Robert Glenn Cain 81 years old went to be with Jesus on February 12, 2021. Robert (Bob) was born on April 28, 1939 to Denver and Ruby Cain in Fairmont, West Virginia.

Services will be Saturday, February 27th at 10:00 at Grace Community Church. In honor of Bob’s service and his love of his country, please feel free to wear patriotic attire.

Bob was a loving husband, father, grandpa, and friend. He never met a stranger and loved to give hugs. He was a mechanic extraordinaire and if it had an engine, he could make it run.

Bob joined the Air Force shortly after high school graduation. He was stationed at Walker Air Force base here in Roswell where he served for 8 years. Shortly after coming to Roswell, he met the love of his life Barbara at the roller rink where he fell at her feet, literally. He was quite the catch and could two-step and Waltz like no one else on those skates. They enjoyed 60 years of marriage together.

Bob enjoyed life and lived it to the fullest. He began driving a truck in 1965 and continued until just weeks before his passing. Bob loved old cars and his favorite of all time was his green 1940 Chevy. It was a pleasure to any car enthusiast to see him pull up at church on Sunday mornings.

Bob enjoyed hunting and fishing with his boys and his grandchildren. Many miles were walked up and down the mountains of Ruidoso looking for that perfect deer or elk. Summer weekends were spent on a boat with Barbara and the kids hoping to catch the big one.

Bob’s ability to build and fine tune an engine was remarkable thus came the legacy of Bob Cain Racing. From go kart racing with the grandkids to dirt track racing with his boys, Bob was most happy leaning over an engine or under the car giving it a final touch. His smile could fill a room when the race ended in a victory.

Bob was preceded in death by his parents Denver and Ruby Cain as well as the recent passing of his beloved daughter, Janice Palmer.

He is survived by his wife Barbara Cain. Children Denver Cain and wife Shanna, Bryan Cain and wife Holly, Melissa Smith and husband Daniel, Tom Palmer (son-in-law) Brother Bill Cain and wife Su. Grandchildren Megan Perez and husband Allen, AJ Palmer and wife Heather, Sara Hankins and husband Austin, Haley Loving and husband Deric, Bryson, Ashton, and Daci Smith. Great-Grandchildren Kason and Kyler Perez, Justin and Jocelyn Palmer, Rayleigh Hankins and the grandpups.

Dad, we love you and miss you so much. We know that Janice needed you in Heaven and that your work on this earth was done. We look forward to the day when we are in your arms in glory.

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Matt 5:4
