Randall Laverne 'Vern' Cain

November 7, 1930 — January 2, 2016

Randall Laverne "Vern" Cain, 85 years, of Hominy, Oklahoma, ascended on Saturday, January 2, 2016 at St. John Medical Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Vern was born in Dover, Oklahoma on November 7, 1930 to Samuel Glen and Nora (O'Hern) Cain and was raised on the farm along with his sister, Kathleen and brothers, Gayle, AB and Wylie. He graduated from Hennessey High School and continued on to Oklahoma A&M. (Now Oklahoma State University) While completing his degree, Vern was a member of ROTC, allowing him to enlist in the US Army as an officer during the Korean War. While serving at Fort Sill, he met and married Doris, the mother of his daughters. He jumped into family life with his new step-children, Jane and Jim Atkins, who adored him. After returning stateside from an exciting tour of duty in Japan, Vern resigned from the Army as a Lieutenant and returned to Oklahoma A&M for his teaching certificate.

Vern and Doris then moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico with the new baby, Suzanne in tow with Marsha soon to follow. Vern taught High School Mathematics at Highland High School for 30 years, retiring in 1990. While in Albuquerque, Vern was very active in the Lions Club, serving as Secretary/Treasurer for many years. During his retirement, he enjoyed helping his many friends preparing taxes and traveling to see his grandchildren, Jeff, Jennifer, Matthew, Randy and playing with his granddaughter, Kristina. After the passing of his wife, Doris, Vern met and married Rhea Lamb in 2004. He was again loved by his new family which included Glenna and Jay Lamb.

Vern spent the last 11 years of his life back in his native Oklahoma. While living in Hominy, Oklahoma, Vern became a member of the American Legion Post and enjoyed attending the local football games. Everyone who knew him will miss his fun outlook on life. He always had a smile for everyone.

Memorial services for Randall Laverne Cain will be at 2:00 PM, Thursday, January 7, 2016 at the Calvary Worship Center in Hominy, Oklahoma.
