Colton Clancy Tarbet

May 24, 1979 — July 8, 2022

Colton Clancy Tarbet passed away at age 43 on July 8th, 2022, in Provo, UT. Colton was born to Bourke Dewain Tarbet III and Shirley Ann Tarbet on May 24, 1979, eight years after his brother, Bourke D. Tarbet IV, in Ogden, UT. Colton joined the Navy in 1996 and served for two years until he was honorably discharged with exceptions. Colton was a food fanatic, experimenting with flavors and getting his daughters to try something new. He made sure his daughters were well fed, with plates piled high, especially at Thanksgiving Dinner. He always offered his mother a hand in the kitchen when he wasn’t by the side of his father or brother. He and his father would sit for hours discussing everything from poetry to spaghetti westerns. He learned a lot about automotives, mechanics, and construction from his brother. Colton loved to learn and loved to teach, especially when it came to chess. He was patient and eager to teach his daughters all he could about life. Colton had a strong love and a lot of respect for his family. 

Colton’s use of alcohol took hold early and made it hard for him to deal with life without it. The sudden loss of his father pushed him further into substance dependence. The unexpected and shocking loss of his brother, whom he looked up to, pushed him over the edge. Unfortunately, he spent the last few years of his life in a dark place, despite his family’s efforts to guide him back. If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction, please reach out to the Addiction Crisis Hotline at 844-918-4107. 

Colton is survived by his mother Shirley A. Tarbet, his daughters Alexia A. Cowan and Channa L. Case (Tryston), his sister-in-law Catherine A. Tarbet-Webb(C. Jennings), his niece Marissa A. Tarbet, his nephew Bourke D. Tarbet V, and his great niece and nephew Callie J. Tarbet and Bourke D. Tarbet VI. Colton was preceded in death by his father Bourke D. Tarbet III, his brother Bourke D. Tarbet IV and his grandparents.
