven’s gain.
