In Loving Memory,

Daniel Taylor Brumfield, M.D.

2/6/30 to 2/11/13
You will forever be in our hearts!

Here are a few photos I have come up with to start my Dad's memory page!  I will be adding more as they come in.  Please enjoy and take a moment to share a story of how Daniel Brumfield touched your life.  It would mean so much, to us all in the Brumfield family.  

We miss him greatly!  He spent his life helping people, whether it be in medicine, in coping with life, in riding and showing horses or in just about everything you could imagine.  He would even save a wounded bird or an insect, even a mouse that he had for 10 years, and a baby dove that he and my mom raised and had for 13 years!  

He was a writer, from poetry to writing songs to full manuscripts.  He spent his life learning and had endless research on yawning and sighing!  He was an outstanding Del Mar Race Track physician
, a football player, a hot rod enthusiast, an inventor, a loving husband to our mom  but most of all the best dad in the world!  

His horses loved him.  Anyone who witnessed Dan working with a horse, could see a respect between man and horse that was beyond magic.   He had a way with horses like no other.  I will never forget, when we visited Bommala Bobby in her retirement she turned her head toward my dad when he called out her name and then she walked over for the special under the jaw scratch that my dad always gave her upon greeting her!

Enjoy viewing this page decorated with a ranch sunset that I took on February 15, 2013, a view that our dad took in so many times, the view that is the reason behind buying the ranch upon the bluff, his ranch.  Scroll through some photos old and new, and then underneath play a song that he said was Dan and Deanne's song.  At the end is a  place where you can leave a special comment.  Thank you so much for being a part of our lives, my dad's life, the love continues!

When My Undle David passed in 2006, Dara and I drove my Dad to his services in Aptos.  My dad really changed as he was so broken up at the loss of his brother.

I put this picture up of his Granddaughter Rylee because I dressed her up and took photos for an album as a gift to my Dad for Father's Day!  He really loved this picture!!!

A Great Grandpa!  He taught Rylee so much!

Our all time favorite photo taken when Dad was 19 years old, with his hotrod!

My mom left, Aunt Barbara and Uncle Paul and it looks like my dad is explaining something or an idea sitting outside of our front porch.  The ranch house was red and other than that looks pretty much the same except for the fact that my dad pulloed all of the shrubs and ivy from it.They must have just bought the place then.

Dad, actress Corrine Calvine who at the time was married to Farron (John Bromfield) my dad's cousin and Uncle David, these photos are priceless!  Cute little black spaniel!
