In the present work, a unification of certain functions of mathematical physics is proposed and its properties are studied. The proposed function unifies Lommel function, Struve function, the Bessel-Maitland function and its generalization, Dotsenko function, generalized Mittag-Leffler function etc. The properties include absolute and uniform convergence, differential recurrence relation, integral representations in the form of Euler-Beta transform, Mellin-Barnes transform, Laplace transform and Whittaker transform. The special cases namely the generalized hypergeometric function, generalized Laguerre polynomial, Fox H-function etc. are also obtained.
