In Loving Memory of Thomas Timothy Kinkaid, a proud veteran of the United States Army.
The family mourns the loss of an exceptional man, a devoted father, loving husband, supportive brother and life-long friend. Thomas Timothy Kinkaid, age 77, left us on June 10, 2023, leaving behind a deep void in the hearts of his loved ones. Although our grief is immense, we find solace in the countless cherished memories we shared with him. Born on December 30, 1945, in Sedan, Kansas, Thomas lived a life filled with joy, love, and laughter, touching the lives of those around him through his wit, quiet strength, and respect for others.
Thomas was preceded in death by his father, Brice Kinkaid, and his mother, G. Charline Rogers, a brother Ted Kinkaid and a stepson, Scott Telander. He is survived by his loving wife, Linda Kinkaid, their children Thomas Dean Kinkaid, Misty (Kinkaid) Froelich, granddaughter Madison (Kinkaid) Davis, sister Linda Swindler, brother Charles Kinkaid and stepson Mark Telander, as well as their respective families.
Throughout his life, Thomas enjoyed spending time with his family, whether it was gathered around a table playing various card games, embarking on outdoor adventures such as hunting, fishing and sitting on the porch enjoying his morning coffee and watching the hummingbirds. In his quieter moments, he could often be found tinkering in his shop or going for walks to stay active. Thomas had a taste for the simple pleasures in life; he loved a good vanilla milkshake, reading books and listening to his favorite musicians, including Lou Rawls. Thomas' personality was best described by those who knew him as witty, quiet, and respectful. He believed in working hard and enjoying life, imparting this wisdom to those he loved.
Thomas Kinkaid's legacy is one of kindness and the strong bonds he formed with those around him. His memory will live on in the hearts and minds of his family, friends, and all who had the privilege of knowing him. The loss of Thomas will also be felt by his extended family, friends, and all those who were fortunate enough to have known him. His genuine smile, quiet demeanor, and quirkiness will be forever in our hearts. He will be dearly missed and fondly remembered. Memorials can be left in Tom’s memory to the Parkinson Association and can be left at the Loran Fawcett Chapel in Neodesha, Kansas.
