William A. Kincaid Obituary
KINCAID, William A. William (Bill) Arch Kincaid, 83 years old, died on January 1, 2019 from complications due to lung cancer. He was born February 11, 1935 in Meigs County, Tennessee to Arch Marvin and Willie Rebecca Kincaid. Bill learned to hunt and fish at an early age. He was also a natural and accomplished athlete. After high school Bill enlisted in the United States Air Force. Upon completion of officer and pilot training he was assigned to Ellsworth AFB in Rapid City, South Dakota. There he met the "love of his life", Jean Ellen Smith of Estherville, IA. They married on December 8, 1956. As is typical for military families, they moved 8 times in 22 years while raising 6 children. Bill and Jean directly faced the uncertainty and reality of war when he flew 185 combat reconnaissance missions in Vietnam from 1968 to1969. For his heroism in Vietnam he was awarded 9 Air Medals and 1 Distinguished Flying Cross. After 25 years of military service, Bill retired in 1978 as a Lieutenant Colonel and the family moved back to Austin, Texas. He worked as an insurance agent and a construction site supervisor. After suffering a heart attack, he decided to spend more time enjoying the "other loves of his life", fishing and watching sports on TV! Bill was preceded in death by his loving wife of 50 years, Jean Kincaid, parents Arch and Willie Kincaid, sisters Wilma Vestal, Anita Carter and brothers Marvin, Jack and Bob Kincaid. He is survived by six children, six grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. The surviving children are: Janet and son-in-law Bruce Fatheree, Teresa, Mark and Bob Kincaid of Austin, TX; Ellen and son-in-law Jim Ratti of Middletown, OH; Gary Kincaid of Boise, ID. The grandchildren are: William Elsholz and wife Jenna; Daniel and Mary Kincaid of Boise, ID; Stephen, Erin and Sarah Fatheree of Austin, TX. Visitation will be held at 1:00 PM, Saturday, January 19, 2019 followed by a Memorial Service at 2:00 PM at Harrell Funeral Home, 4435 Frontier Trail, Austin, Texas 78745. Graveside service will follow at 3:30 PM at Onion Creek Memorial Park.
