Kenneth J. Cain

August 30, 1941 — January 27, 2022

Kenneth J. Cain, of Reading, passed away on Thursday January 27, 2022. He was 80 years of age.

Born in Somerville, Kenneth was the son of the late Lester and Doris (Ballou) Cain of Stoneham. He was a loving son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, uncle and friend.

Ken grew up in Stoneham and then resided in Reading, where, in 1975, with the help of his wife, he founded Cain Oil Inc, which is still the family-run business. He really enjoyed going to the harness races in Maine and spending summer time at the family cottage in Ocean Park. He also enjoyed going to Foxwoods and then Encore with his sister, Joan, and frequently made trips to The Villages in Florida, with his wife, Diane, to visit his brother and wife. He was known by all as caring and helpful, and he had a wonderful sense of humor. Family and friends always enjoyed his joking and colorful way of telling stories that always brought many smiles and laughs. Loved by all who knew him, he will be truly missed by all of his family and friends.

Kenneth was the beloved husband of Diane (Hobbs) Cain. He was the devoted father of Debbie Belanger and her husband John, Sharon Pietrillo and her husband Michael, Pamela Duval and her husband Kevin, John Cain, and Jennifer Richmond and her husband Jim.

Duval and his wife Melissa, Samantha Duval, Joseph Duval, Skylar Cain, Christopher Richmond, Jeremy Richmond, Rachael Richmond, Brenda Pietrillo and Shaina Pietrillo. Loving great-grandfather of Marisa Rossi, Tyler Rossi, Devin Duval, Danny Duval, Aliyah Belanger and Lilliana Belanger. Dear brother of Warren Cain, Joan DeSano, Linda Ulrich, and Theresa MacKeen.
