Rickey Lane McCain, Trivia extraordinaire, Entertainer, Jokester, Food Lover, Chef, Salesman, U.S. Army Veteran, Compassionate Human, and Loving Father, passed away on Monday November 23, 2020 at the age of 69.

Rick was deep frying turkeys at Stover Electric company picnics in Lubbock Texas before it was ever cool to do so. He could also be found at those same and other functions grilling or operating a smoker full of brisket or ribs. Usually doing so with a big smile and sharing a joke with friends.     

You could never pull him away from a game of Trivial Pursuit or an episode of Jeopardy. He had vast knowledge of a little bit of everything from his love for reading…. A little bit of everything.

For many years Rick worked for Stover Electric in Lubbock Texas as an estimator of projects all over the country. Most recent before retirement he was an amazing car salesman. This suited him well for his radiant personality and passion for talking, story telling, and meeting people.

Rick was born to Jimmie “Mutt” McCain and Bonnie Hall McCain of Hughes Springs on January 31, 1951 in Marshall Texas. Rick was divorced and never remarried, but lived the last 35 years of his life with his better half and love Jody Schroder. She will miss him dearly. He is survived by his sister and brother-in-law Sherry and Billy Stover which he loved and adored. His only son and his wife Chanse and Heather McCain of the U.S. Virgin Islands. His nieces and nephews Angela Green, Brad Stover, Christi Kenny, Darren Stover, and all of their beautiful families he loved and admired in the Dallas area.

A memorial service will be held at 1:00 p.m. Saturday, January 9, 2021 at Reeder Davis Chapel. Burial will follow at Harris Chapel Cemetery under the direction of Reeder-Davis Funeral Home in Hughes Springs.
