Raymon Hale Kincaid, 71, passed away peacefully on Saturday, August 12, 2017. Raymon was a true Texas Gentleman, attentive son, caring brother, loving father, and a doting grandfather. Memorial services will be held at Aldersgate United Methodist Church, Abilene, Texas; on Tuesday, August 22 at 1:00 PM. A reception with the family will be immediately following the services.
Raymon was a life-long student of interesting facts, but his education began at Silver Peak School and then Colorado City High School. He then moved to Lubbock, Texas and received a BS in Range Management from Texas Tech University.
As a youth, Raymon's life was described by friends as, "just like Huckleberry Finn." He filled his days with activities at Silver Methodist Church, attained the rank of Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America, and he lettered in both football and track and field at Colorado City High.
Raymon was a jack of all trades that could make anything from what he had available. He worked as a cattle rancher in Trent, Texas before he moved to Abilene and started a career as a Drill Stem Tester with TEW Testing and then Rig Testers. Next, he used his considerable contact lists and amicable personality to move into sales for Byrd Oilfield Services and later Express Energy Services. Raymon retired in 2015 and spent his time with family and visiting with friends.
Raymon is preceded in death by his parents, Hale and Roberta Kincaid; and his sister Judy Kincaid Couzzort.
He is survived by his three sons, Eric and wife Wendy Kincaid of Hurst, Phillip and wife Jennifer Kincaid of Temple, Carlton and wife Dana Kincaid of Converse; grandchildren Alicia and Wesley of Temple, Alan and Abby of Hurst, CJ and Cassidy of Converse; brother Gene and wife Gail Kincaid of Austin and niece Laura Kincaid of Austin.
