William Christopher Roof, born April 19, 1990, to Colena Clara Allison and Paul Christopher Roof in Fairbanks, Alaska, died unexpectedly on Nov. 29, 2023. From the moment he was born, we knew he was a fighter.

Born with a cleft lip and palate, William underwent multiple surgeries until the age of 18. Never giving up, and never letting anyone tell him he was different, William went on to attend Denali elementary school, North Pole middle school and graduated from the military youth academy in 2007.

After graduation, William moved to Spokane, Washington, where he then met his wife, Tracy King. William and Tracy met in December of 2014 and were married June 24, 2017. William and Tracy shared three children, Camille (stepdaughter), Grayson and Estelle.

William is survived by his mother, Colena Allison of Colville, Washington; children, Camille, Grayson and Estelle, of Colville, Washington; wife, Tracy King of Colville, Washington; sister, Rachel King and husband Matthew Misewicz of North Pole, Alaska, and nephew Jayden Misewicz; nieces and nephew, Taleah King, Audrey King and Jason King of Nebraska; brother, Bryan Roof of North pole, Alaska; and countless aunts, uncles and cousins all over Alaska, Washington, Louisiana, and Portland, Oregon.

William is proceeded in death by his father, Paul Christopher Roof; maternal grandparents, Myna and Rolin Allison Sr.; paternal grandparents; and uncle, Andre Allison.

Due to the unexpected departure of William, a service may be held at a later date.
