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. He is also the first Certified Funeral Celebrant in the Brazos Valley.

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.

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, satisfying his longing to return to helping families once again.

Kyle is proud to bring innovative new ideas to the funeral industry that enhance the already established tradition here at Hillier Funeral Home. Service is his main focus. "Having the finest locations, most knowledgeable staff, and the concept of a servant's heart is what makes us the finest funeral home in the Brazos County!" When asked why he chose to become a funeral director, his answer is simple- "because life is precious!"

Kyle and Cathy have three children who attend St. Joseph Catholic School and Cathy is an English teacher at Bryan ISD.  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 is a past Grand Knight for the Knights of Columbus and currently a member of 11759 and a 4th-degree member of Council 2041.
