Wiley Douglas Kincaid, 69, passed into Heaven on Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2010 in Bellville, after a long battle with esophageal cancer.

He is survived by his wife Celia, his former wife Sandy, son Robert, daughter Susan, daughter-in-law Janet and grandchildren Marshall, Kate, Kendall and Olivia.

He was preceded in death by his loving mother and father, Alta Mae and Herman, his brother Charles and sister Nancy.

Doug was born Oct. 20, 1940 in Corpus Christi, and moved to Galena Park in 1943.

He loved music and became an accomplished trumpet player at Galena Park High School, where he graduated in 1958. 

After a year at the University of Texas in Austin, he moved back to Galena Park, married his sweetheart from Austin, Sandy, and started his career in the wholesale plumbing industry in Houston with Plumbing Supply Company, where his father also worked.

The family moved to the Woodforest area of North Shore in 1965, where the children grew up and Doug continued his successful career at Plumbing Supply.

In the early 1970’s, Doug earned the prestigious 32nd degree Scottish Rite Mason, qualifying him for work as a Shriner. He also found another enjoyment in life through football officiating, where he joined the Houston Chapter of the Southwest Football Officials Association in 1973, and worked his way up to the Division I level before retiring from officiating in 1998.

Doug moved to the Tomball/North Houston area in 1980, and remarried in June 1988 to his loving wife Celia.

Doug’s lifelong dream to retire in the country was fulfilled when he and Celia moved to Bellville permanently in 2001.  Some of his most enjoyable times were with the grandkids on the farm, helping in active service at First Baptist Church – Bellville, where he served in many capacities, including a Sunday School teacher and Church Treasurer, and directing all the traffic around his hay farm, Kincaid Farms.

Funeral Service were held Saturday, Feb. 13, 2010 at 10 a.m. from First Baptist Church of Bellville with the Rev. Steve Olsen, officiating.

Interment was in Pilgrims Rest Cemetery, Bellville. 

Pallbearers were his son Robert (Bobby), his grandson Marshall, his daughter’s fiancee’ Steve Misthos, and his close friends Jerry Decker, Jerry Sisson and David Turnage.  Honorary pallbearers are members of his “Apostles” Sunday school class at FBC – Bellville.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Men’s Ministry or the Building Fund for First Baptist Church of Bellville, 504 E. Strauss, Bellville, Texas 77418.
