Mr. Quincy was born in Springfield in 1930 to the late Margaret Blocker Kinard and the late John Quincy Kinard, Sr. He attended the local school where his mother taught English and his father was the principal (the school was later named Hunter-Kinard-Tyler honoring Mr. Kinard for his contributions to the community and the school).
