FRONT ROYAL, Va. (WHSV) - New Hope Bible Church in Front Royal is mourning the loss of one of its members who died on Sunday in a crash in Warren County.

33-year-old John L. Cunningham, of Strasburg, died when a 2006 Ford Focus crossed the centerline and collided with Cunningham’s 2006 Kawasaki motorcycle.

In a Facebook post, the church expressed their condolences and how the loss of Cunningham will make an impact on the community.

Bobby Stepp, Pastor of New Hope Bible Church, says Cunningham served as a part of the elder board for the church.

“John became a part of that three years ago,” Stepp said. " I had the privilege of marrying John and his wife.”

Stepp says Cunningham and his wife had been living in Strasburg and loved his wife as much as he loved his church.

“He was just a great man humble, sweet, but had a strong personality when it came to honesty and making decisions,” Stepp said.

He adds the church will be working with Cunningham’s family and will hold a service later this week.
