Here is buried a man of beloved spirit, keeper of faith, behold he is Mr Moshe Yosef. Died Friday the 15th of Av and buried on the 17th in the year 5626. You acted with straightness and did righteousness, you walked simply and you feared G-d, you ate from the toil of your hands and your palms were clean (honest), you guarded your tongue from evil and you distanced from falsehood. Woe, from the land of the living you were torn and laid down in this grave, but peaceful rest you found because at peace with G-d you ascended to heaven.
May his soul be bound in the bonds of life.

I'm hoping someone can help with a translation for the Hebrew on this gravestone.

Thank you,
