Posted on 05-11-2007

Dennis Cunningham from the 1983 NSD YearbookThe NSDAA were notified that Dennis J. Cunningham passed away last week at the age of 43 while sleeping in his cabin room on the Deaf Freedom Cruise where the other 3,800 plus deaf people cruised out on the Caribbean Sea.  We also were told that his body will be arrived in Omaha today or tomorrow from the ship in Miami.  We sure hope we will find out more details in the near future.  If you know more than we do, please share with us.

His funeral is pending for this coming weekend, November 9-11, 2007, at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church.  If you want to check for the latest information with the date of his funeral service can be viewed at Heafey Heafey Hoffmann Dworak & Cutler West Center Chapel.

He entered NSD in the fall of 1969 until his graduation in 1983.
