Charles Cain

October 12, 1930 — June 26, 2024

Dr. Charles R Cain passed away on June 26, 2024 in Allen, Texas at the age of 93. Charles was born October 12, 1930 in Hallsville, Texas to parents John Raymond and Pearl Sisk Cain. He had three older sisters; Ruth Dale Cain Brown, Vesta Lou Cain Hawkins, and Mary Sue Cain Lawrence who preceded him in death.

Charles grew up in rural East Texas and greatly loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing, and his constant companion dogs. He attended Hallsville Public Schools as well as Kilgore Junior College and the University of Texas at Austin. In 1952 he was accepted into the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas fulfilling his mother's wish that he become a physician. Following graduation from medical school, Charles completed his internship and medical residency in Internal Medicine at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas. In 1954, he met Patricia Ann Young of Tyler, Texas, then a nursing student at Baylor University. They were married on June 11, 1955 in Tyler. Charles and Pat made their home in Dallas and later in Sunnyvale where they resided at the time of Charles' death.

Charles practiced Internal Medicine in Dallas for 38 years. He took care of multiple family generations in his private practice in the Lake Highlands/White Rock areas of Dallas. Following his "retirement" in 2000, he shifted his focus to other medical fields including the provision of quality medical care to Medicare beneficiaries under the Texas Medical Foundation and served as the medical director of several hospice organizations.

Charles also had a deep and profound love for his multiple English Springer Spaniel dogs, most recently his beloved, Samantha Rose, who was constantly by his side.

Charles was raised in the Baptist Church in Hallsville. He remained grounded in his Christian faith throughout his earthly life. He was an active member of the First Baptist Church of Dallas for many years where he served as an officer of the President's Class.

Charles is survived by his wife, Pat; children, Polly Lou Cain Montgomery (John) of Allen, TX, and Craig Kent Cain (Beth) of Sunnyvale, TX; grandchildren, Colin Cain Montgomery (Shenae) of Amarillo, TX, Sheridan Christine Montgomery of Dallas, TX, and Daniel Jacob Cain of Fort Worth, TX. Charles was preceded in death by son, Clayton Keith Cain; and grandson, Bennett Cain Montgomery.
