Trevor Adon Cunningham passed away January 22, 2014 at age 29 in a single-vehicle commercial

accident on East End Road in Homer, Alaska after a mechanical failure caused his vehicle to run off the

road. Born in Soldotna June 2, 1984, Trevor was forever an Alaskan at heart. He loved anything with an

engine, adventure, beer and late night bonfires, but most dearly his family and friends-that-became family.

He attended Soldotna elementary, middle school and high school, but later graduated from Kenai

Alternative High School before going on to work in a variety of industries from restaurants to the oil

field. He met his soul mate, Shannan Carter in 2008 and they later married in Homer, June of 2013.

He spent his days working hard to support his family, but always had a smile on his face knowing it was

all for his children and their future home he planned to begin building in the spring of 2014. He was all

theirs in his off-time, whether it was snow machining in the caribou hills, football games across the

state, or just quiet evenings at home.

He is survived by his wife, Shannan; and four children, Shelby Hardy, Austin Hardy, Gage Hancock, and

Dillan Cunningham; as well as his father, Ralph E. Cunningham; his mother, Debora A. Lee; two brothers,

Brice Cunningham and Cameron Ewing; four sisters, Stacy Cunningham, Tracy Cunningham, Amanda Vin

Zant, and Audrey Scott; three nieces; eleven nephews; and innumerable friends. Trevor had a fiery

personality and heart too big for his own good sometimes that ignited happiness in everyone he met

and all those who knew him loved him for it.

He never liked to see people sad, and had expressed before his passing that he did not want a service or

viewing. There is a donation fund for his family set up at Wells Fargo, the Bridges Cunningham Family

Fund. His family asks that those who knew him honor his memory by living their lives with a smile"
