Tribute & Message From The Family

Clyde Griffin Kincaid, 88, of Owensboro, passed away January 15, 2021, at Hillcrest Nursing Home. He was born March 11, 1932 in Owensboro to the late Ernest and Bessie Lynch Kincaid. Clyde loved meeting his coffee group at Burger King regularly, coined the "Astronauts" as the employees would joke, as they were excellent at "taking up space." He has finally joined his best buddies from the group, Gus Paris and Kenny Burns in Heaven. Clyde enjoyed cleaning and tinkering with his vehicles in his earlier years, his pets, and watching Walker Texas Ranger.

He was preceded in death by his son, Andre' Kincaid; his brothers, Sherley, Hilton, and Russell Kincaid; and his sisters, Rowena Gaddis and Dorothy Jean Carrico.
Clyde is survived by his daughters, Renee (Gary) Jones and Chantay (Randy) Swaim; his grandchildren, Jared (Hannah) Swaim and Lacy (Jeremy) Denson; and his great-grandchildren, Maxon, Bella, Grayson, Aili, and Trenton.

The funeral service with limited attendance will be Tuesday, January 19th at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory. Burial will be in Elmwood Cemetery. Visitation will be from 2pm until 7pm Monday, and from 10am until 11:30am Tuesday at the funeral home.

All who attend the visitation and service for Mr. Kincaid shall be within current health and safety directives. Visitors shall wear personal protective masks and enter the doors under the canopy on the Triplett Street side of the building.

Clyde was truly a remarkable person. What a great friend and comrade to all of the "Table of Knowledge" he has been! I know how much Dad loved all of the guys and their many tales around the Burger King table. We have truly been blessed by the presence of such a great group of men. May God bless and comfort your family through this difficult time. Much love, Mary Paris Simmons
