Thomas “Beau” Arthur Best II

Our beloved husband, father, son and brother, Thomas “Beau” Arthur Best II, 36, passed away at his home surrounded by family on Sunday, Sept. 29, 2019. He was born on April 24, 1983, in Kingsville to Glenda and Tom Best. In 2008, Beau, in partnership with his father, started Rockin’ B Environmental Services and worked closely together to grow their business in South Texas. On Sept. 13, 2008, Beau married his loving wife, Haylea. On March 18, 2010, they were blessed by the birth of their precious son, Thomas, who was the most important part of his life. Since childhood, Beau had a love for the Frio River, where he spent many wonderful times with his family and friends, where he eventually met and married his wife and then continued that family Frio tradition with his son. He also had a passion for classic trucks, spending time with friends and traveling. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and customizing his own truck. Many will remember him for his quick wit and entertaining sense of humor. Beau always enjoyed the opportunity to tease or prank a family member or friend. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him and loved him. 

Warm hearted memories of Beau will live on through his beloved wife, Jacquelyn Haylea Best; his son, Thomas Arthur Best III; his parents, Glenda and Thomas Best; sister, Nichole (John) Saenz, all of Kingsville, and sister, Michelle Trant of Houston; mother and father-in-law, Kim and Bill Stalker; brothers-in-law, Harper (Candace) Ray and Hunter (Melissa) Ray; nieces and nephews, MaKenna, Kyler and Jaedyn Saenz, Ramsey and Rex Trant, Parker, Pierson, Preston and Presleigh Ray, and Madelyn and Chloe Ray and many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. 

A memorial service is scheduled for 11 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 5, 2019, at the First Baptist Church, 312 W. King St., Kingsville, with Dr. Jack Willoughby officiating. 

Flowers and donations in memory of Beau may be sent directly to the church.
