He was born June 27, 1953, to Peggy and Bobby McCain. He retired from AT&T after working there 40 years. He loved to fish from the time he was a little boy with his Grandpa McCain and was a member of the Hell’s Gate Bass Club at Possum Kingdom Lake and Fun-N-Sun Elite Fleet. After a fire destroyed their home in the Cliffs, they moved to “The Ranch”, called Mc7 after his seven grandchildren. He said, “I am McCain, seven times blessed.” It was a haven that the Lord used to create beauty from ashes. He enjoyed his time there hunting, fishing and playing golf.
He was reunited with his dad, grandparents, brother-in-law, and father-in-law.
