Cunniff Elementary School lost a young student recently, and a crowdfunding campaign has been started to help his family.

Second grader Ayyan passed away at the age of 7, and is remembers for his infectious joy, according to a building-based substitute, Pete Carron.

“The loss of Ayyan is felt throughout Cunniff and the community. As a building-based substitute teacher I’ve had the pleasure of working with Ayyan on several occasions. He was quick with a smile and a high-five whenever I would see him. That kind of joy is infectious and the best kind of light to share with others,” Carron wrote. “As a parent of three kids, I can only imagine how hard this loss is for the family. Financial support through the GoFundMe site won’t bring Ayyan back, but I hope it gives the family a little breathing room to grieve and make things just a little bit easier.”

The Cunniff community has already started to respond to the GoFundMe campaign, which aims to raise $20,000. As of Feb. 7 42 people had contributed over $8,000. See more information on the GoFundMe campaign for Ayyan by clicking here.
