Age 68, of Beechview, on Friday, October 1, 2021. Beloved husband of 32 years to Evelyn C. “Lyn” (Kirkpatrick) Cain. Loving father of David (Melissa) Cain, Matthew Cain, Brian Tiel, and Dayna (Martin) Muncie. Beloved PapPap to his seventeen grandchildren; Krystalyn, Emily, David, Jordyn, Savannah, Volencia, Maura, Emorie, Madeleine, Rachael, James, William, Julianna, Isabelle, Patrick, Abigail, and Martin, who all brought him so much joy in his life. Brother of Kathleen Maciejewski and Timothy F. (Sandy) Cain. Son of the late Wilbur E. and Ruth L. (Herrod) Cain. Dave will be sadly missed by many nieces, nephews, and extended family that all loved him dearly.
Dave grew up in Knoxville and was a 1971 graduate of Carrick High School. On November 4, 1989, he married the love of his life, Lyn. Throughout his life he served as the Assistant Scout Master of Boy Scout Troop 1182 and a P.E.R. of the Pittsburgh Elks Lodge #11. In his professional career, Dave was the founder and owner, for 25 years, of Greyline Service, a company that serviced and repaired commercial kitchen equipment. Prior to the inception of Greyline Service, he worked as an equipment repairman for Hobart for 22 years. Dave enjoyed his job, was proud of the work he did, and considered many of his customers as his friends. Dave was a huge Pittsburgh sports fan! He loved going to the games and rooting on his hometown teams. He also loved being part of the Footballers fantasy football league with his son, David, and daughter-in-law, Melissa. Here, he was known as “Pops”, and win or lose—he loved to trash talk. Even though he never served in the military, Dave always had great respect for his country, and those who did serve. He was grateful for the service of his father, father-in-law, and many friends, but especially, that of his son David, who he was extremely proud of.
Some knew him as, “Dave”, “Dave Cain”, ”D-dot”, “sweet Daven”, and others as, “epic father”, “PapPap”, “HIM”, “favorite father-in-law”, “Uncle Dee-Dee”, and “Pops.” These names could go on forever, which shows just how much he meant to so many people, but even more so, how much he will be missed.
Friends received Friday 3-7 p.m. at BRUSCO-NAPIER FUNERAL SERVICE, LTD., 2201 Bensonia Ave., Pgh, PA 15216.
