BA, MA at BYU; PhD at Duke. Mission to Argentina. Career mostly in international business. Seven years in North Carolina; 28 years in Lincoln, Nebraska. We moved to Utah in 2004. Married Shauna Burgon (Orem High 1963, Miss Orem 1966) in Salt Lake Temple in 1967. We have five children, 14 above average grandchildren.

Shauna retired from BYU in 2019 and Robert still sells real estate. Shauna won another award for the magazine she edits . Shauna was awarded a BYU Presidential Service Award in 2015.

Christopher and his wife Marilyn have four kids who are active in music, theater and dance. Chris remains active at several hospitals and practices medicine a few days a week. Marilyn is a community urgent care pediatrician and an excellent cook. The family loves to snowboard and ski.

Lisa and husband Christopher have five children. Both perform in commercials and voice-overs. “Topher“ earned his PhD from BYU and served as the chair of the Utah Valley University theater department. He has directed over 46 plays, all critically acclaimed. Unfortunately, Christopher died of ALS, a terrible disease in June 2020.

Lisa currently has a radio talk show live every morning on BYU radio from 6 to 8 a.m. (repeated from 8 to 10 a.m.) on FM 107.9, also on Sirius Chanel 143. She interviews celebrities and authors around the world. Lisa filmed many episodes of "Pretty Darn Funny" (www.prettydarnfunny.com). She has written a book for Deseret Book called "Real Moms: Making It Up As We Go" and has traveled around the country making presentations for "Time Out for Women." She is the co-producer (and actress) in the hit LDS movie "Once I Was A Beehive." You can buy her book and move on Amazon.com or at any LDS bookstore. Lisa co-hosted "Random Acts" on BYU TV for several seasons. She is a cost member of "Show Offs" on BYU TV. Her new movie, "Once I was engaged," will be released in July 2021.

Gina and husband Jonathan have four children. They love to ski. Gina was a stay-at-home Mom and super-school-volunteer keeping tabs on the neighborhood. She currently works for Utah Charter Schools. Jonathan works as hard as he plays. He recently climbed Lone Peak Mountain with four pals for five hours and then skied down for an hour.

James has become a genuine superstar with Maroon5. Always on tour, they are “sold out” just about everywhere. He has started another band, too, called Phases. Check it out. We go every year to Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas for their New Year's Eve concerts. James has a signature guitar with Ernie Ball Guitars, which has won awards, too. Maroon Five are eager to tour again in the Fall of 2021

Amanda lived in Nashville, where Amanda is a stylist and designer in great demand. She has competed on a TV series (Lifetime) called “Project Runway.” We visited her in New York City twice during “Fashion Week.” You can buy her clothes on www.valentinevalentine.com. She and her partner Trent Lanham have moved to Atlanta. Amanda just gave birth to their son Jack in March 2021.

We enjoy the letters you send us at Christmas. We love you and think of you often. Robert and Shauna Valentine, 4742 W 10370 N, Highland, UT 84003. sbvalentine@mac.com - ryv@me.com

School Story:

I envy PHS 1960 grads who grew up together with lifetime friends in Provo. I grew up in Palo Alto, California where my father taught at Stanford University. Later, we lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina for four years before returning to Utah. In Argentina I attended a private school both in Spanish in the morning and English in the afternoon. I lived through the revolution that ousted Juan Peron. I enrolled in Provo High for my junior year, and I found PHS to be a safe place, and I cherish the friendships with many PHS classmates.

Voit Roper kicked me out of his English class during my senior year because I was (and still am) a smart aleck. (I later apologized to him years later while courting Shauna in his and her LDS Ward in Orem.)
