CUNNINGHAM, (Bud) Bernard Donald
November 16, 1930 - October 5, 2017
Bud’s weary body came to rest peacefully on Thursday, October 5, 2017 at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Hamilton, in his 87th year.
Survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Mary Lou (Baillargeon), daughters, Beverly (Lloyd Roseboom) and Kathi (David Karpinski) and grandchildren, Renee (Kevin Naukatsik),Traci (Eric Van Camp), Emily (Ian Vann), Gregory Roseboom (Carlie Smith), Eric Karpinski, Rebekkah Karpinski, and Ellyanna Roseboom.
Also, two great-granddaughters, Amariah and Annica Naukatsik and his brother Robert.
Predeceased by his sisters, Donna Bennett and Betty Cardullo.
Along with their farm, “Rapid Oaks Shorthorns”, Bud enjoyed a long career at the Hamilton Psychiatric Hospital.
Upon his retirement from both the farm and the hospital, his woodworking hobby flourished, and we have several treasured pieces of his work to remember him by.
Bud was a longtime director of the Caledonia Fair.
In keeping with his wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family celebration of life will be held at a later date.
If you wish, memorial donations may be directed to the Salvation Army, in Bud’s honour.
Our heartfelt thanks to the hospital staff for all of their compassionate care.
