      Ms. Tina and family, I’m so sorry to hear about Mr. Bill’s homegoing! While my Mama (Eva Cockrell) was at Guardian Care Nursing Home, Mr. Bill was so faithful in visiting her so often. Mama was so appreciative of his visits and his compassion for the sick. He was truly a wonderful example of God’s love. We have truly lost a servant of God who will be greatly missed!

    Anyone that knew Preacher Bill could feel God’s love through him. What a humble servant he was.

    Our deepest condolences to Tine, Kate, Kerry, and all the rest of the family. My memories of Bill are wonderful. The only bad thing about growing up in Lynn Haven Baptist Church in the 70’s with Rev. Kincaid as pastor is that it set unreachable expectations for other churches later on.

      Michael, Thank you for the kind words about Dad. Kerry

    Bill was pastor at Lynn Haven when our family of 5 joined in 1976. He was an amazing pastor and Tina was the best Sunday School teacher I ever had. Even their teenagers made us feel welcome. 44 years later, I am still a member of Lynn Haven today and will always be grateful to the Kincaids for welcoming us there! My love and prayers are with you!

    Our thoughts and prayers are with Tina and the family. Bill was a dear saint of God and he will be missed. He shared in our daughters wedding and holds a special spot in our hearts.

    We are so thankful to our Lord for allowing us to serve Him with Bill and Tina when He called them to Lynn
    Haven and for the friendship we have shared down through these years. How we would love to be able
    to hug you tightly now and by being there show you more of our love. We are there in spirit and prayer.
    Much love to all of you.

    Sending my love to you Tina and family. Growing up at Lynn Haven was a wonderful church family lead by this Spirit filled pastor. He was a great leader and friend. I’ll always remember my first pastor and his family. Heaven has received an angel and my God is saying “well done my good and faithful servant’. With Love Lisa Ramsey Wright

    To Tina and family, your father was the epitome of a christian and a pastor and friend. He served well at Great Neck Baptist and was loved by many. We will miss you Bill. Rest in Peace.

    Roger and I are so sorry for your loss. We knew Bill at London Bridge Baptist Church in Virginia Beach. He was a very kind and Godly man. Praying God’s comfort and peace for your family.
