Colby Donel Roop passed away suddenly on Thursday, August 27th in Post Falls, Idaho. He was born in Evanston, Wyoming to Dara Roop and Donel Roop on September 29, 1988. Colby was a beautiful and inquisitive young man. He was a Son, Brother, Uncle, Nephew, Cousin, and Best Friend whom we will always miss and wish to have more time.
Colby regularly read, “The Bible” and had spiritual discussions with family and friends. No one comes to earth without personal struggles. As time went on Colby turned to God more and more for answers and we are comforted that he now is in God’s loving hands.
Those who knew Colby will never forget the passionate and introspective conversations they were fortunate to share with him. He always had a kind word and an unforgettable laugh. Colby was free thinking and an intellectual who always marched to his own tune. He was a passionate advocate about personal liberties and rights and always willing to explain his point of view. His love of animals, especially dogs, was amazing as they loved him as well.
Colby was willing to help everyone. Friends say he was kind, caring, polite, and unselfishly willing to help anyone else in trouble. Employers appreciated his work ethic and he always wanted to be his best. He was a skilled concrete craftsman.
Colby is survived by his mother, Dara Lynn Roop, his father, Donel Roop, and step-mother Anna Roop; siblings Ryan Roop, Samantha Roop, Amber Roop, and Chris Alley, Chelsea Brown and Shaune Gardner; and Chase and Rachel Brown. He has beloved nieces Kayleigh Roop, Mackenzie Roop and Shay Alley, and two wonderful nephews Drake Roop and Elijah Alley. Colby has many uncles, aunts, and cousins from the Sandpoint, Idaho area.
A viewing will be at English Funeral Home at 1700 N Spokane Street, Post Falls Idaho, on Saturday, Sept 5th from Noon to 4 pm. A private family service will follow at a later time due to Covid 19.
He is so loved and missed by his family. Colby Donel Roop, Forever in our hearts.
