WM. BEST– GALVESTON -At half past four o'clock yesterday afternoon Captain Wm. Best of the Steam Lighter S. T. Maddox died at his residence in this city.

            His last hours were attended by the loving watchfulness of a devoted wife and a son and a daughter. Captain Best was but 48 years of age and had spent most of his life in this city. He went to Burditt Wells a short time ago and while there was stricken with apoplexy. He was brought home on Thursday last but never recovered from the stroke.

In all the range of the Port there could not be found a better man than was William Best. In whatsoever place he was put in he was the master of his situation and faithful to his trust. Living he had friends at every turn and dying they all shed tears of sorrow to the

memory of a man who was worth calling friend. And who in death does not lost the love won by his generous broad and kindly nature when alive.  Galveston Daily News – Galveston, Texas, September 5, 1882.  Submitted by Floyd “Lanny” Martin.

Why weep ye, then for him, who having won

The bounds of man's appointed years, at last

Life's blessings all enjoyed, life's labors done,

Serenely to his final rest has passed,

While the soft memory of his virtues yet

Lingers like twilight hues, when the bright sun is set.

His youth was innocent, his riper age

Marked with some act of goodness every day,

And watched by eyes that loved him calm and sage

Faded his declining years away,

Cheerful, he gave his being up, and went to Share the

Holy rest that waits a life well spent.
