In Remembrance of Jim Cain       November 30, 2013  

On behalf of the APSG Committee we would like to relay some sad news from Michael Barnes, Dear Friend and Business Partner of Jim Cain.

Dear APSG Family,

The Cain Family has asked me to communicate the very sad news that Jim Cain died today, Saturday 30th of November, at 5 pm.  He was a man of legendary integrity, good humor, and reliability.  Jim was 70 years young while intellectually and physically still very active.  We will all miss Jim Cain enormously.

He died of cardiac arrest with no prior indication of serious illness.  In fact, we spoke at noon today and he was in great spirits and looking forward to his next business trip to Europe.

Liz and Jim had just returned from family Thanksgiving in Wyoming and he was preparing to travel to Rijswijk (OGP geodesy subcommittee) and London (PetroSkills geomatics class). 

Personally, I am in shock by the loss of my close friend of many years and business partner of ten years.  I know that all receiving this message will feel the same emptiness. 

Please feel free to write a note of condolence to Liz Cain at 12418 Stafford Springs Drive, Houston TX 77077-3910, USA.

Details of his funeral will be communicated when available.
