    Sad to say that a man from Milton has died from the corona virus. From what I've read, he was an avid musician and by the pictures I've seen, a guitarist. Was he a member of our forum and/or did anyone know him? Sean Cunnington was his name. RIP.

    Where did you see this? There’s another musician Cunningham in town. Wondering if they’re brothers. Please share your source.
    I didn’t know him.

    Yes, I knew him. And this is very very sad news. Unbelievable.

    Sean owned the T-Rox music school where my kids took lessons. I took some lessons from him. We kept in touch thanks to Facebook, and became guitar buddies. He left the music biz to work at Kal-Tire, and his office was 2 minutes from me. I’d run into him there, and we’d chat about gear and gigs for a long time. An amazing player who toured in the 80’s. He was still playing with bands, writing and recording. Last year he played a big stage at a festival in Toronto.

    did you know him? I never got to meet him. I just hear that his passion was music.

    No, I never knew him. I just thought some in our guitar community might have. Sounded like a great guy. RIP.
