WOODFORD COUNTY, Ky. (FOX 56) — The Jack Kain Ford dealership in Versailles announced the death of its founder, Jack Kain Sr., on Wednesday.

The dealership announced Kain’s death on Facebook, saying he was a senior leader in the automobile industry and in the Woodford County community.


“He will be greatly missed by those who liked and loved him, and his great ability to bring laughter and joy to so many will forever leave us with memories of life lived to the fullest,” the dealership said.

Kain was a well-decorated member of the Ford community, receiving 13 Ford President’s Awards, according to the dealer.

The Kentucky new car dealer was the son of a dairy farmer and started selling cars part-time while attending the University of Kentucky in 1947. In 1953, he bought his first car dealership in Frankfort before buying up the other two dealers in the market.


The dealership said Kain has served over 80,000 customers over the last six decades.

Kain and his four children supported multiple causes outside of car sales, including children and education, organ donations, pediatric cancer research, National Guard troop support, local and regional festivals, foundations, and events.

Funeral arrangements have not been announced.
