Mr Cain was my Show Choir teacher in 1989 and 90 at Hayes Jr High School. He was an amazing teacher. I never forgot him or his name. What a guy. God bless him and his family

I knew Dan from being a member of the Anytime Fitness in St. Albans. He was in the gym very regularly and seeing him there was always a nice part of my day. He witnessed some of the workouts the trainers would put me through over the years and he was always at the ready with words of encouragement and motivation whenever they were needed. He will be missed.

I had Mr. Cain at LJHS. I enjoyed joking with him and performing with him and the Lincoln Singers. He never gave up on us students. He was a friend. I can't wait to sing with you again in the Heavenly Choir. Prayers to the family. He will be missed

Dan served on City Council while I was the Fire Chief for the city. Dan was always polite, kind, understanding when it came to the needs of the fire department and community public safety. When I would need his support he would always say, "your the expert". He never tried to play politics or ask for special favors. My condolences to the family. He was a nice man.

My condolences to the Cain Family. I had the pleasure of having Mr. Cain at LJHS. He was more than just a teacher. He was a father figure, protector, counselor, friend and more. I had the greatest times in his class and didn't want to go to any other. Sadly, I didn't get to become an official Lincoln Singer as we had to move to NC the week after auditions. He was so sad to hear of that but understood. I will never forget the impact he had on me. A great and wonderful man. No one could play that piano like him. Until we meet again Mr. Cain, Love to your family.

Mr. Cain was the best!!! I was in Lincoln Singers in the 80’s and would have done anything for him. He wanted the best for his students and went to the ends of the earth to prove it. I went on to get a choral music degree and taught high school choir as well as playing and singing in church. I was a church music pastor for 30 years professionally, and now volunteer as a musician. He inspired us all to be the best we could be.

Keeping the family in my thoughts and prayers. Mr. Cain was a wonderful teacher. I was put in chorus by mistake at LJHS. Mr. Cain told me to give it a chance. I loved it. He was a talented musician and piano player. His smile and laugh were all-encompassing. He loved his students and took care to look after them beyond the classroom.
