Cain served in the Kansas House of Representatives, then spent two decades as Independence postmaster. Even in his retirement years, he served a term as a Montgomery County Commissioner, and then was associated with Potts Funeral Chapel for many years. His church and Masonic affiliations were numerous.
Lee Cain was dedicated to others. He was always positive in his outlook and loyal to the Independence Community. Lee’s hallmark was his smile and his dashing appearance. Deeper than that, his heart was soft and his word was golden.
He came from the Greatest generation, and lived a life that will leave a sad void in our midst. God bless his wife, Ernie, and all the family as they grieve the loss of such a wonderful man. -Rudy Taylor 24 Dec 2015
