What Happened To Trudy Busch Valentine's Husband, John Fries?
Both Trudy Busch Valentine and John Fries are in a second marital relationship with one another. Moreover, they both share the common grief of losing their late ex-spouses.
Valentine and Fries are both in their sixties. Valentine was born on 1 June 1957, making her 64 years old as of 2022, and Fries was born on 18 April 1953, making him 68 years old as of 2022. The couple shares just four years of age gap with each other.
John Dee Valentine, Valentine's late spouse, was her former husband. She shared six children with her late husband: late Matthew Valentine, Blake Randolph Valentine, Captain August Busch Valentine, Christina Valentine, John Dee Valentine, and Stephen Peter Valentine. Trudy lost her elder son Matthew in 2020 to a road accident.
Valentine was single for 13 years after John died from cancer in 2002. She, however, met her current husband, John Fries, in 2015, and although it is unclear exactly when they got married, it happened. It was also a second marriage for John Fries. He was previously wed to his late wife Janis O Fries, who passed away on 21 March 2014. Fries has two children, John Fries III and Julie Forrest, from his previous marriage.
Besides losing their ex-spouses, both have also lost their parents. While John's mother passed away in 1998 and his father in 2014, Trudy lost her father in 1989 and her mother in 2016
As of the present, Valentine and Fries run a Missouri ranch together.
