Herbert "Art" Cain died peacefully in his Manchester home on Thursday 31OCT2019. He was born on 24NOV1936 in Cobleskill, NY. Twenty-one years later he married his sweetheart, Madeline E. Ault, in May 1958 and lived together for their entire adult lives. Art settled his family in Manchester, CT in 1964 and supported them as an accomplished machinist, employed for forty years at Aerex Manufacturing. Aside from his family, Art's passion was for model airplanes. He meticulously built and enjoyed flying dozens of lightweight balsa wood airplanes, patiently fitting them with propellers, engines, multiple servos, complicated electronics and numerous connecting rods. Art will always be remembered as a moral, quiet, optimistic and personally responsible husband and father who led by example and spoke more with actions than words. Simply said, Art was a good man.
Art is survived by his loving wife Madeline, who were married for 61 years. He is also survived by his sister, Fran, his four proud children: Cynthia "CiCi" married to Steve Petri, Douglas, Jenine married to Steve Wierzbicki, and Susan Thibodeau, his six grateful grandchildren: Jaron, Nicole, Kristyn, Kaitlin, Derek, Kyle and lastly one beautiful great granddaughter, Karis, and another on the way!!!
