An aspiring baseball player during his youth in the Pawtuxet section of Warwick, he worked his way through the various age group divisions in the old Providence Amateur League before World War 11. He was a toolmaker by profession at the former Brown & Sharpe Mfg. Co. in Providence. After the war, Mr. Cunniff switched his allegiance to fast-pitch softball, which flourished in those days. He was gifted with a dry wit, which he used to enhance his duties in effecting changes in regulations with coaches. On the field, many a disgruntled coach retreated placidly to the dugout with a smile on his face after Mr. Cunniff wittily explained a call that the coach had disputed. The explanation often had nothing to do with the call. He kept up a running conversation with the schoolboy and American Legion catchers. One of the ploys he used to win over the catcher was to express his condolences to the catcher for having to handle the slants of a pitcher who was having difficulty finding the strike zone. The catcher, out of team loyalty, usually defended the efforts of his friend, the pitcher, an ongoing effort that kept him from noticing Mr. Cunniff's calls on the pitchers. One friend of Mr. Cunniff's, Joe Donnelly, a noted schoolboy football official, likes to tell of the time when a batter, after Mr. Cunnif had called a strike on him, growled back, "You sure missed that one." Mr. Cunniff quickly replied, "If I had that bat in my hand, I wouldn't have missed it." He also umpired in Little League, Babe Ruth League, the Rhode Island Amateur League, and various college games in Rhode Island. He was particularly proud of his association with the Fox Point Little League, the oldest Little League in Rhode Island. Davey Lopes, who rose to stardom with the Los Angeles Dodgers and later managed the Milwaukee Brewers, played in that league, and Mr. Cunniff often told stories of how he had "noticed" Lopes's superior ability. Besides his wife, he leaves a daughter, Janice Giorgianni of Portsmouth, and three grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. He was the brother of the late Lawrence and Jack Cunniff, and Mary Fish. The funeral will be held Wednesday at 9 a.m. from Woodlawn Funeral Home, 600 Pontiac Ave., with a Mass of Christian Burial at 10 in St. Paul Church, 1 St. Paul's Place. Burial will be in Pawtuxet Memorial Park, Warwick.
