John Henry Brumhall was a beloved member of our organization, Wild West Jeep Tours. He was passionate about sharing our Sonoran Desert in his position as a professional desert Tour Guide. Always popular with our tourists, he was often requested to be their guide of choice. It certainly didn't hurt that he was very good looking and approachable. His sense of humor was legendary and his kindness was felt by all! Our hearts go out to Sandy, Beth, Susan, Clayton, and Darin. Please know there will always be holes in our hearts for our tall, cowboy hat-wearing fellow Tour Guide and friend!
