hunting for a house I also contacted John Cunningham in Sault Ste. Marie
who did a splendid job of locating properties for me to look at. He
also took lots of pictures and emailed them to me so I could get an idea
of what was available. Certainly if you are looking for a house in
that neck of the woods I'd highly recommend his services. Here is a
wee bit about him...
John Cunningham was born in Aberdeen in 1942 with
vague memories of bombing of that city. He attended Aberdeen Grammar
School which many years later was severely damaged by fire. His parents
moved to Glasgow where he attended Hillhead High School before entering
the Agriculture Department of Glasgow University, later specializing in
Agricultural Zoology. With an honours degree in this discipline, he was
accepted as a D.Phil. student at Oxford University studying viruses for
control of insect pests and graduated from St. Cross College in 1967. He
was offered employment at the Insect Pathology Laboratory in Sault Ste.
Marie where he worked for 29 years before taking an early retirement and
making a career change to real estate.
For those interested in genealogy, his grandfather,
John Cunningham, from Port Seaton, East Lothian, served with the Royal
Scots and was killed in WW1. His name is in the war memorial book in
Edinburgh Castle. His father served with the Intelligence Corps in WW2
at Bletchley, now a museum that he has yet to visit. His mother's
maiden name was Castel and many of the ancestors on that side of the
family are buried in Fyvie churchyard in Aberdeenshire.

Always good to deal with a
fellow Scot! :-)
