Born on March 9th, 1953 Daniel Marvin was the oldest child of the late Clarence M. and Janet Kohl Cunningham of Stillwater. He grew up in Stillwater attending public schools and graduating from C.E. Donart High School in 1971.
In 1978 he wed Holly Lewis of Bartlesville, OK and they made their home in Stillwater. In 1985 they were joined by their son Schuyler (Sky). Their marriage ended in divorce in 1991.
He then married Patricia Radford of Stillwater and adopted her young son Robert. Their family was complete with the birth of their daughter Slone. This marriage ended with Pat’s untimely death to cancer.
“Dano” as he was known to most, was employed at Mercury Marine/MerCrusier as their Lake Test Engineer. He thought of this as his “dream job” and enjoyed every day he got to work there. He was always ready to test the engines whether at Lake Carl Blackwell, Keystone Lake, or the seas in Florida where he was particularly fond of “working.”
Daniel is survived by his three children Schuyler, Robert, and Slone, his sisters Elizabeth (Betty) Cunningham of Stillwater and Margaret Cunningham of Billings, Montana, his brother Steve and his wife Jeannie Cunningham of Upton, Massachusetts, and their daughters Rebecca and Helen, his former wife Holly and numerous friends, some he had known since childhood and cherished all his life.
Per his wishes, cremation will take place and a celebration of Daniel’s life will be announced at a later date.
