The following information was provided by Margie von Marenholtz

Lea (pronounced Lee) Gunning was born in Kokomo and spent his entire life there except for a brief residence in Cassville, Indiana.
He was married October 18, 1917 to Arlene McCoy and graduated from Kokomo High School.
On the outbreak of World War I, he entered the first officer's training camp at Fort Benjamin Harrison and after being commissioned, served as an instructor at Camp Shelby and other training points with the rank of First Lieutenant. He was assigned to the Adjutant General Department, ORC, Indiana. He was a member of the American Legion and of Beamer Methodist Church.
Lea was a mail carrier from the Kokomo Post Office for more than twenty years, retiring from that service three years before his accidental death. The local newspaper reported that icy road conditions were the cause.
His car veered off the road and crashed into a telephone pole three miles north of Morgan Street on the Ohio Street road. He died of a broken neck and death came suddently with the impact, according to the coroner.
The car, with a badly damaged radiator and his body in an upright position behind the driver's wheel, was discovered by another driver, who was driving by the scene of the crash. Lea, apparently, had been driving south toward Kokomo.
His daughter, recalled that her father had been hunting and there were rabbits in the car. His daughter was so traumatized that she went into early labor and had her son the next day. She was unable to attend her father's funeral.
Lea and his wife had three daughters and one son. His widow never remarried. He is buried at Memorial Park Cemetery in Kokomo."
