For Timpview students from Indian Hills who attended Farrer and then Provo (before Timpview opened...), and rode bus #19 or 24 driven by Bob Burgie...

Thanks for posting this, Brad. I remember lots of crazy stuff that happened on the bus trips to and from Farrer back in the day, including one driver (possibly this one?) grabbing the fire extinguisher and spraying Richard Folsom and Guy Mildenhall with it and then telling them not to play with matches.

And I remember that the radio was always playing top forty hits whenever we were going anywhere in a bus. I heard a lot of now iconic songs for the first time on Provo City School District busses back in the day. And, while we were taking folk guitar, we'd break out the guitars on the ride home and practice our licks. Good times!

Yeah, given that it was Richard and Guy, are you sure it was just matches - lol?

One memory of Bob, and this will date us. After completing a flintlock pistol, a school project of mine, Bob wanted to give it a try. So the day I brought it home, he touched it off in the bus. Kaboom! The bus filled with smoke. Everyone still on board went down behind a seat. As he pulled away, choice words were said and smoke billowed from all the open windows. I must admit to some joy that it was a picture I can never forget. When I took my last ride in that bus the paper packing was still in one of the roof joints and yes that is why the bus smelled of rotten eggs.

As I write this another thrilling ride came to mind. On a very cold and stormy winter day we were dropping down on one of the roads near Navajo lane and the bus started to slide sideways down the road. We were overjoyed and making the required noise then that voice, no PA system needed put us all in our place. He recovered from the slide, to our dismay, and drove us to school as if nothing happened. It didn't occur to me till much later that for some reason there were no cars parked on road. Had there been with the bus sliding sideways things could have been much different. He was/is an incredible man and an exceptional school bus driver.

He will be missed.

Great story, Greg! It's a good thing that didn't happen today or Bob would have gone to jail and you probably would have paid a visit to the juvenile facility down on South State Street.

By the way, I ran into John Allsen at the State Room in SLC last night while attending a concert there. I had a nice as of yet unfinished chat with him. What a fabulous surprise!

John: I finally put two and two together and figured out that you must have lived in the neighborhood over where Will's Pit Stop is now. For some reason, I was thinking the other side of I-15. But I realized you never could have walked to Edgemont Elementary from there. Next time you plan one of your dinner outings, I'm in!

I wrote a review for TVHS class-of-'79er Robert Schultz's sci-fi novel, which I posted at You can access that and other reviews via this link:

Check the book out. You'll enjoy reading it.

I hope all you theatre fans will snap up tickets to 1776 soon so that you don't miss out on seeing our very own Bryan Chapman in the role of John Hancock at Centerville Legacy Theatre starting in about ten days and extending into the first part of July. Here's a link to their website:

This theater routinely sells out all its shows, so I'm not kidding when I say you've got to snap those tickets up soon. We're planning to go in early July when my wife gets back from overseas.

Omigosh!  I have season tickets to the Centerville Theatre - front row!  Please tell me that Bryan will be doing the 6/24 Saturday matinee performance :)

I thought our former classmates might be interested to know that Cptn Kirk Alvord flew the plane on which my wife and I traveled from London to Salt Lake City yesterday. Delta Flight 51 is a direct connection to SLC from London, and we take that one whenever we can because it's so convenient. Plus, going through customs in Salt Lake City is so much better than any other entry point we've ever had to go through.

My wife was chatting with the air hostess before the plane took off when the captain gave the flight details over the PA system. When he mentioned his name, I immediately recognized it, even though he and I were never particularly well acquainted back in the day. The air hostess suggested I write him a note which she would then take up to him. Then, partway into the flight, he walked back to our row and we had a short conversation.

Jill Witbeck (Young)

Seriously?  Then he was my pilot on that same exact flight on April 11 when I came back from London as well!  It was a great trip....and he was a great pilot!  I'm glad you recognized his name...

Kirk Alvord

Good seeing you Dave.  Its a great gig.  See alot of former Timpview classmates on fllights.  Jill send me a note next time your on board.  Fly safe and enjoy the world!

Kirk Alvord

If I know your onboard, maybe I can get you a freen upgraded pillow or something.

