In memory of

  Clyde Cain

    1927 - 2010


Mr. Clyde "Bud" Cain, age 83, passed away on Tuesday, March 30, 2010. Bud was attending Creston High School and then left to join the US Navy during WWII. During his tour, he served on the USS Maurice J. Manuel DE-351 in the Pacific. At one point, he alone guarded an ammunition barge anchored in the bay near the Solomon Islands. He received a Commendation Award from Admiral Halsey for being in one of the most dangerous places in the Pacific. His destroyer escorted the battle ship Missouri into Tokyo Bay for the signing of the Peace Accord. After the war, Bud played baseball for Sullivan's Carpet in the City League. He worked as a machinist at Tannewitz Inc. for 34 years until his retirement in 1990. Bud built two homes for his family, one in Ada and later one in Rockford. He was a very good carpenter, who had a talent for coming up with creative solutions. During Mary's illness, he was her caregiver. Bud had a good sense of humor and liked to tease (sometimes you didn't know if he was kidding or not). Most of all, he was a quiet, humble man, who was always there to help others. Bud is survived by his daughter and her husband, Linda and Doug Christie; three grandchildren; six great grandchildren; nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his wife, Mary on July 26, 2000; his daughter, Peggy Hause; and his sister, Dawn Hatch. The service for Mr. Cain will be Saturday at 2:00 p.m. at the Pederson Funeral Home with Deacon Kenneth Baldwin officiating. Military Honors will be under the auspices of the US Navy with entombment in Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens.
