Centerville - Robert James Bain died October 13, 2019. Born in Hyannis, Bob was the son of the late Murray G. Bain and Patricia K. Bain of Centerville.  He was a graduate of Barnstable High School and The Franklin Institute of Boston.  Bob worked for the town of Barnstable for many years, first in the engineering department as a surveyor, and later as a mechanic in the mechanics shop.  Interested in everything, Bob retired early to work on his house and pursue his latent hobbies of cooking, photography, piloting square riggers, and riding in vintage airplanes. A native Cape Codder, Bob loved his home and the blue waters of Cape Cod.

He is survived by his brother Peter and his wife Lin, two nephews Peter and Will, and many, many friends. Services will be private.
