Trenton Arthur Higby
Trenton Arthur Higby (Aka T-Wax) 4/10/81 ~ 8/16/04  Trent A Higby left this earth Monday August 16, 2004 in Murray, Utah. Born April 10, 1981 in Phoenix, Arizona. He was raised in Sandy, Utahand lived his days running 83rd Street. Trent attended Hillcrest High School and graduated in 1999. After attending high school, he served an honorable LDS mission in Berlin, Germany. Trent was a beloved uncle, brother, and friend. He was an amazing person, undoubtedly one of a kind. There was not one person that he came in contact with that he truly did not touch. Countless memories we will cherish for a lifetime. He will forever be in our hearts and thoughts. Never did a day go by that we did not laugh. Trent had the most unique sense of humor, never a dull moment in his presence. His loyalty to his friends and family cannot be matched and will always be envied. To some he had a hard outer shell, but to his close friends the real Trent was revealed. His artistic talents were second to none. He will be remembered until the end of time. "I've gone to fight." - Porsche The memorial service will be held Monday, August 23, 2004 at 10 a.m. at the Hillcrest 1st Ward located on 8586 South 1000 East in Sandy, Utah. Friends may visit with family one hour prior to services. This will include a receiving line. In lieu of flowers, please make donations at any First Utah Bank under the Trent A. Higby Memorial Fund. We will always love you: DJ, Shawn, Dan, Kimball, 83rd, Unique Auto Body, Ezra, Draven, Joe, Steve, Derek, Brandon, Family, and Katie.

We knew Trenton since his birth.
It is now the year of our Lord 2020, and I cannot stop thinking about my beloved nephew.
No one living, except his parents and his siblings, knows how unique Trenton is.
Yes, his father is a polymath and if Trenton could tell us, he would grin and chuckle, bc his father can almost draw as good as he can.
We met Trenton as a young man who was on his way to Germany, I will say this, Trenton's hands are as strong as anyone's I've ever met. He shook my hand and his enveloped mine and I felt very comforted.
Our time here is almost over and soon we will meet again!
Family is love. Love is family.
I for one, am very excited to see and greet our kindred dead.
Hey, Trenton, I'm going to meet you very soon!

I wish to express my deepest sympathy to Trent's family and friends. I didn't get to know Trent as well as some but what has already been said by all about him and his life rings true to me as well. He did touch my heart with his kindness and sense of humor. I am and will be forever grateful for him and his friendship. Until we meet again.

My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family. I only met Trent once in the Orem Post Ofice. I was mailing a package to my son in Berlin Germany. We visited quite awhile. He left a lasting impression with me and I hoped our paths would cross again. What a wonder young man. May peace and comfort bless your live

I write this note with mixed emotion. Sympathy goes to the family and friends that Trent left behind, while sheer happiness is felt to know that Trent is somewhere better off. Always watching us living our day to day lives, making sure that those close to him will experience life to the fullest and feel nothing short of love. Although I will miss you Trent, I know that the feeling that you have now is entirely unimaginable. Thank you for touching all of our lives the way that you did.

Trent,
You are one of the greatest people I've ever known. You've always been so good at making people laugh and lifting them up when they're down. You've got a smile that lights up an entire room, and will be deeply missed. I'll never forget you.

I wish I could say all that I feel but there are no words to do that. Just by these people on here and those at the funeral you have touched people in ways many wish they could. I know this from personal experience. I will be better for knowing you and being around you day in and day out. You are the best friend I could have asked for. I hope you are at peace now and that you feel safe. Thanks for the advice and leadership I needed in my life. Rock On T-Wax
