Richard Eugene Cain took his final ride through the gates of Heaven on Tuesday, June 13, 2023.
In life, Rick was dearly beloved by all who knew him, and he had a presence that far exceeded his space on this Earth. He was a devout Christian, devoted family man, and a steadfast friend that loved to spend his time helping those he met.
Rick was born to Gary and Carolyn Cain in Urbana, on April 28, 1961.
After graduating from Urbana High School, he joined the Army, where he served with the 24th Combat Aviation Battalion until 1984. During that time, Rick was married to his high school sweetheart, Cynthia, with whom he had two children, Jamie Cain and Alicia Cain.
Later in life, Rick settled in the Byron, Ga., area, where he met his lifelong love Paula, and helped to raise her two children Bobbie Whitehouse and Steven Whitehouse.
Rick retired from Georgia Duplicating Products after over 20 years with the company as their information technology manager. Most recently, Rick had moved back to the Champaign area to help care for his mother. He was an actively involved member of his local church, the Hope Community Church of the Nazarene, and the local Christian Motorcycle Association Chapter, the One Sent Riders. Rick will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
Rick is preceded in death by his wife Paula, his brother Mike, and his father Gary. He is survived by Cynthia, his children Jamie, Alicia, Bobby, Steven and their spouses, his mother Carolyn, his brother Gary and sister-in-law Teresa, and his beloved 13 grandkids, one great-grandkid, and two nieces.
Services will be at 2 p.m. Monday, June 26, at the Hope Community Church of the Nazarene in Urbana.
