Carson Roper

Carson William Roper was born on September 7th, 2006. Carson lit up the room when he entered it. With an innovative mind, Carson loved to fix things and problem solve. He passionately researched anything he was interested in, and then put in the hard work to be good at his many projects. Carson got his love of cars from his dad, and has been working on the El Camino with hope to drive it when he turned 16. An accomplished cook at the age of 14, Carson regularly cooked for his family. Gourmet ramen, legendary scrambled eggs, and delicious crepes. The Best Big Brother to his siblings, and wise beyond his years, Carson is great to talk to when you need advice. Carson worked at his first job this summer, covered in silver aluminum dust and a smile as he passionately worked in the family business. Due to an ATV accident on June 20th, 2021 Carson returned home to the loving arms of our Heavenly Father. Carson is survived by his Parents, Eric and Gabrielle Roper and his siblings Bryant, and AdriAnne of Henderson, Nevada. Great grandparents Lynn & Justine Goodfellow and Patricia & Bill Western. Grandparents Cliff & Maria Roper and aunt Angela. Sean & Lavonne Crosby, uncle Chandler, and aunties Chelsea, Cierra, Alexa, Ryanne, Chloe, Alyse & McCall. As well as his many cousins, aunts, uncles, and a squad of great friends. Carson is loved by us all, and it is our honor to carry on his memory. He will never be forgotten.

    With a heavy heart I tell you Mr Carson (as I called him) will be missed very much. I had the pleasure of watching this incredible young mans mind work when building the most amazing LEGO creations at Safekey. I always told him he should be an architect. I am praying for you all. Carson I will see you again someday in our heavenly home. It’s only goodbye for now.

    Eric and Brie,
    I have been overwhelmed with emotions beyond my control since I received the news regarding your dear Carson. I am not able to imagine the unimaginable amount of the emotions and suffering you must be experiencing. The pain, the despair, the immense grief, the sorrow…..all and everything that you are experiencing. I hope your faith leaders can help you with the ability to face the tremendous assault this has placed upon you and your family. I pray for your ability to try to reconstruct your lives in a world without the gift that was Carson. Carson, the kid that was not normal. Sure, he was a little bit nerdy and different, but WOW, what a gift he was to this world. His difference was that he was so intelligent, so inquisitive, always striving to learn more, a funny sense of humor, he knew right from wrong, and many times the example and leader to his brother and sister. The ability to carry on a very intelligent conversation in an adult world like a 21 year old, while he was just a youngster of 14. His changing voice. He was such a different delight to be around in this world where most youth are so disconnected from reality. Yes, he was very different, and thanks to God for his difference. You know I never had children, but if I ever had a child, I would be the most blessed person in the world if I had a Carson. That is the Carson that will leave such an incredible hole in your hearts and the hearts of anyone that knew him. I know that your wonderful memories of Carson will be with you for the rest of your lives. I hope those memories help to diminish that incredible grief you are experiencing. Thank you for sharing Carson with me and the others that encountered him in their lives. All of us were made better because of knowing him.

    The loss of Colton is such terrible news. I hope you find the strength from knowing that you were such a wonderful parent, that you made their days bright and happy. They spent their days loved and cherished. I know this cannot bring them back to you, but please know that their memories were happy, and you gave all of yourself, and, in return, had the most wonderful son who was a credit to you. Their memory will live on forever in your hearts ♥️

    Carson was such a special person! You raised an amazing young man! He was mature beyond his years in intelligence, empathy for others, good manners, and being an all around gentle person that was kind and friendly to everyone. His curiosity and love for learning were some of his greatest characteristics after being an amazing human being. He will truly be missed by so many! I feel so fortunate to have had him as a student. He will never be forgotten! May the love and comfort of our Savior be with you all now and forever more and know that Carson will always be with you. My love and condolenses to all his family and friends!
