Loving father, partner, son, grandson, brother, nephew and friend, Danny Cunniff passed away on Thursday, October 8, 2020 at the age of 26. Our hearts are broken by his sudden loss.

Danny is survived by his loving girlfriend Briana Ellyson, their sweet baby daughter Mya Cunniff, and Briana’s beautiful daughter Emily Pajnogac; his parents Murray and Cathleen Cunniff; three brothers Terence Cunniff, Ryan Cunniff and Patrick LeQuire; his grandmother Marie Cunniffe; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. Danny was preceded in death by his grandparents, John P. Cunniffe II, Patrick J. O’Donnell and Mary E. O’Donnell.

Danny worked at Bellingham Cold Storage as a team lead forklift driver. He enjoyed spending time with Briana and the girls, family gatherings, hanging out with friends, eating Mexican food and watching the Seattle Seahawks. He had recently taken up cooking and grilling, and was becoming an excellent cook.

This year brought intense joy to Danny and also great hardships. With the state of our world and community, many are struggling. If you need help, please reach out.

  1. Dearest Caytie, Murray, Terry, Ryan, Brianna and the rest of my west coast family,
    Keeping you in my daily prayers.
    Sending HEARTFELT virtual hugs.

  2. As a Michiganian, I didn’t see Danny often. But I have a delightful memory of sharing a pizza dinner with this sweet young nephew of mine not long after his high school graduation. I saw him again in a dream I had several nights ago. His beautiful face was glowing with happiness, love, and peace. I pray every day that this dream is a true one, and that Murray, Caytie, Terry, and Ryan (and everyone else who loved Danny) will feel that love comforting them in the days and months to come.

    Dear Murray and Caytie,
    I feel loss, you feel loss, but it is tinged with hope. Fall back into greater arms — the arms of Jesus, and the arms of your family.
    The music of Mount Baker will lift you up like a prayer. Go there soon and often, and let its great essence help heal your mind and spirit: listen to the wind, the birds, and the sound of silence.

  4. Thinking of you all at this time and sending all the love on the world.
