We are sad to report the loss of Michael Cunningham. He died peacefully at home on November 19, 2016, surrounded by family members. Michael was born in La Mesa, CA, on March 13, 1941. 

He grew up on the playing fields of La Mesa.  He was a member of the 1957 La Mesa Colt League World Championship Team; and a quarterback and catcher at St. Augustine High School.  He graduated from St. Mary's College in Moraga, CA in 1963 and caught for the Gaels baseball team.  He enjoyed a wonderful career of coaching and teaching at San Marcos, Ramona, St. Augustine and Julian High Schools.

The last 41 years of his life were spent in Ramona with his wife Linda, and he could often be found golfing at San Vicente golf course.  His family, friends, teammates and students will miss his sense of humor and camaraderie.  He is survived by his wife Linda; daughter, Shelley; granddaughters Elise Watts and Chelcie Miller; sisters Kathleen, Susie and Christine; brother, Jimmy; and many cousins, nieces and nephews.  He was sadly preceded in death by his sons Sam and Pete.

Memorial services will be held on Tuesday, November 29, 2016 at 10am at St. Martin's Catholic Church, 7710 El Cajon Blvd., La Mesa, CA 91942.  A reception will follow the service.
