John H. “Jack” Cunningham
Of Arlington Heights  

John H. “Jack” Cunningham was born February 21, 1936 in Butte, Montana to John Ellis and Florence Eva (nee Bourett) Cunningham.  He died surrounded by his family on December 05, 2017 at the Lutheran Home in Arlington Heights.  

Jack grew up in Portland Oregon.  While working at the Montgomery Ward Catalog house, he was recruited to the Chicago Home office to begin a buyer’s training program.  During his 33-year career, he rose to the position of National Merchandise Sales Manager.  After retirement, Jack joined the Low Vision Group of Wheeling Township and served as a commissioner for the Village of Arlington Heights Disability Commission.  Jack and his guide dog Kaplan also made many presentations about blindness and living with a disability to civic organizations and schools leading to recognition from Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart.   

Jack is survived by his wife Jeani (nee Giblin) Cunningham; his daughters JoAnna Louise Cunningham and Julia Jean (Stephen) Petros; his grandchildren Adilyn and Elena Petros and Jackson Butler. 

Jack is preceded in death by his brother William E. Cunningham and by his parents.
