Robert T. Cunningham Obituary
Robert Thomas Cunningham, 44, passed away unexpectedly at his home in Plymouth, on Thursday, March 16, 2017. Rob is survived by his wife Jennifer (Lowder) Cunningham, his children Casey Marie and Robert Declan of Plymouth, his parents, Robert and Patricia Cunningham of Abington, Mass., siblings Kathleen Gajewski and Mike of Whitman, Mass., Jennifer Dongarra and Chris of Merrimack, N.H., John Cunningham and Kerry (Sweeney) of Bradford, Mass., brother-in-law Michael Lowder and Tonya of Hopewell, Va. Rob was also loved by many adoring nieces and nephews, John, Alexandra, Ty, Sabrina, Colt, Dylan and Race, many aunts, uncles, a bazillion cousins and countless friends. Rob grew up in Abington. He was a graduate of BC High and became a double eagle when he graduated from Boston College in 1994 with a degree in Political Science. We all thought that and a quarter would buy him a cup of coffee, but it turns out we were wrong. Robs love for politics was undeniable. Whether you were at the dinner table or at the state house with him, Rob always made his opinion known. Rob served on many town committees, finance committees, and local and state campaigns. In 2013, Rob was honored to become the Executive Director of the Massachusetts Republican Party, later going on to become the Director of the Department of Unemployment Assistance for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Robs service and dedication to others didnt end at 5. Rob was proud to be an eagle scout and volunteered much of his time to the Boy Scouts in both Abington and Plymouth. Rob loved life. He enjoyed going to Pats games, traveling with his family and making people laugh whenever he could. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to an account set up for Robs children, The Cunningham Family Fund at Abington Bank, 6 Harrison Ave., PO Box 68, Abington, MA 02351.
