William Stuart Melton

August 5, 2006 — March 1, 2024


William Stuart Melton, known affectionately as William to his family and friends, passed away on March 1, 2024, at the tender age of 17. Born on August 5, 2006, in Weston, West Virginia, William was a bright light in the lives of all who knew him. His final days were spent at the Children's Hospital of Alabama, surrounded by the love and care of his family.

William was the cherished son of parents Thomas Melton and Kassie (Justin) Boone. He was a beloved brother to Kayson Wortham and Kinley Melton. His grandparents, Kelly Boone, Randy Boone, and Connie Melton, will miss William's vibrant presence, as will his Aunts and Uncles, Elizabeth Dotson, Jeff Carney, Randi (Jesse) Ford and Brandi (Austin) Tyler, and his many cousins. William's family is comforted by memories of his bright spirit, knowing he now joins his late grandfather, Dennis Melton, and Aunt Tammy Carney.

A resident of Ashford, Alabama, for the past seven years, William was a senior at Ashford High School. He was an outstanding student, maintaining straight A's throughout his academic career. His intelligence shone brightly in the classroom and was matched by his loving and humorous nature.

William's passions were as vibrant and varied as his personality. An avid gamer, he loved video games, with favorites including the Spider-Man and Mario series. His collection boasted every video console imaginable, a testament to his dedication to the hobby. William was not only loving and funny but also had an expressive and colorful vocabulary that brought joy and laughter to those around him. He shared his love for the WWE video game with his little brother, Kayson, and their spirited and loud gameplay sessions became cherished family memories.

Beyond his interests and academic achievements, William was best described by those who loved him as loving, funny, and intelligent. He had a way of lighting up a room with his presence and bringing humor into the lives of others. His intelligence was not merely academic but also emotional, as he had an innate ability to understand and care for those around him deeply.

William's journey on this earth was far too brief, but the impact he made on the lives of those who knew him will endure forever. His legacy is one of love, laughter, and the pursuit of knowledge, and he will be deeply missed by all who were fortunate enough to know him.

In honor of William's life and the joy he brought to so many, let us cherish the moments we have with our loved ones and remember the laughter and love that William shared with us all. His memory will be carried in the hearts of his family, friends, and all who were touched by his remarkable spirit.
