Kincart, the founder of residential brokerage firm Kincart Associates of Yorktown Heights, was an Associate Broker with Houlihan Lawrence at the time of his passing. He was born to John and Grace Kincart on Oct. 21, 1957, in Tarrytown. According to his obituary, his higher education began at the Coast Guard Academy, then shifted to Cathedral College. He graduated Magna Cum Laude as he considered priesthood. He taught at Cathedral Prep while starting and coaching its first soccer program. He started his career in sales at Sara Lee, shifted to real estate, and eventually co-founded his real estate company, Kincart Associates, with his wife Elaine.
He volunteered his time and expertise on the Yorktown Assessment Review and Planning Boards. He also taught CCD at St. Patrick's Church, coached soccer, and built floats for school classes and sets for the school dance company. His ability to create something out of nothing earned him a reputation as a “MacGyver.”
He is survived by his wife Elaine and his children, Brianna and Conor. He is also survived by his mother, Grace, and his siblings: Mary Kincart, Christine Kincart, Joe and Laurie Kincart, Stephen and Sue Kincart, and Andy Kincart, along with all their children and grandchildren.
