Funeral arrangements set for Delfonics singer Randy Cain

Funeral arrangements have been made for Randy Cain, an original member of the Delfonics, who died April 9 at age 63. A memorial service for Cain will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 25 at Christ Baptist Church (950 Jacksonville) in Burlington, New Jersey. Back in the day Christ Church Rev. Frederick C. Johnson, who will lead the service, sang with the group, says Sheila Hart, wife of Wilbert Hart. Wilbert formed the group with his older brother William Hart and Cain while the three attended Overbrook High School in the late 1960s. Cain, who died in his apartment in Maple Shade, sang on such classic Philly soul hits as “Didn’t I (Blow Your Mind This Time) and “La La Means I Love You.” He left the group in 1971, but returned in the 1980s and was performing in the group at the time of his death.
