Harold D. Cunningham Jr.,
74, of Bruceton Mills, WV, passed away peacefully at home on December 3, 2022, with his children by his side.
The son of the late Harold A. and Dorothy McDonald Cunningham, he was born on January 3, 1948, in Morgantown, WV.
After graduating from Bruceton High School in 1966, he joined the U.S. Navy (SeaBee’s) and served two tours in Vietnam. After his military service, he worked for Heart Homes, Sterling Faucet and then for GE Plastics for many years after which he retired.
Harold was a member of the Hopewell Union Church. Hunting, fishing, softball and baseball were among the few of his many passions in life. If you were a friend of Harold, you knew not to turn your back because a prank was coming, or he would bet you $100.00 that he was right about something. He spent many hours telling stories with his friends at Little Sandy’s and the Pfost Office.
Harold is survived by his two sons: Andrew Cunningham and his wife, Carrie, and Lucas Cunningham and his companion, Katrina Savage; four grandchildren: Casper, Cole, Makayla and Levi Cunningham; a brother and his wife, Rich and Terrie Cunningham; two sisters: Lois Bolyard and Sharon Shaffer and her husband, Steve; his nephews, with whom he enjoyed many hours of fishing and hunting; and several great nephew and nieces.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother and his wife, Robert (Bob) Cunningham and Lynn, and a brother-in-law: Delmus Bolyard.

Spear Funeral Home, in Brandonville-Bruceton Mills, WV, from 1:00 pm until the 6:00 pm funeral service, on Wednesday, December 7, 2022, with Pastor Dave Curry officiating.
