Thomas N. Cunningham, age 56, of Clarksville, passed away Saturday, April 6, 2019, at St. Thomas West Hospital.
Tom was born November 25, 1962, at Fort Campbell, KY, to the late Elijah W. Cunningham IV and Irmela deHaas Cunningham.
Tom is survived by his wife, Tammy Harrison Cunningham; their four children, Matthew Thomas Cunningham (28), Wesley Scott Cunningham (26), Nicholas Harrison Cunningham (24), and Katherine Elise Cunningham (21), all of Clarksville; three brothers, Elijah W. Cunningham V of Little Rock, AR, Peter Cunningham of Murfreesboro, TN, and Andrew Cunningham of Jacksonville, FL; father-in-law, Earl Harrison; and mother-in-law, Mary Elise Harrison.
Tom was an entrepreneur, business person, and developer, but more than anything, a loving Husband and Father. The joy of his life was not in his profession, but was in watching, supporting, and loving his wife and children. Tom had contagious energy for life, quiet compassion for others, and excitement for his lifelong home of Clarksville. He was a member of Madison Street United Methodist Church.
