RAEFORD, N.C. (WNCN) — Mourners gathered Thursday to bid their final farewell to a Raeford man killed in a traffic accident.

Erwin McCain, 66, died on Thanksgiving Day when his Ford Explorer was rear ended on East Central Avenue in Raeford.

Loved ones say McCain was driving a neighbor around for last minute Thanksgiving errands. A passenger in the vehicle also died. Gil Garcia is charged with driving while impaired and two counts of second-degree murder.

McCain was celebrated as a family man, one who would help anyone in need.

“He was a hard working man,” said his son, Travis McCain. “He transported people to and from work, made a lot of friends.”
