William Harvey Cunningham
(13 Nov 1932 - 20 Feb 2013)

Newport News High School Class of 1950

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
 
 There is more sad news today.    Bill Cunningham, Class of 1950, passed away peacefully at his home in Hampton on Wednesday, February 20, 2013 at the age of 80. 


From the Daily Press - 02/23/13:

           William H. Cunningham
   

 

 
    HAMPTON - William Harvey "Bill" Cunningham, 80, resident of Hampton, passed away peacefully at his home on Wednesday, February 20, 2013.

He was born in Lynchburg, Virginia, on November 13, 1932, the son of Frank C. and Mariam H. Cunningham. He was a Peninsula resident for over 65 years. Bill graduated from Newport News High School in 1950. After serving in the United States Army, as military police man for two years, he worked at AMOCO Oil Refinery and retired after thirty years of service.

Bill, known to his loved ones as "Pop," was a man of God, a proud patriot and a loyal Redskins' fan. He spent his life helping and serving others: providing relief for Storm victims, feeding the homeless, a driver for Meals-On-Wheels, and working with "Nights' Welcome" with his church, Northampton Presbyterian Church, where he was a faithful member for over fifty years. He was always there to lend a helping hand and a beautiful smile to whomever he met.

My deepest sympathy to Pop's family. He is in Heaven with God and the Angels. Thanks, Kathy, for taking such great care of Pop.

My sincere sympathy to the Cunningham family, I had been cleaning Bill's teeth. He is one of my very favorite patients. I have four children and Bill would always remember each of them and ask about them every time he came in. I will miss his kindness and big heart!

It Is Well with My Soul

Words by Horatio G. Spafford, 1873
Music by Philip P. Bliss, 1876


When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well with my soul.
It is well with my soul,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, tho' trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.
It is well with my soul,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

My sin—oh, the bliss of this glorious tho't:
My sin, not in part, but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!
It is well with my soul,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

And, Lord, haste the day when the faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll,
The trump shall resound and the Lord shall descend,
"Even so" it is well with my soul.
It is well with my soul,
It is well, it is well with my soul.
