I have always been grateful for having had Mr. Bain as a teacher. Not only did he make geometry crystal clear, but he was kind and caring. He gave us the gift of confidence in ourselves. Because of him, I find joy in math and share that when helping my grandkids with their math. Mr. Bain's impact will have ripple effects for generations to come. My sympathies to his family. Sara Breslow, RFH class of '68.

So sad to hear that my coach, friend and teacher has passed away. His influence and support were so huge in my days at RFHRHS. He got the most out of his athletes and students in a 'no holds barred' kind of way. He prepared us well for the challenges we would face when we left the comfort zone of high school. My deepest sympathies to the Bain family at this most difficult time. Rest in peace coach and Thank You. Bruce Dunn class of '63.

Mr. Bain was my freshman football coach in 1964. He'd bring his young son Tom, who must have been all of 4, to some of our practices. He was an excellent coach, I can still hear him yelling at us from the sideline "get out there and knock somebody down." Apparently we did as we went 8-0 that year. Just a wonderful man and a great teacher.

Mr. Bain was my teacher for Algebra I. Geometry, and Algebra II. He had the patience of Job because my math skills were truly lacking. What a fantastic gentleman!
George Miles left a message on June 5, 2018:
Mr. Bain was the kindest "tough-guy" I've ever known. No fuss-no muss. He was unpretentious and never drew attention to himself, but he was as dedicated to the students at RFHRHS as anyone on the staff. I still fall back on the methodical approach to "proofs" he taught in Geometry, and treasure the countless memories of football and track practices. He always taught us to get over ourselves and make sure we focused on the team. God bless him and his family.

Mr. Bain was my geometry teacher in my sophomore year at Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School back in 1959 and I just remember his keen sense of humor. He made learning just a little more fun! Sending my sincere condolences to all of his family. He was a nice man!! Sharon (Egeland) Gilbert Fair Haven

Mr. Bain was my favorite teacher, but I was never in his class. I had Mr. Bain as a home room teacher. He was the fairest and kindest man at RFH. He encouraged me to become a teacher and gave me some very wise and helpful hints. I enjoyed baby-sitting for his children when they were very young. He was a special person.

Nerphrita(Black )Norris Mr. Bain was a larger than life personality with a true desire to help his students succeed. He taught us more than math he taught us about life. I will always remember his smile. And I thank him helping this math challenged student succeed. Thoughts and prayers to his family.
