It’s with heartfelt sadness that the Rotary Club of Mississauga-Meadowvale says farewell to one of its own, Tom ‘Too Tall’ Cunningham.
During his time with the club, we got to know Tom and discover what a positive influence he was to all those around him. When Tom was 5, he was  diagnosed with systemic Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis which presented challenges that even the most toughest people would struggle with.
Despite this challenge, Tom became an author, speaker, and entrepreneur who worked to help other people see the positive in the world, by sharing his own experiences. As a Certified Napoleon Hill Instructor, Tom spoke all over the world, and shared the stage with many famous people spreading his message of finding success through a positive mental attitude.
A quote by Tom, found on his web site sums it up best:
"My God given Definite Purpose is to encourage people to live positively with and through the challenges life throws at them."
What touched me the most from my time knowing Tom was how he was always positive and grateful for what he had, and how he was always willing to share his experiences to help others. I encourage you to check out his website and see for yourself how much of an inspiration this man was.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Tom’s wife Kim, and his family during this time.
Visitation will be held Wednesday, April 11th from 6.00-9.00 pm at Turner and Porter (1981 Dundas Street West, Mississauga).
Funeral service will be held Thursday, April 12th at 10.30 am at Trinity Church, Streetsville ( 69 Queen St., South, Mississauga).
