Terry J. Cunningham passed away on Monday, January 6, 2020 at the age of 67. He was the son of the late Ira A. Cunningham Sr. and the late Theresa Del Rio Mayeau Cunningham. Terry had three brothers, Bruce A. Cunningham, Gary J. Cunningham, and Ira Cunningham Jr. He was the loving father of Zachary F. Cunningham and is further survived by many nieces and nephews. Terry was born in New Orleans and spent the remainder of his life there and in the surrounding areas. He had many passions, the most of which was fishing in many of Louisiana’s best spots, eating beignets, spending time with family. Terry was always known as the life of the party and never failed to make you laugh or put a smile on your face. He never failed to be there for someone in need and he will be missed deeply by all those who had the pleasure to know him.
