Was so sorry to hear of the passing of Bob. I made several trips to Denver with him and worked with him at T-Creek in Idaho. He was quite a sports fan and loved to talk sports. My thoughts and prayers are with Sally and family.

Bob was an inspiration to me when we both worked at Cyprus Bagdad. He was an honest leader with a great sense of humor and always treated everyone as though they were special. His love for his family was obvious in all of his conversations. I hope all of you are comforted in knowing he left a great legacy.

To the Family of Bob Cunningham,
I only knew Bob when he would come into the grocery store there in Bagdad. You are in my thoughts and prayers. May you find comfort in knowing that he is with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
