James L. Cain, 81, of Champion, went to be with the Lord surrounded by his loving family, Wednesday, March 20, 2019, at the Largo Medical Center in Largo, FL.

Jim was born April 6, 1937, in Littleton, WV, a son of Ernest and Edna (Church) Cain.

He was a 1956 graduate of Hundred, WV High School, and was employed with General Motors in Lordstown for 30 years, prior to retiring in 1994. He was a veteran of the United States Army Reserves.

Jim married the love of his life, the former Shirley E. Sole on October 14, 1960. They shared 58 years of marriage and many happy memories together. She survives him.

He attended the Bazetta Christian Church in Cortland and the First Christian Church in Seminole, FL, where he and his wife spent their winters. He was a longtime member of the Trumbull County Rod and Gun Club. He enjoyed gardening, hunting, fishing on Lake Erie, NASCAR, and attending car shows. Jim's greatest joy was spending time with his family, whom he dearly loved.

Besides his wife, Jim is survived by a daughter, Colleen (Joseph) Chesmar, of Bazetta; a sister, Berneda (Richard) Hunter, of Fairmont, WV; several nieces and nephews; and many good friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents; two brothers, George and Howard Cain; and two sisters, Doris Freeland and Betty Kent.
