Managing Partner/Funeral Director

Kyle J. Incardona – Managing Partner, Funeral Director and Celebrant

Born in Buffalo, N.Y., Kyle had the pleasure of growing up in a small Polish-Italian family with deep roots in the Catholic faith.  He attended college at Niagara University in Niagara Falls, N.Y., where he studied psychology and sociology.

In the mid-1990’s, Kyle moved to Fort Worth, where he attended the Dallas Institute of Funeral Services, fell in love with his adopted home and grew up within the industry.  It was there that he met the love of his life, Cathy, and they were married in June 2000.

Early in their marriage, Kyle went back to school at Texas Wesleyan University, where he studied business management.  Beginning as a student, he gradually took on more responsibility and eventually ran two funeral homes, a cemetery and a flower shop.  Kyle took on a more administrative role when he oversaw several funeral homes and cemeteries throughout the state of Texas. The Incardonas moved to Bryan-College Station in the summer of 2007 when the opportunity to become a managing partner with Hillier Funeral Home arose and joined Carriage Services, satisfying his longing to return to helping families once again.  Since 2007, Kyle has won managing partner of the year twice, the Carriage Services 4E leadership award for the ability to energize others twice, eight Pinnacle of Services awards, the convent Good to Great award, and a proud member of the Standards Council for Carriage Service.  We added our second location serving College Station in 2015 and our crematory and cremation chapel which accommodates 70 people in 2016. This is a state of the art crematory that focuses on healing after a loss.  At this point, we became the cremation experts and started to lead the way within the death care industry after many years of studying cremation trends.

Kyle and Cathy have four children who attend St. Joseph Catholic School and Bryan High School.  Cathy is a Read 180 teacher at SFA Middle School.  They are members of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Bryan.  Kyle and his family are heavily involved in the community, volunteering in any way that they can.  Kyle currently serves as a Commissioner for the City of Bryan - Planning and Zoning, on the Board of Directors for Junior Achievement of Brazos Valley, member of the Texas Funeral Directors Association, and a certified celebrant. Recently, He has been speaking across the country on issues relating to the death care industry and customer service along with being published in several trade magazines. 

Kyle is a past Grand Knight for the Knights of Columbus, also a proud 4th degree member.  He was an instrumental member of the ConQuest Club in Bryan-College Station; this organization helps raise young men as Catholic Leaders. Served on the Board of Directors for the Brazos Valley Better Business Bureau, Founding Partner in the Americana Famila Foundation, a non-profit here in B/CS to help children attend college or trade school.  Most of all, Kyle enjoys spending time with his family and close friends.
