According to a Facebook post, Glenn Cunningham passed away recently at the age of 53. He enjoyed many thing’s but his favorites were being a father to his 17 year old daughter Jessi, playing the guitar, and anything to do with horses or rodeo.

The Glenn Cunningham Memorial Scholarship Rodeo will raise money for a scholarship that will be presented to his daughter Jessi. She lost her mother at the age of 5, and has now lost her father at 17.  This rodeo will not only benefit Glenn’s daughter, but other families in need in the community.
