Len McCain

February 22, 1949 — June 1, 2020

Len McCain, age 71, passed away at his home surrounded by his loving family friends. “I have fought the good fight; I have finished the course; I have kept the faith.” 2 Timothy 4:7 Visitation will be at Blanchard St. Denis Funeral Home on Thursday, June 4, 2020 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Funeral services will be held on Friday, June 5, at 3:00 p.m. at Blanchard St. Denis Funeral Home and followed by interment at Memory Lawn Cemetery. Officiating will be the Reverend Tommy Rush. Len was preceded in death by his parents, Harold Leon McCain, Sr and Marguerite Graham McCain, and his niece, Shelly Elizabeth McCain. He is survived by his only child, Heather, and son-in-law, Elton Danos, and his three grandchildren: Colin Lowry, Bryce and Ella Danos. His grandchildren were the delight of his life. Also, Len is survived by two sisters and a brother: Sandra Hines (Lewis), Carla Papa (Tony), and Steve McCain (Melanie), and his “special” aunt, Sue McCain. He was a graduate of Natchitoches High School and Northwestern State University. His career started at the NSU Student Union where he and his family owned the school’s food service for the university. They were very well known for the best “stuffed potato” in the world! He took his food service experiences to the public sector and built the Captain’s Galley on Sibley Lake which became The Mariner. Then he purchased the Natchitoches Meat Pie Company from his longtime family friend, Buddy Austin. This is where he thrived and poured his passion into the love of a quality product that was so instilled from his family’s love of the food industry. His tremendous work ethic was the cornerstone to building his successful company. He was well-respected by his employees as he gave them much respect. He remained involved with the company, the employees, and their families well after retirement. Honored to serve as pallbearers are: Colin Lowry, Stevie McCain, Brandon Papa, Peter Papa, John Godfrey, Aaron Adams, Ray Mabile, Lamone Speed. Honorary pallbearers are: John LaCaze, Dee Fulton, Buddy Hall, Johnny Muckleroy, and James Machowski. The family is very grateful for the support and outpouring of love that Len received as his health became challenged. A special thanks to Dr. Wyche Coleman, Jr, Dr. Martin Carter, and Dr. Sean Troxclair who remained ever present in Len’s daily health needs. Additionally, Ray and Connie Mabile, were life-savers beyond measure. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Emerald Coast Autism Center, 80 College Drive, Niceville, Florida 32578. “For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13
