By ROSEMARY McLENNAN The man who pioneered commercial development on Fergusson Dr at Silverstream has been farewelled. Cyril Cains' funeral was held at St Margaret's Church on Monday, Sept- ember 26. He died peacefully at Hutt Hospital on September 22, aged 88. Mr Cains was born in Lower Hutt in 1923. In the late 1950s Mr Cains opened Cains Motors to service local vehicles. He gained permission to sell petrol but only for a discreet screen pump licence'' at first, until he obtained a full licence. Demand for mechanical services saw him add to staff and buildings and after 10 years the business had grown from a tin shed to one of New Zealand's largest service stations. By 1969 Cains Motors offered mechan- ical services, car sales, its own chainsaw department, a hand-held car wash sys- tem and petrol sales 24 hours a day. The self-service car wash was innovative for its time. The driver held the nozzle and the machine sprayed hot, soapy water over the vehicle. Mr Cains sold the business in the 1980s and retired. It was later bought by Mobil, which demolished the buildings and rebuilt it purely as a petrol station. After a few weeks of college education Mr Cains had persuaded his father to allow him to leave if he could find a job. He found work at a local ropemaking firm, then began an apprenticeship at the Railway Workshops, working on buses. The war began and he put his age up to join the army. He was doing his officer training at Dannevirke when he met future wife, Vi. After his final leave before going over- seas he was judged physically unfit and transferred to Linton Camp, where he found vehicle maintenance not up to his high standards. After he left the army he returned to the Railways Workshops, finished his apprenticeship and married Vi in 1943. He became service manager of Manthel Motors in Lower Hutt and then ran a taxi but did not enjoy the work. Atlantic Oil asked him to open a ser- vice station at Silverstream and this became Cains Motors. It became the top Atlantic petrol station in New Zealand and was Mr Cains' pride and joy for the rest of his working life. He was also involved in the community as a founding member of Heretaunga Rotary in 1970 and its president in 1979-80. He was made a Paul Harris Fellow in 1993. David Hollier, officiating at Mr Cains' funeral, described him as a good man, kind, gentle, considerate of others and in the best sense of the word, a gentleman. Long-time neighbour Brian Pearce knew Mr Cains for 50 years. He said Mr Cains had an innate ability to attract very capable people to work at his business and it was a credit to him that many went on to set up their own successful businesses. Mr Cains is survived by his wife of 68 years, daughters, Glennis Calaby and Sandra Parker (both of Upper Hutt), four grandchildren and five great-grand- children.
