Gary Leon Cunningham, 78, of New Boston, passed away Saturday, May 8, 2021, at Southern Ohio Medical Center.
Born October 6, 1942, in New Boston, Ohio to Raymond Mowery and Juanita Cunningham, Gary is survived by a daughter Wendy Hoewischer, his friends and loved ones, Cedar Street Church family, and his constant companion and furry friend, Angel. In addition to his parents, a son, Timothy L. Cunningham preceded him in death.
Gary loved the United States of America and was a proud United States Air Force veteran and often talked about his time serving in West Germany in the 1960s. After his retirement from Chrysler Corporation, Gary left the Dayton area and returned home to New Boston.
