My father and I sailed along side Rod and the Donelle B for almost thirty years. A quiet,humble and kind soul. I remember well some moments in Bristol Bay that I can say with all my heart that I was proud to be a friend of Mr. Rod Bain. He spoke little of his WWII service, but we all knew of his service as he described to me personally as "A Nightmare." We continued our friendship for years as we both retired from the fishing industry, but never forgot the good times. I was shocked when we lost Alan But again always remembered the good times. My Dad and Rod would have tea together and talk fishing. I would call Rod from time to time over the years to thank him for his friendship, his service to this great Nation and thank him for the freedom that I enjoy today. Rod is and will always hold a dear spot in my heart as a friend, and mentor. May God bless his soul as he has mine to have known a truly great man.

I first met Rod in Dillingham, Alaska in the early eighties. As my own father and I were commercial fishermen as well. I remember his gentle demeanor and general kindness. He became a great friend for over thirties years. I remember him coming to our boat and having tea with my father. I would call periodically to thank him for his service to our country and thank him personally for my freedom. He was quietly a great man and is and will be truly missed. God bless his soul.

I was only able to spend a short time with Mr. Bain. I fished a summer on the Donelle B with Alan and Mr. Bain went out on a king opener with us. I was also able to attend my grandfathers birthday the same year and Mr. an Mrs. Bain were in attendance. I only know the incredible admiration and respect that Allen and my family had for Mr. Bain. He gave me a something to strive for. He showed me that we can be better than ourselves.
You will be missed Mr. Bain.

Dear Bain family,
My sincerest condolences to all of you. One of the great memories in my life was the honor of breaking bread a time or two with Mr. Bain and his wonderful family. My wife and I hope you will find comfort in the belief that now he is now truly at peace. And also catching up on a lot of lost time with his "Brother", my dad and the many others whom have passed before him. Take care and know many share your grief at this moment.
Most respectfully,
Pete & Laurie Toye

Mr. Bain was my sixth grade teacher at Inlet View Elem. in 1967. For some reason, I have strong and good memories of him (although he seemed quite exasperated with us). He was a kind man, and kind to me. My condolences to his family, and my thanks for his service, as both a soldier and a teacher, to our country!

Dear family Bain,

The first time we met you was in 2006 at the reunion of the 506th PIR
In Atlanta. We visited the reunion with the Dukeman family. They lost there
Uncle at October 5th 1944 in Holland. At May 10th 2011 we met you again
With Nancy and Chuck Borg and we had lunch together.

At September 17th 1944 the 101st Airborne Division jump into Holland.
The Dutch people says “There are the angels coming down from Heaven” and
Now is the moment the Rod makes his final Flight to heaven.
Rod, rest in peace.

With deepest sympathy to the Bain Family.

May the Hearer of Prayer (Psalm 83:18; Psalm 65:2) grant you strength, courage and the sweetest peace during your time of sorrow. And may you always cherish the many fond memories of times spent with Mr. Bain.

Juanita, Jacksonville, Fla.
