Obituary of Pierre Cunningham

April 3, 2021

On Saturday, April 3, 2021, Pierre Cunningham was called home to be with the Lord at the age of 45. He transitioned this earth peacefully surrounded by family.

Pierre was born on August 8th, 1976 in Kingston, Jamaica to Pearl and Canute Cunningham and was the youngest of 5 siblings. He had a love for all things beautiful and fell in love with fashion at an early age. After pursuing a successful career in modeling and traveling the world, he settled down in Manhattan, NY, a city he loved, where he would build his career fully immersed in the fashion Capitol. Pierre worked as a celebrity stylist and personal shopper with Prada for 16 years where he was beloved by his co-workers and clients alike. He often spoke of his love for family and being the baby brother of the bunch, he formed a close, relatable relationship with his nieces and nephews often expressing how proud of them he was and motivating them to think bigger always. His kind heart, gentle spirit, and larger-than-life presence will be deeply missed by all who loved him.

Dear Pierre "Ricky",

I'm sure you can see from the plush clouds of Heaven that you are immensely missed. Nothing could ever replace what you brought to those who love you- we will all have to move through the grief. It's just something that the collective will never get over. From your pictures and videos, anyone can see you were larger than life and an example of living said life to the fullest. You lived with no regrets and loved like there was no tomorrow. This is something to be emulated by all. May that runway in the sky be styled by you always.

Love, Jan

Uncle Pierre,

You are already so dearly missed. You dropped so many gems in one of our last long conversations and I promise I heard you. I can still hear your laugh and those signature expressions. You are the prototype. You lived unapologetically with style, grace and a kind heart and accomplished so much. Your life touched so many hearts. The little girl in me who idolized you and the adult woman who admired you will love you forever. Rest peacefully Unc.

Love, Krissy
