Obituary

Tricia Diane French was born on November 8, 1977 in North Hollywood, CA to Noel and Nancy Larson. Her journey through this life ended in an accident on June 1, 2020 near her home in Orem, UT while riding bikes with her oldest daughter.

As a mother, wife, daughter, sister, relative, and friend Tricia was relentlessly positive, loving, generous, selfless, kind, compassionate, full of life, engaging, sincere, energetic, and genuine. She was willing to experiment and learn from mistakes. This made her an amazing athlete, an excellent teacher, and a great chef. Her strong desire to include everyone at all times along with her passion, thoughtfulness, and great sense of humor made everyone feel like they were special. She loved everyone she met, and they loved her. Her hardworking, tireless, driven, and motivated nature enabled her to achieve lofty goals.

Tricia loved God and family above all else and radiated the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all around her. She was sweet, pure, valiant, and patriotic. She was a peacemaker and the glue that held different people together. As an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, she magnified her callings-even though she usually held more than one at a time.

Tricia learned to swim at an early age and loved swim team. She worked as a lifeguard, taught private lessons, and coached the Lindon Aquatic and Timpanogos High School swim teams. While living in the northwest, she began running and biking which lead her to compete and excel in triathlons-often winning her age group. After returning to Utah she developed a love of hiking, and she found ways to involve others in these activities.

Tricia was fond of all kinds of adventures and loved to experience new things. She loved the beach, mountains, and travel to new places.

She was known for throwing elaborate parties for birthdays, holidays, and for any other reason she could think of. Tricia found excuses to create themed dinners including Chocolate Hotdog Day, Groundhog Day, Star Wars Day, French Day, and even corn, beef, hash (not corned beef hash).

She attended Bingham High School, Ricks College, and BYU where she made lasting memories with lifelong friends that she gained at each step along the way.

Growing up, Tricia was a peacemaker among her siblings. She was nurturing to her younger sisters and brother, and she was a good friend to her older brothers. She maintained strong relationships with each of her siblings and worked to keep everyone in the family united.

Tricia met Rob at BYU, and they were married February 19, 2000 in the Salt Lake Temple. They were blessed with five blonde children. Always trying to improve the lives of her family, Tricia packed the calendar with learning, work, and fun activities. She took extraordinary efforts to spend enough time with her family while training extensively.

Tricia is survived by her husband: Robert Callahan French. Children: Robert Blaine, Isabelle Diane, Austin Guy, Talia Mae, and Anderson James French. Parents: Noel Goddard Larson, Nancy Lynn and Steven Blaine Webster. Siblings: Bryan Scott Larson, Steven Benjamin Webster (Amanda), Emily Anne Larson, Lindsay Aileen Tallent (Steven), Katherine Michelle Marcrum (Michael) and Kip Blaine Webster (Gabrielle). Roberts’s parents: Frances Nanieve and Robert Carlton French, Jr. Robert’s siblings Robyn Lee Stephen (Thomas), Heather Nanieve Scott (Jared), Monique Erin Pratt (Josh), Michael Davis French (Michelle), Debora Jeanne Sanders (Brian), and Rachael Dawn Beckstead (Jacob). She is also survived by many adoring nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and countless friends.

Just thinking of Tricia, makes me smile. She always spoke softly, and smiled big. She made you feel included and wanted to help you at the drop of a hat. It’s always extra special to like your kid’s friends and to be liked back! We love that they were good friends with Geoff and Sarah and we love each of the kids! The Grinch and The Nightmare before Christmas we’re great Party themes shared with the French family! Her amazing heart and life will be remembered and help me to be a better person. Much Alofa French Family. Mim and Bumpa
