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

this organization helps raise young men as Catholic Leaders. Served on the
Board of Directors for the Brazos Valley Better Business Bureau, Founding
