Dwight Hall Cain was born on November 19, 1951 in Coffeyville, Kansas. to the union of Raymond Oliver and Wilmarie Brown Cain.
Dwight was raised in Kansas City, Missouri. He was the oldest of two brothers and five sisters. He graduated from Central High school in 1969. After high school he attended Coffeyville Community College in Coffeyville, Kansas where he received an Associate’s degree in Business. He was employed as a youth counselor for the Jackson County Juvenile Court. Later he became Sales Manager for the Johnson Products Company selling hair care and cosmetics for African American consumers. He was promoted and relocated to their home office in Chicago, Illinois. He and Wanda resided in Chicago for two years before returning home to Kansas City. Dwight retired after 22 years with American Airlines due to major health issues. During this time, he developed many treasured friendships!!
Dwight married the love of his life Wanda Jean Fletcher in 1982 in Kansas City, Kansas. They were happily married for 38 years. Dwight joined 8th Street Baptist Church under Rev I. H. Henderson Sr., where he became a Deacon. In 2011, he and Wanda moved their membership to Abundant Life Church under Dr. Ricky E. Bragg, where they are still current. DC adored his pastor, his church family, and the children of Abundant Life.
Dwight demonstrated serious skills in the kitchen. He loved cooking! He also loved entertaining, gardening, all facets of sports, travel, and good conversation. DC never met a stranger and always left a positive impact or an encouraging word to all he encountered. He was everyone’s big brother! He enjoyed driving and walking the Parkville water and nature trails. He was an avid weather enthusiast who missed his meteorologist calling since most of his calls always included the current weather conditions at MCI. DC should have been listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for sending the longest texts!! They were generally a good 5-minute read, posted in all CAPS with lots of exclamation marks! DC called all of his nieces and nephews ‘Doo Doo’ and they affectionately call him ‘Uncle Doo Doo’. Dwight’s most important role was to spread the love of the Lord to all he met, and he did so exceedingly well. Dwight’s bright light will be dearly missed.

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me at the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil, my cup overflows. Surely, goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
