“Jake” Kevin James Cable, age 25, of Gray, Tennessee, went home to be with the Lord on Friday, May 25, 2012, in the Johnson City Medical Center following a brief illness due to complications from an autoimmune condition. He was born on October 24, 1986 in Charleston, SC.
Jake’s passion was spending time and caring for his three-year-old son, Dayton James Cable.

He was a member of First Baptist Church of Mountain City and attended University Parkway Baptist Church in Johnson City.
Jake is survived by his son, Dayton James Cable; mother and step-father, Lynne and Kenneth Phillips; father, Kevin Cable; sister and brother-in-law, Elizabeth and Edward NeSmith; one niece, Hannah NeSmith; one nephew, Hunter NeSmith; grandparents, Dayton Ray and Janet Payne and Elizabeth “Betsy” and the late Wayne Cable; one uncle, Dayton Timothy Payne; one aunt, Janet Rhea Payne and her daughters, Katherine and Amelia and numerous great-aunts and uncles, and cousins.
Private family graveside service and interment was held on Sunday, May 27, 2012 with Pastor Kenneth Grindstaff officiating.
