Gerald E. Cain, age 88 of North Canton, went home with the Lord to join his wife, June on Sunday, September 29, 2013. He was preceded in death by his parents Ernest and Bonnie Cain. Better known as "Jerry", he was always the 'life of the party' and was a constant tease and loved by all of his friends and family. He was a member of Raymond Street Church of God and also a lay pastor himself. He was born on Feb. 3, 1925 and served in the Navy in WWII.
The most important things in Jerry's life were his family where you would find him joining in the fun and games with his nieces, nephews, five grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren, especially at the infamous family reunions.
He is survived by his sons David and Bruce (Karen) Cain; sisters, 'the girls,' Betty (Kibler) and (Jack) Hawthorne of Lisbon, Evelyn and (John) Toalston of Minerva and Rosemarie and (Bill) Toalston of Salineville, OH; and daughter-in-law, Jeannie from Texas with whom he enjoyed daily conversations.