Hi everyone,

I read David Lamb's post and wanted to congratulate him on surviving this ordeal!  Poor kid!  Thanks for keeping us posted!  Hope you are all doing well.

Captain Kirk that is hilarious!  Extra leg room would be helpful too!  :)

Dear '79 Classmates, hope all is well with each of you and your families.  Hard to believe our 40-year reunion is coming up the summer after next.  I had an idea I wanted to float by you (pun intended), how about a class cruise for our 40th reunion?  This could either be the main reunion event or could be a side activity associated with the 40th reunion.  Karalee and I have always enjoyed cruises, especially when you are with a group of friends or family.  There are a number of inexpensive 3 or 4 night cruises that leave from Southern California that most if not all could afford, especially if we were to start planning and saving for now.  Just an idea and thought I wanted to run by everyone.  Thoughts?  Feel free to post any comments or thoughts on this subject in this Message Forum or on the Timpview '79 Facebook page.   Thanks, Dave

Hey folks, the Timpview Wikipedia page is lame and inaccurate. Those who may be interested how about we improve it? I know that there are many more notable alumni.

Bryan Chapman


You are right about the Timpview High School Wikipedia Page.  I hadn't even looked at it for several years.

It is easy to change articles in Wikipedia.  All you have to do is click "Edit The Article" button in the upper, right-hand corner of the page.

Here's a link to the Timpveiw High School Wikipedia Page:

For our class, we should at least add the T on the Mountain, referenced by the article in BYU's daily Universe.

​We loved seeing our Timpview friends at the combined THS/PHS breakfast on Saturday! It was fun to catch up with old friends and see smiling faces, even if only briefly. We’d be very interested in doing something similar in the future. Thanks to all involved in the planning and execution of the event, especially Bryan, who played such a key role in the reunions for both schools. Thanks also for the video that captures some of the highlights of the breakfast. There is no question that we grew up in a great place!

Not sure how I got be Kipling Clark Clark. If someone can fix that, I’d appreciate it. 😉

Bryan Chapman

Kip,  I just fixed the Kipling Clark (Clark) thing.  The software we use has two places where people can add their "last name."  One of the places is for women to list their maiden name.  It is kind of confusing.  Anyway, it's all fixed now. 

Thanks for all you kind words about the reunion.  I think all three events turned out very well (1) Timpview reunion, (2) combined breakfast-in-the-park, AND (3) the Provo High reunion.

I had a great time connecting with all my Provo friends I had to leave behind when they split the school. 

Thank you Kip for helping us leverage resources and information (including putting us in touch with the folks at Soldier Hallow...who were great by the way).  We appreciate you so much.

No worries, Bryan. I’ve made similar corrections on our site. Thanks for everything!

The photos from the reunion are amazing!  What a fun time and everyone looks so good!  Thank you to everyone that put in so much time organizing and hosting the event and then labeling the photos and making them available.  You are wonderful!

I am looking for Marci Davis Hill from the THS class of 1978.  Can anyone help me find her?  The reason I want to chat is rather silly - I am trying to remember the name of the Mexican fast food place from University Mall years and years ago.  It had the BEST food!  Marci and I used to go there for beef and bean tostadas piled high with lettuce, tomatoes and ranch dressing.  does anyone remember that place?  It was in the food court.

Martha Robison (Stewart)

Hi Jaunita!

I used to work at Panchito's in the food court at the mall our senoir year. Is that the place that you're looking for?I think that it was right next to the place with donuts!



11/16/22 09:43 AM #136    


Juanita Stubbs (Bushman)

Oh Martha!

You are right!  Panchito's is the name of the place!  I wish I could remember what all was on that tostada!  I have been trying to recreate them for several weeks now - my son is SICK of eating my samples! - and wish I knew the recipe or the owners names.  They had a daughter a year or two older than us - I feel like her name is Jennifer, but I may be wrong.  They were in our ward, Pleasant View 3rd, and I think they lived in the condos on Canyon Road.  Anyway, thanks for responding!  Be sure to tell me if you remember anything else.  Message me here, or email me directly at  Thanks, Martha!  Oh, the good old days!
