Mr. Cain was born Saturday, December 5th, 1936 in Akron, a son of the late Cleo D. Cain Sr. and Helen Garrison Cain.
He graduated from Oakfield-Alabama Central School where he was a member of the wrestling team. Following graduation, he worked in the mines at the U.S. Gypsum plant, eventually moving to the power plant. From there he worked for 25 years at Eastman Kodak in Rochester, where he retired as a supervisor. Following his retirement, both he and his late wife Martha become quite "tech savvy" and converted their favorite vinyl records onto their computer compiling quite an extensive library of "oldies" and Christmas music for his family. He and Martha also enjoyed working on their home and tending to their gardens. He liked old cars, watching NASCAR on television and riding his dirt bike. A gifted woodworker, he enjoyed creating many items for his home and family including wooden baby cradles.
