His obituary was published in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch newspaper on May 19, 1938.42 His obituary stated:
Dr. Gadsby Falls Dead at Horse Show. Tumbles From Mount as He waits for Judges' Decision. Collapsing as he faced the judges at the end of one of the events in the St. Louis Horse Show at the Missouri Stables Arena last night, Dr. William C. Gadsby, veterinarian and veteran horseman, died a few minutes later in the offices of the arena. Physicians summoned from the audience of 1200 who saw Dr. Gadsby tumble from his mount, said they presumed he had suffered a cerebral hemorrhage.
Dr. Gadsby was 74. His two sons, John Gadsby and Robert Gadsby were at the show when their father collapsed. John Gadsby was one of the group who ran to his assistance when he did not rise, and carried him into the arena office. Dr. Gadsby lived about three minutes and then expired.
Dr. Gadsby had ridden Lady Harriet, a 2-year-old owned by Harry J. Burkhart, in the event for three-gaited saddle horses. He had waited in the office for the event. As the time for it drew near, he arouse, remarked almost prophetically to a companion, "It time for me to go," and went to get his mount. When the horses had been put through their paces, the riders lined them up in front of the judges to wait for the decision, and at this moment Dr. Gadsby collapsed. His mount, a mare, did not place in the event, which was won by H. J. Sternberg's Black Prince, ridden by R. F. Glenn.
Dr. Gadsby had trained horses for about 50 years in the St. Louis area, according to Burkhart, for whom Dr. Gadsby had been trainer for many years. He was active practically every horse show put on here for a long period, and was general superintendent of the current show. Burkhart said he apparently had been in excellent health.
Besides helping in the arrangements for horse shows and in the details for carrying them out, Dr. Gadsby appeared on practically every program as a rider. Mayor Dickmann, president of the St. Louis Horse Show Association, paid tribute to his industry and ability, "He was usually the first to start to work and the last to leave," the Mayor said.
Dr. Gadsby had his veterinarian hospital at Watson and Denny roads in St. Louis County. The property also provided space for stables for horses he trained. These stables have housed many notable St. Louis horses, including his own Mary Peavine and W. T. Treadway's Rainbow Rose, which Dr. Gadsby rode in many championship stakes here and in other shows throughout the country.
He also trained many high school horses and one of the best of them was Mable Rex, which was exhibited at the St. Louis World's Fair in 1904. Earlier, acting for Herman Stifel, he had purchased from Col. Palmer, a horse fancier of Colorado Springs, Forest King, which became one of the five-gated stallions of the early 1900's. The purchase price was $3000, and the big stallion earned many times that sum and later valued at $30,000.
Years ago, Dr. Gadsby maintained a riding academy and training school in the old Bremen Brewery in North St. Louis, where many of the fine riding and trotting horses of the city were to be found. Seeking a suitable place to exhibit these horses he and a number of others built the old Waterworks Park track at the foot of East Grand avenue.
He was one of the founders and the first president of the North St. Louis Gentlemen's Riding and Driving Club, which was organized to stimulate interest in the Waterworks track. After about 15 years the club and track no longer attracted interest and were abandoned. Dr. Gadsby then moved to the country.
His wife survives in addition to his sons.
The body was removed to the Bopp undertaking establishment in Kirkwood.
