Larry Gene Cunningham
03/25/1939 - 12/14/2012


Larry Gene Cunningham, Clyde Ohio left this earth on December 14, 2012 but because of his joking ways & funny nature will remain in the hearts of all those that knew him. Larry brought to Ohio with him fond memories of Heron Lake Minnesota (where he would want you to know he walked up hill barefooted to school in the snow which was sometimes as high as the telephone poles) he shared many happy childhood memories with his family about his friends and his family had the pleasure of meeting on several family vacations to his beloved home town. Larry graduated from Heron Lake High School in 1957. To this day he remains friends with many in his hometown.
After wreaking havoc on Heron Lake for a little while after graduation, he served his country by joining the United States Coast Guard 1957-1961, where he was stationed on the New England coast therefore giving him a love for seafood and cooking. His dedication to the USCG remains today flying his flag proudly from his flag pole. "Red at night, Sailors delight. Red in the morning, Sailors take warning", is a saying we remember.
After his service, Larry relocated to Ohio, working at Peter Eckrich for 20 years until its closing in 1988. Larry held various positions within the City of Clyde where he retired from in 2002. Larry enjoyed his time with the city because it gave him an opportunity to meet many people and we all know Larry loved to talk. An avid dog lover, he would have many stories about all the friendly dogs in town in which he enjoyed throwing balls for.
Larry was born March 25 1939, He is survived by his wife who has been by his side to care for him since April, Mary Cunningham (Mary Lou Rodriguez) his children, Kimberly Kay Ludwig, Gibsonburg, Laurie Ann Cunningham, Fremont, Victoria Jo (Todd) Schmitz, Clyde, Chad Dudley (Eliza) Cunningham, Fremont, Connie Colleen (Shane) Wilson, Clyde. His Big Brother, Orrin (Dee) Cunningham, Iowa. 11 Grandchildren, expecting his 6th Great Grandchild and many nieces and nephews along with great nieces and great nephews that many he considered to be like his grandchildren. He has been surrounded through his illness with caring brother & sister in-laws and his 2 grand dogs always brought a smile to his face.
Larry loved baseball and softball coaching many teams in Old Fort, Fort Seneca & Clyde Little League, where he served as past president and all-star coach for many years. During his retirement years his greatest joys were attending his grandchildren’s sporting events faithfully wearing their names and numbers on his t-shirts. Larry was instrumental in introducing a High School Softball program to CHS by getting ground work started for a program that could be implemented by his daughter’s freshman yr. (MM, yaa) one of his greatest joys was escorting his granddaughter to Florida to watch her participate in a USSSA World Series of softball. Larry was a proud member of the Clyde VFW and Clyde Eagles as well. Larry became high-tech when he learned to play his favorite game, solitaire, on the computer where he rekindled his love for poker by figuring out online poker. To his poker friends he was fondly nick-named "50 cents" due to his cheap betting ways.
Larry loved a good debate, a big breakfast, the History Channel, cooking and always a good laugh. His family always enjoyed when he made his vegetable soup because everyone knew they would be given their own container to enjoy. He enjoyed traveling where you could bet he would stop to read the historical road side markers no matter how random. He enjoyed his music and was quite the dancer with some pretty good moves (or so he thought) his goal was always to make people laugh. Being from Minnesota he was a lifelong fan of the Vikings, the Twins and the Minnesota Gophers. During retirement he found a lot of joy in volunteering at Clyde St. Mary’s School where the kids affectionately called him Grandpa Larry.
He loved his family, his sentimental ways loved a good Hallmark commercial and during this time of year he would want everyone to watch National Lampoons Christmas Vacation and have a good hearty laugh when the squirrel is on Clark's back.
Larry would want to personally thank everyone for the care and respect they have shown him since being ill. He would want to thank his home health Staff from Firelands Home Health; the staff he had at Elmwood and most recently the outstanding staff at The Willows; Clyde PD; Sandusky County EMS & Life Flight Mobile; The Entire Bellevue Hospital staff, especially Respiratory Dept., Phlebotomy and Nursing; Buckeye Medical Center and Doctor Hoy whom he respected tremendously. Stein Hospice for making his loved ones comfortable his last hours.
His parents, Sophia and Dudley Cunningham, Brothers,Merritt and Thurlow, Father In-law Enrique Rodriguez, son in-law, Rob Ludwig, and many good friends will be greeting Larry ready for the party to begin.
Larry’s life will be celebrated at Auxter Funeral Home Tuesday, December 18, 2012, 2-4 & 6-8pm With a Memorial Service held at Clyde St. Mary’s Church on Wednesday December 19, 2012 at 10:30am with Military burial at McPherson Cemetery following.
Memorials may be made to St. Mary’s Church, March of Dimes and The Clyde Food Pantry.
Larry would like to leave you with a very special loving“wink” and with the question; do you know the difference between a sea lion and a seal?... Read more

My sincere condolences to Mary and family during this time of sorrow, at times like these we can draw comfort from the Holy Scriptures. God knows the pain that you are going through and soon he will do something about it. At Revlation 21:3, 4 we are promised that all our tears wil be wiped away when death and pain is eliminated. God at John 5:28, 29 promises that there will be a future "resurrection" back to life. Jesus said, "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." Until thse promises are fulfiled may you draw close to God because hecares for you.

Our deepest simpathy is with you.I first met Bob back in the 60's when he would stop at my dealership Mac's Outboard in Sandusky to buy parts to fix a stray mercury outboard or two.Our business relationship continued as my family started to make long shaft kits for Mercury & OMC motors.and he and his trusted associate Mary Ellen would stop in at our Boat Show booth in Chicago.It was always great to hear his take on the politicos and all of it true.The last time I was in the dealership not long b4 he closed, the air was still a slight shade of blue , and we all loved him for it. pure Bob. and mechanic speak. In all those years, I never knew we had the same birthday 12/27. I wish I.d known he was going to close up shop,which I learned from the tractor poeple after he had moved out.I would have loved to buy him a beer .A great guy I will miss seeing once in a while with a lovely wife to boot.God Bless his family and you Mary Ellen.

I still can picture Bob scrambling up a huge ladder to the top of his boat shop just a few years ago when he was in his mid 80's. What a hard working man. I think his heaven on earth was time spent boating, fishing and being with his family and friends. Sending our condolences. Bill & Ruth
