Mr Bertie Cunningham

MR Robert Cunningham, of Irish Street, Killyleagh, who passed away in the Ulster Hospital, aged 92, was a retired painter and decorator.

Mr Cunningham, who was known to his family and many friends as Bertie, had many interests. He enjoyed reading, crosswords and quizzes, raced pigeons and played golf. A keen gardener, he grew flowers, which he liked to show, and also enjoyed socialising with friends.

The funeral service in Mr Cunningham’s home on Wednesday, September 6, was followed by interment in Killyleagh Parish Church churchyard. The Rev Colin Darling officiated.

The sympathy of the community is extended to Mr Cunningham’s wife, Isobel, daughters Jane and Helen, son-in-law Mark, six grandchildren, seven great grandchildren and the wider family circle.

The family would like to express their thanks to everyone who attended to Mr Cunningham’s care and needs, sent cards and attended the funeral.
