Robert D. Cunnington, 53, of Merrimack, New Hampshire passed away unexpectedly on December 26th, 2017. He was born on February 16th, 1964 in Chelmsford, and was a graduate of Chelmsford High School and Merrimack College. He went on to own his own business, Merrill Sales Group, in which he took great pride.
Bob had the biggest, most passionate heart of gold anyone had witnessed. He lived and died by his Bruins, the Boston Herald and bombarding his family with funny pictures of their cats. He cherished his memories of vacations and Van Halen concerts with his friends and family. He was known for his fiercely Republican views, and loved to debate politics at every family gathering. Bob was the patriarch of the Cunnington family and a shoulder to lean on in trying times. He loved his wife, daughters, sisters, nieces, nephews, in-laws, cousins, aunts and uncles more than anything on this earth, and was constantly boasting about their accomplishments to anyone or anything that would listen.
Bob is predeceased by his beloved parents, Robert and Lillian Cunnington, and his best friend, Henry the cat. He is survived by his wife, Susan Cunnington, and his daughters, Stacey and Stephanie Cunnington, his three sisters, Lynne Tyros, CeeCee Connell, and Janet Cunnington, his honorary brother, John Tyros, sister-in-law, Julie Brennan, brother-in-law, Mike Connell, his niece, Meredith Tyros, and his nephews, Steven and AJ Connell, Evan Tyros and Jake Brennan.
