Aug. 15, 1922 - Jan. 27, 2010

East Portland resident Wayne Alfred Cain, 87, died Wednesday, Jan. 27.

A viewing and gathering of friends will be held from 11 a.m. to noon Tuesday, Feb. 2, at Bateman Carroll Funeral Home, 520 W. Powell Blvd. Private entombment will be at Forest Lawn Cemetery.

Wayne was born Aug. 15, 1922, in Tualatin to Willis and Emma (Coblentz) Cain.

On June 15, 1976, he married ESTHER GRIFFITH in Las Vegas.

Wayne worked for 25 years as a truck driver and 18 years as a tree surgeon. He spent several years working in California before moving back to Oregon.

Wayne enjoyed camping, exploring and being outdoors. He traveled all over the world rock hounding, and he would make jewelry from the rocks and stones he collected. He also enjoyed gardening and loved roses. He was a woodworker and musician, and he would play guitar and accompany his father, who played the fiddle, to many barn dances.

He was preceded in death by his wife; by four brothers; and by one sister.

Remembrances can be sent to Providence Hospice, 1235 N.E. 47th Ave., Suite 148, Portland, 97213.
