Ronnie was one of five sons born to Edward Eugene and Jane Lee Eichenauer Cain. As son number two he entered this world on June 27, 1956 in Iowa City, Iowa. Ronnie attended Tipton High School and retired after 20 years of employment working for H.J. Heinz Company in Muscatine, Iowa. He loved the outdoors, hunting and fishing and spending time with his son. Ronnie was relentless and was not going to give up without a fight.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Edward and Jane Cain, brother, Mark Cain, and his sister-in-law, Diane Cain.
We send our deepest sympathy to all. Bob & Bobbie Jo Donohoe
I rented a house from Jane... Many times she and Ronnie comforted me with a wonderful warm meal. And great conversation. R. I.P. Ronnie. Give Mom a hug for me. Deepest sympathies to Jeremy and the family.
So saddened to hear of Ron's passing. Ronnie was a classmate of mine. Sitting beside him in math was always a good time. A memory that comes to mind often when reminiscing about high school. I would run into him now and then catching up with each other so I knew he had health issues. I saw a very determined man at that time who was going to fight to enjoy what was important to him. Loved ones and the outdoors. Rest peacefully Ron.
Jeremy, So sorry for your loss. I knew Ronnie for almost 50 years. Some of the stories I can tell you about good times at your farm years ago would put a smile on your face. Condolances Ward Shontz
My condolences to BIlly, Terry and families. I didn't know him, but I'm sure he fell in line with his brothe'rs footsteps. RIP!
VIcki and Cain family, sorry to hear of my classmate Ron's passing. We'd cross paths in town on occasion, and I new he battled health issues. He was a scrappy dude, and I know he gave it his all. My sympathy on your loss.
