Tristin Alan Peden


July 1, 2000 – June 9, 2020

Tristin Alan Peden was

born on July 1, 2000, in

Ogden, Utah. He was the

first born to Terry and

Brandy (Walker) Peden. He

was second oldest of the five

boys, including Cody, Garret,

Trigger, and Gage. The

family made their home in

Big Piney, where Tristin

lived and loved the mountains

and deserts it offered.

His love of all things hunting

and fishing started even before he

could walk. One of his favorite

foods as a toddler was “bucking

deer steak.” Tristin was known

for his signature smile and bright

blue eyes. Anyone who met him

was sure to hear about one or

several of his hunting and fishing stories.

His favorite quote was “Hunting is not a

blood sport, it’s a sport that is in my blood.”

Along with hunting and fishing he also enjoyed

riding snowmobiles with his family

in the winter and spending time with his

beloved German shepherd pup “Shadow.”

If he wasn’t camping or out shooting something,

he could be found helping out on

the Hughes and Downs Ranch or his latest

project of building a 6.5 Grendel rifle. Or

he could be found helping someone. Tristin

would give everything he had to help even a

stranger with his huge heart of gold. He was

truly a breath of fresh air to everyone he encountered.

He had a special

role of Uncle “Tistin” to his

nieces and nephews. He was

known to have a love/hate

relationship with coyotes.

He is survived by his

parents Terry and Brandy

(Walker) Peden; brothers

Cody (Courtney), Garret,

Trigger and Gage Peden;

grandparents Gary Peden of

Lyman, Kay (Holliday) Peden of

uncles Jason (Michelle) Peden

Walker of Pinedale; an aunt Sherri (Aaron)

Hatch of Lyman, and numerous cousins,
