Paul Douglas Cundiff

Born on August 28, 1937 in Parkersburg, West Virginia
Departed on December 17, 2021 in Palm Bay, Florida

After a long and full life, Paul Douglas Cundiff, born August 28, 1937, in Parkersburg, WV departed this world in Palm Bay, FL on December 17th, 2021.

Survivors include his wife Beth Cundiff with stepson Jesse, son Paul Douglas, Jr (wife Laurie) with grandchildren Kelly, Paul Douglas III (wife Brianna), and daughter Renee (husband Jeff) Nauful with grandchildren Zach, Ciara, and Austin. He was predeceased by his first wife Catherine.

Early on, Paul demonstrated his early commitment to family by giving up a college football scholarship to return home and care for his ill father. He later returned to college completing his bachelor’s at the University of Central Florida (FTU at the time) as well as master’s at the University of Pittsburgh.

He went on to serve a remarkable career in the FBI from which he retired. He held his pilot’s license for many years while living in Florida, was a tremendous coach, father, husband, grandfather, and a friend for life if you were fortunate enough to have known him. He loved his animals, gardens, flowers, travels, college football; but most of all bragging about his family.

Services will be private at Brownlie and Maxwell Funeral home.

I have great memories of Uncle Paul from when we would all get together in Chantilly. I remember when he trusted me to look after Charger for a week, and he once let me interview him for a school project. After he moved to Florida, I always enjoyed seeing Uncle Paul on his work trips back to Virginia. I will miss him and cherish the good memories. My thoughts and prayers to Beth, Doug, Laurie, Renee, Jeff and all the grandkids.
