Edition 2011, #7 - David Cain RIP

by Terrance R

David Cain!!!!!! This was a man of honor and generosity. He was a machine because he knew how to fix problems. He had a big heart, and he would always show it . David Cain was honest, caring, generous, and fun to be around. He always had fun with the all the kids. He really brought out the kids’ joy.

Here are a few statements Principal Spells made at my interview:

Terrance R (TR): How did David Cain affect your life?
Principal Spells (PS): “ He taught me to give until you couldn’t give anymore. David Cain was always over my expectations.”

TR: What qualities would you use to describe David Cain?
PS: “Big heart, love for children, concern for everyone, fun-loving, never complains even when he was experiencing back problems, never says no, and always makes a way to get the job done.”

TR: How has David Cain made an impact on St.Ethelreda School?
PS: “ He always made sure the students had school supplies for the year. He gave computers to the Library. He donated furniture to Sr. Caroline’s and my office. He would collect toys from neighbors, family members, and friends. He always made sure that everyone had at least one toy for Christmas, and if there were 200 kids, than he’ll have 200 plus toys to make sure everyone got one. He was also able to spread joy by playing and dressing up as Santa. He always looked forward to playing the role of Santa, and he made sure the kids continued to believe in Santa.”

What an interview! So many kind words from Principal Spells. As you can see, David Cain was a man of his word. He will be deeply miss for his unfortunate death. He will forever be in our hearts. Principal Spells came up with a great idea and that is to name a scholarship or a room in his memory. So I know he’s in a better place now, and may he rest in peace.


  1. What a beautiful tribute to a wonderful man! David will forever be remembered with gratitude and loving memories. May he rest in God's peace.

  2. Mr. Cain was a wonderful person with a big heart. He will surely be missed by the family of St. Ethelreda.
