Obituary for Danny R. Cundiff

Danny Cundiff, 71, passed away December 21, 2023 surrounded by his family. He was born on January 1, 1952, in Louisville Kentucky to Arthur Thomas Cundiff and Anna Mae Lawson.

Danny played on the Camp Taylor Little League baseball team, where he proudly pitched a no hitter game. In high school, he discovered his love for rock-n-roll and long hair. When his coach told him to choose between baseball and his hair, he left baseball. His band, the Strugglers, was made up of a group of talented friends who competed in the 1969 “Battle of the Bands”. During the 1980’s, he returned to baseball to coach Germantown Little League teams, allowing him to spend time in the sport he loved with the person he loved the most, his son Scott.

After graduating from Durrett High School in 1970, he attended the University of Kentucky and Jefferson Community College. He then joined Cundiff Electric Company as an electrical contractor, working with his father, who founded the company in 1945. Danny eventually took over the company and grew it into the commercial electric business it is today.

Danny rarely went places without seeing people he knew and loved. He was a very social, fun-loving guy who enjoyed hosting parties. He especially loved tailgating at U of L football games, going to the lake, and meeting-up with friends at The Brewery and Kern’s Korner. While spending time with his many friends, Danny met his wife, Susan, who shares his love for friends and fun. They were a perfect match and shared many good times and fun trips to their favorite places.

As an avid car collector, he had a particular passion for buying and selling Volkswagens and Corvettes. To keep his cars looking “tip-top”, he always kept a Swiffer in the garage to clean off the car he was planning to take out for a spin.

He was dearly loved and will be terribly missed by his family and friends. Preceded in death by his parents, his brother Charlie Cundiff, and his sister JoAnn Cundiff Kelley. He is survived by his loving wife of 18 years, Susan
Brennan, his son Scott Cundiff (Sandy) and stepson Jody Nalley (Karen) and two grandsons, Sean and Brad Cundiff, along with a niece and two nephews.

The visitation will be Wednesday, December 27th, from 1:00pm - 8:00pm at Highlands Funeral Home, 3331 Taylorsville Road and service will be on Thursday, December 28th, at 11:00 am at Highlands Funeral Home. Burial at Cave Hill Cemetery to follow.
