Reverend Jimmy Randall Bain, Sr.
"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith." (2 Timothy 4:7)Reverend Jim Bain, Sr. was surrounded by family as God sent his angel to escort him home June 14, 2017. He was born on September 3, 1934, in Pell City, AL. He was a graduate from Mississippi State where he played football and was known as The Passing Parson. He received a Master of Divinity degree from the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. He retired as pastor of Istrouma Baptist Church, Baton Rouge, LA in 1997, where he remained Pastor Emeritus. He touched the lives of many through his ministry. His favorite scripture was "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me" (Phil 4:13)". He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Betty Bain; children, Randy and Lecia Bain, Pete and Keippi Bain, Angel Bain and Donna Fazio; grandchildren, Amanda Bain, Destin Hooks, Ryan Bain, Haley and Michael Mobley, Austin Bain and Brett Bain; siblings, Bob and Margaret Bain, Betty Singleton, Helen and Bill Scott. He is preceded in death by his mother, Floretta Bain; father, Laney Bain; brother, Bill Bain; brothers-in-law, Bill Purdy and Bill Singleton. "Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him." (1 Thessalonians 4:13-14) Visitation will be held at Istrouma Baptist Church, 10500 Sam Rushing Dr., Baton Rouge, LA, on Friday, June 16, 2017, from 4:00PM until 8:00PM. Visitation will resume at Istrouma Baptist Church on Saturday, June 17, 2017, from 9:00AM until funeral services at 11:00AM. Dr. Randy Bain, Dr. Jeff Ginn, Rev. Ron Lambe and Ryan Bain will be officiating the service. Burial will immediately follow at Greenoaks Memorial Park. Pallbearers will be Ryan Bain, Destin Hooks, Austin Bain, Brett Bain, Michael Mobley, Eric Lane, Gordon Rogillio and Chris May. The family would like to extend a special thanks to the staffs of Regency Place Rehab Center and The Butterfly Wing at the Baton Rouge General Mid-City. In lieu of flowers, it would be his desire that contributions be made in Jim's name to the "Vision 2020" fund at Istrouma Baptist Church, which he loved dearly for the purpose of spreading the gospel to which he devoted his life.
