Mr. Mitchell James McCain was born on February 17, 1942 to
the late Alexander McCain Sr. and Ester Mae Crowder McCain
in Richmond County, North Carolina. At 81 years of age, he
quietly departed this life on Wednesday, December 20, 2023 at
Hospice Haven, Rockingham, NC.
Mickey, known by many loved ones, family and friends, joined
Ellerbe Grove Missionary Baptist Church at a young age and was
a faithful member for many years. He attended Richmond County
Schools and was a graduate of Leak Street High School in
Rockingham, North Carolina. During his stay in Fayetteville NC,
he worked with Fayetteville State University and then with R.J.
Reynolds Tobacco Company in Winston Salem, NC. He served
as a PFC in the U.S. Army from October 1966 until his honorable
discharge in September 1968. He also served as a long-time army
reservist while living in Winston Salem NC. When Mickey
returned home to care for his ailing father, he became employed
with Richmond Memorial Hospital and then Hamlet Hospital
until he retired.
Mickey was affectionately known to take the time to help and
assist whomever he could and in whatever capacity he could. If
one needed a vehicle, he didn’t mind lending his. If one needed
a conﬁdant, his ears were always open to listen. And if one
needed a shoulder to cry on, his was always the ﬁrst in sight.
Mitchell J. McCain was preceded in death by his siblings
Alexander McCain Jr., Freddie McCain, Edward McCain, and
Those left to cherish his memories are his children: James E.
McCain (Rosa) of Kuwait, Michelle M. Wall of Rockingham, NC,

A very special tribute to Mrs. Marie Everette who considered
Mickey to be one of her own sons and would always call him “My
Mickey.” Also, to Barbara Everette, who lovingly said that Mickey
was her brother from another mother. Thank you, Mrs. Marie and
Barbara, for your ever loving-kindness that will never be forgotten.
