Col. William P. Kincy Jr.
Bill was the first boss I had as an adult in late 1980 at MITRE. Being new to the area, only 21, married and having a 4 month old baby he allowed me the opportunity to mature, learn, and excel in an environment that few have the good fortune to enjoy. I deeply respected him for so many reasons. To this day I still have fond memories of both of you. I'm so sorry he was so ill and my heart aches for you with this loss. Bill was a very gentle, kind, patient, understanding and fair person and his influence in my life has not and will not be forgotten.
Bill was one of the few people that I have had the honor and privilege to have met as he really defined what a person should aspire to be. I met Bill while working on the ODIN contract when I flew in the JSC to conduct an audit. His vast knowledge, skills, and knowhow made a huge impression on me; however, what was the most impressive was how down to earth and genuinely kind he was and the respect he showed everyone. True respect has to be earned by an individual and I can honestly say the he was and continues to be one of the most truly respected people I have had the honor to know. His passing will leave a huge gap in many people's lives that we will not be able to fill. My deepest sympathy goes out to all of Bill's family. May God bless all of you.
Just a note to the family: Bill's name will be called out at Aggie Muster for the Galveston County A&M club's muster next Monday. A candle will be lit in his honor as well as his name will be called out at Muster.
Mr. Kincy will be missed. He was so patient and had such wonderful stories to tell. The old saying, they broke the mold, definitely applies to him! Gig 'Em, Mr Bill!! I will make sure to remember you at the local Aggie Muster next Monday. You will be missed but remembered!
I could write a book about Bill and my time together..but for need of brevity will send a note on what Bill meant to me... I met Bill back in the early 80s with CSC contract at JSC and could easily write a book on Bill's and my working together for over 30 years., Bill was my manager/mentor for years at JSC as well as a fellow co-worker and always ... always a very dear and cherished friend. You will never find a more honest, loving, or caring man than Bill. I want to express my deepest sympathy to the family and let you know how deeply imbedded in my heart Bill is.... Bill mentored me and helped me set my career path for which I will be eternally grateful.
God Bless you Bill, you will be dearly missed but you will live in my heart
