In memory of
Thomas Marshall Cain Jr.
CAIN JR, Thomas Marshall Thomas Marshall Cain Jr died on January 11, 2021 at CC Young Senior living in Dallas, Texas. Born in Dallas on March 30, 1930, Tom attended Highland Park high school. Tom graduated from SMU in 1951 with a degree in government and from SMU law school in 1953. Tom served as a Congressional liaison in the Air Force stationed at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio from 1953 to 1955. He spent 26 years in the reserves and retired as a lieutenant colonel. It was here Tom learned to fly and for many years he shared ownership of a plane with a friend. Tom practiced law in Dallas for 60 years. His specialty was juvenile law and he often made night visits to the county jail to assist his clients. Tom also enjoyed work with Hope Cottage helping with adoptions. Tom was fascinated by all aspects of politics and took part in many campaigns, local and national. Every election meant campaign signs on his lawn. Tom had wonderful stories to tell about the many US presidents and other politicians that he met. Country music was Tom's favorite and he loved listening to artists Willie Nelson, Randy Travis and many others. One of his favorite songs was "Tequila makes her clothes fall off" by Joe Nichols. Tom was a lifetime member of Highland Park United Methodist Church. He faithfully walked the two blocks from his home on Mockingbird Lane to attend services. He had a beautiful voice and enjoyed the music as well as being on the ushering team in the balcony. A favorite hymn was "Amazing Grace". Tom's love for riding and tinkering began with bicycles as a young boy. Over the years he owned at least nine motorcycles and would always say there is room for one more. At one point he had a sidecar and would give neighborhood kids rides to their great delight. Tom could identify cars from a distance and owned a classic 1968 Mercury Monterey convertible. He would drive his visiting family out for Mexican food in his gorgeous Rolls Royce. His three nieces and nephew have great memories of sitting on his front porch hearing the SMU football game across the street as Tom told them about each fancy car passing by on Mockingbird Lane. Tom loved both dogs and cats and had a number of very special Siamese cats; Burma,Slasher, and Runner were great companions to Tom and deserved and received the very best of everything. Tom was preceded in death by his father, Thomas Marshall Cain Senior; his mother, Mary Ailene Jackson Cain; his brother James Clarence Cain; and his niece Katherine Cain Snider. He is survived by his two nieces, Stephanie Cain Van D 'Elden and Lucinda Cain Moore; and by his nephew James Alvin Cain. No memorial events are being scheduled at this time.
