He finally died on March 9th, 1882, where he was interned in the Rose Heights Cemetery in the town he had served to found. He was Alex Shepherd's great, great, great, great, great grandfather.

He was one of the original founders of the town.

Died March 9th 1882
at 62 years of age.
I depart this world to face what awaits me
leaving behind this town to my children
and if God is indeed fair and just
I will never be forgiven.
The path of death must once be trod by all.
