Obituary for David Elmer Kincaid

David Elmer Kincaid, Age 68, of Oak Hill, WV was called home to be with the Lord on February 25, 2022, at Raleigh General Hospital in Beckley, WV. Even though a failing heart took him away from this world, his loving heart left a beacon of light to assist in forever guiding his family.

David was born to his parents Elmer and Doris Kincaid on July 1, 1953, in Oak Hill, WV. Throughout his life, he worked extremely hard and personified not allowing his life-long visual impairment to deter him from accomplishing the goals he set for himself. After graduating from Collins High School in 1971, he went on to study Electronics Technology at the United Electronics Institute and was a long-time employee of Mountain Vending before happily retiring in 2007.

David was a man of faith that loved all his pets, and he had the greenest of thumbs towards gardening. Throughout his life, he was well-renowned for always being willing to lend a helping hand and he had the uncanny ability to tell a joke to lighten the mood and make everyone around him smile - no matter the situation. He also enjoyed a life-long enthusiasm towards country music, technology, graphic design, home repairs, and loved boating & camping at Summersville Lake.

David was devoted to all his family but viewed his biggest accomplishments in life as being a father. His children, Cherlyn & Scott, will forever view their dad as their superhero. He was there for them throughout their ups and downs and taught them to stand tall, be proud, and to always strive to be a better person.

David married the love of his life, the late Janet Bailey-Kincaid, in 2008 and was also predeceased by his paternal and maternal grandparents, and his parents, Elmer and Doris Kincaid.

Those left to reflect on his many jokes and eternally cherish his memory include his daughter, Cheryln Kincaid; his son and daughter-in-law, Scott & Sarah Kincaid; his grandchildren, Lily & Evan Kincaid; his brother & sister-in-law, John & Pauline Kincaid; his nieces Erica Scarbro & Jessica Kincaid; and many other nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

In keeping with David’s wishes, he will be cremated. No services are scheduled at this time.

High Lawn Funeral Home is assisting the family.
