Dr. Billy Paul Kincaid AUSTIN- Billy Paul Kincaid, MD passed away in Austin, Texas on Sept. 10, 2013. He was with his children when he died. Billy Paul was born in Denison, Texas on Aug. 23, 1931 to Helen Louise Bell and Floyd Paul Kincaid. He attended Sherman High School (Go Bearcats!) and was a Sgt. in the Air Force from 1950-54. He attended Austin College and was accepted into UT Southwestern Medical School before graduating. He earned his MD from Southwestern in 1959. Upon graduation, he was awarded the Ho Din by the school's board of trustees in recognition of his compassion for patients and medical wisdom above and beyond knowledge from classrooms and books. He came to Lubbock in 1963 where he practiced internal medicine for 42 years. In 2002, he received the Hippocratic Award from the Lubbock-Crosby-Garza County Medical Society. Billy Paul retired in 2005. He is survived by his children, Shannon Kincaid Stringer, Susan Kincaid Truesdale, Kelly Kincaid, and Amanda Kay Kincaid; grandchildren, Obie, Kincaid and Arden Stringer, Noah, and Sammy Truesdale, and Joseph and Brian Kincaid. Apart from Dad and Big Bopper, the title he cherished most was Dr. Kincaid. He was a gifted physician who brought deep human understanding, humor and intelligence to his practice. He told his kids when people want to know what kind of doctor I am, you tell 'em your daddy is a real doctor. We know he touched many lives in the Lubbock area. On his behalf we would like to tell his colleagues and all of his patients and their families, he was proud and honored to have been entrusted with the care of so many of you.
