Baron Tenbos was the kind and just ruler just inside Utah.
He invited Ryan and J.B. to stay with him for a day, and not only fed them, but allowed them to stock up on food and water for the trip. He really wanted J.B. to stay behind for a month to help him refurbish his antique gun collection, but J.B.s too determined to make it to Seattle and meet up with Trader. Baron Tenbos was killed by one of his Step Sons's, but the killing doesn't go un-avenged. Ryan kills both of them. (Road Wars}
