Bruce Douglas Cunningham, 73 passed away in his Polson home on July 18, 2020 after a long and courageous fight with multiple myeloma.

Born in Freeport, New York on July 8, 1947 to Ralph Cunningham and Helen Klimm, he was the eldest brother to Barry, Brian, and Bonnie Cunningham. He spent his childhood traveling around the world with his military family.

Bruce was drafted into the Vietnam War in 1967. While he fought bravely for his country and survived, it was the effects of agent orange that eventually ended his life.

Bruce moved to Montana in the 70s. He was an avid outdoorsman and spent his free time taking full advantage of his outdoor playground. He enjoyed hiking, hunting, rafting and skiing. Bruce spent 30+ years working as a mechanic for the Yellowstone Park Service, before retiring. He often expressed appreciation for the career that allowed him to spend his days in such a wondrous environment.

Everybody that encountered Bruce, knew he could light up a room. It didn’t matter the size or character of his audience, he would have everyone howling with laughter. He touched many lives, and will be remembered as a fun-loving and funny, friend, father and companion.

Bruce is preceded by many and will be welcomed with open arms, and paws, on the other side. He is survived by his wife Tamara, daughter Cara and son Matt Cunningham and Family. His sister Bonnie is now the sole survivor of his nuclear family.

Currently, there are no plans to have a memorial service due to social distancing requirements and concern for everyone's safety. We hope you share your stories of Bruce and celebrate the adventurous, blessed life he lived.

To the family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that God promises to end all suffering. Before long, God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things (will) have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4). May this promise from God give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.
