1997 Davis High grad Matthew Cunningham died in November 2013 from a brain tumor that developed while he was an Army sergeant serving in Iraq. His wish was to have his ashes scattered among the Orcas in the Pacific Ocean of the Canadian/Washington coast. His family granted those wished in June, and as if on cue, a pod of Orcas -- AKA Killer Whales -- showed up. It was perfect sendoff to a young man who spent 16 years in the Army. Matthew is pictured here with sisters Lisa, left, and Candace, circa 1997.
