Ernie Kincaid

Ernie H. Kincaid, 96 years old, passed away July 9, 2013, in Springfield, Mo.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Benjamin and Cora Kincaid. Ernie was married on Dec. 9, 1939, to Thelma J. Harlow who preceded him in death in September of 1996.

He is survived by his daughter, Linda J. Cockrum and son-in-law, Dr. Richard H. Cockrum of Springfield, Mo.; two grandchildren, Mark (Darla) Burton of Montfort, Wis. and Scott Burton of Phoenix; three great-grandchildren, Emma, Asa and Paul Burton of Montfort, Wis.; three stepgrandchildren, Kim Cockrum of Phoenix, Kathy (Jim) Beni of Dallas Center, Iowa and Stephanie Potter of Woodward, Iowa; five stepgreat-grandchildren, Amber (James) Paul of Little Rock, Ark., Devin (Lindsay) Beni of Waukee, Iowa and Jackson, Oliver and Oscar Potter of Woodward, Iowa. He is also survived by his sister, Fern Davis of Mt. Vernon. He is also survived by his special friend, Lavina Hein, of Spring Lake, N.J. They shared years together in Florida and were constant companions.

Ernie served as a machinist in the U. S. Navy from 1944 to 1946, during World War II. He worked at Stanford Engineering in Salem for many years prior to his retirement.

Ernie and Thelma lived in Mt. Vernon until they retired in 1982. They spent their retirement years in Ft. Myers, Fla. Ernie lived in Ft. Myers until January 2013, when he moved to Springfield, Mo., with his daughter and son-in-law.

His faith in God was an integral part of his life and has always been evident to all those around him. He was a deacon for many years at East Salem Baptist Church in Mt. Vernon. They later joined the Second Baptist Church in Mt. Vernon. In Florida, he was a member of Cypress Lake Baptist Church. Ernie sang in the choir at all three churches. His daughter always said they were at church every time the doors were open – and also when they were not open – to mow and trim and do whatever maintenance was needed outside.
