Our beloved husband, father, son, and brother, Thomas Arthur Best II (Beau), age 36 passed away at his home surrounded by family on Sunday, September 29, 2019. He was born on April 24, 1983, in Kingsville, Texas 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 September 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 and 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.
