Edwin Burton “Pete” Kincaid, age 89, formerly of Columbus, Ohio, passed away peacefully Monday, December 9, 2013, at the home of his daughter in Woodstock, Georgia.
He was born August 31, 1924, at Durbin. He was a member of the Durbin United Methodist Church and was a 50-year member of the Masonic Lodge in Cass.
Pete retired from C&O Railroad after 25 years of service in Durbin and Huntington; and later after 20 years with the Department of Defense (DCSC) in Columbus, Ohio. Over the years, he enjoyed gardening, fishing, singing and the company of his wife, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He enjoyed following his favorite sports teams at Ohio State University (OSU), Princeton University and West Virginia University (WVU), as well as the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team, which he had followed since the 1930s.
He was preceded in death by three brothers, Sterling, Ralph and Norman; and a daughter-in-law, Lynn Kincaid.
He is survived by his wife of 67 years, Braunda M. “Bonnie” Kincaid, of Woodstock, Georgia; two sons, Dan Kincaid, and wife, Vicki, of Athens, Ohio, and Michael Kincaid, of Pennington, New Jersey; two daughters, Marsha Kincaid and Melinda Belisle, and husband, Tom, all of Woodstock, Georgia. He was especially proud that his four children were college graduates: Dan from WVU and Duke; Mike from Princeton; Marsha from Cedar Crest College; and Melinda from OSU. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Jeff Kincaid, and wife, Emma, of Redondo Beach, California, Brent Kincaid, and wife, Marie, of Scott Depot, Shannon Lough, and husband, Steve, of Morgantown, Kristen Kincaid, of Yardly, Pennsylvania, and Jack and Zoe Belisle, of Woodstock, Georgia; great-grandchildren, Benjamin Kincaid, Julie and PJ Baskaron, all of Redondo Beach, California, Luke, Ethan and Stella Kincaid, all of Scott Depot, and Sydney and Sarah Lough, of Morgantown; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
A private family service will be held in Woodstock, Georgia, followed by interment in Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Columbus, Ohio. A memorial service for additional family and friends to remember Pete will be held in Columbus, Ohio, in early spring.
