North Myrtle Beach police Sgt. Gordon William Best’s funeral is 2 p.m. Friday at Alabama Theater, according to his obituary.  

Best died in a car crash in the early morning hours of Jan. 1 while responding to a call in Barefoot Resort. He was 30 years old.

Visitation is scheduled for Thursday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Alabama Theatre. 

Following his Friday funeral, committal services with Masonic rites will be held at Southern Palm Memorial Gardens in North Myrtle Beach. 

As of Tuesday afternoon, COVID-19 protocols have limited the available seating inside the theater, and attendance will be restricted to family, North Myrtle Beach public safety personnel, and invited dignitaries and Masons. 

The funeral will be live-streamed and the link will be published by the city. 

The city is also looking into the possibility of showing the funeral on a jumbotron in the theater parking lot; that decision will likely be made Wednesday, the city said.
