William "Will" Homer Earhart, 38, of Anchorage died July 31, 2007, at Mile 81 Sterling Highway.
A service will be at 3 p.m. Sunday at Anchorage Funeral Home, 1800 Dare Ave. Friends are invited to his parents' home after the service. Burial will be at 10 a.m. Monday at Anchorage Memorial Park Cemetery.
"Will was a longtime Alaskan and a journeyman roofer," his family wrote. "Will plied his trade for many local roofing contractors and prided himself at always being the best wherever he worked.
"Will loved and was loved by his family. He was intelligent, honest, hard working, and you always knew that if you were in a pinch, you wanted him by your side. Will had many friends and a large family who will miss him and remember him always. Will was the kind of guy who would 'stand up and back you in all man's sight with that for his only reason'; he was that kind of man. He enjoyed life and had a great sense of humor. He thought he was invincible; it turns out he was not."
Will's hobbies included cribbage, chess and shooting pool.
Will is survived by his children, Bryan, 21, Adrian, 18, Derrick, 16, Courtney, 13, and Ethan, 8; granddaughter, Chloe, 1; wife, Michelle; parents, Frank and Becky Earhart; siblings, James Earhart, Sara Dunlap, Kate Earhart, Frank Earhart and Paige Earhart; and brother-in-law, Chris Dunlap, all of Anchorage; grandfathers, William Earhart and Homer Bricker, both of Oregon; and three nieces, seven nephews, and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
