Carl E. “Kip” Cain, Jr., age 69, passed away on Saturday, November 12, 2022, at the Bloomsburg Care & Rehabilitation Center where he had resided for several years.

Born in Bloomsburg on May 6, 1953, a son of the late Carl E. “Nip” and June Joanne “Josie” (Parsell) Cain. He was a lifelong resident of the Bloomsburg area and a 1972 graduate of Columbia Montour Vocational Technical School where he played on the football team.

For much of his life, Kip enjoyed working at carnivals with his goldfish game. He especially enjoyed working at the Bloomsburg Fair each year. In his early years he was employed by K-Cab and later drove a truck for the former Lawton Trucking Co. In later years he delivered newspapers for the Press Enterprise on a motor route.

Kip enjoyed attending basketball games with his friends and driving around the countryside on back roads.

He was a member of St. Luke Lutheran Church and the Lightstreet Community Fire Company.

Kip is survived by his longtime soulmate, Christine Steinert of Bloomsburg, his sister Linda Mrak of Riverview, Florida, an aunt, Barbara Parsell and an uncle, George Parsell, both of Galeton, as well as numerous cousins.

My cousin Kippie!
I loved you and you were a bright light,always with a smile!
Years ago when I would visit you and your Mom,Dad and Linda, you used to say"Pam do you want to go spotting deer?," We would climb into your truck and go to fields full of deer and you would shine a spotlight on them and I was thrilled to see those beautiful creatures!! I doubt that you ever said a mean word in your life. Hugs my cousin . You made this world a brighter place , and now you light the cosmos with your smile.
