Randy Boehmer has Spread the
Word of Jesus in
Over 22 States
with 4 Mules + and 2 Dogs at 4 mph
By Walt Caldwell
Randy Boehmer didnít exactly say his
home is Ashfork, Arizona, but thatís where he has his
post office box.
A taxidermist by trade, he lost his parents in 1991
and his wife to cancer in 1998. It didnít give him his
belief in God. It is pretty obvious he had the belief,
but the events changed the way he looked at life and his
mission in life.
He told a reporter he and his siblings were cleaning out his
parentís garage in 1991, when his sister said whatever they
didnít want they could ďcan just take to the dump.Ē It was
at that point he realized that all of the possessions his
parents had worked so hard to obtain really meant
nothing. In the end they were disposable.
Then in 1998 after his wife died, he started reading the
Bible and that brought Jesus into his heart.
When I first met Frank and Jesse, Dick and Jack and another
mule, along with Shep and Proverb, his dogs, on the Rat Farm
Road, behind the Inter Mountain Fairgrounds in
McArthur. The mules were tied to a fence, two down and two
up, relaxed and not overly curious. The dogs were polite.
Boehmer wasnít home. I didnít cross the roped off area.
