James "Jimmy" Glen Cain II, 45, of Midland, passed away peacefully in his sleep at his home on March 7, 2013. Jimmy was born March 31, 1967, in Midland. He attended Midland schools and graduated in 1985 from H. H. Dow High School.
Jimmy served in the U.S. Army
at Ft. Benning, Ga., from 1985-1988. After returning to Midland he became a volunteer fire fighter
at both Larkin Township and Lincoln Township. He recently retired from the City of Midland. He was a loving father, son, brother and uncle. He really enjoyed joking and doing pranks with the kids, because he was a kid at heart himself.
Jimmy is survived by his sons, Bryon and Micah; and their mother, Tammy; parents, James and Susan Cain of Midland; brother, Jeff (Char) Cain; nieces, Shelby, Jayci and Sofia Cain; grandmother, Grace Hanson; aunts, Judy Burgoyne and Mary (Roy) Meadows; uncle, James (Shelia) Hanson; great-aunt, Irene Baisch; many cousins; and the Rivett, Smith, Willman and Wilson families. He will also be missed by very special friends, Jennifer (Reilly) Keskey, Jim Markey, Robb Clark and Larry Owens. He was preceded in death by grandparents, Ralph and Bertha Cain and Dale Hanson; special aunt, Pat Japp; and cousin, Danny Hanson.
Jimmy's passion was the outdoors. He enjoyed hunting and fishing, but his most loved enjoyment was mushroom hunting. He will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him.
