Candlelight Ranch Founders
The Barr Family
Don spent years as a summer camp counselor and feels right at home sharing his love for the outdoors with special needs kids and their families at Candlelight Ranch. His connection to the land and nature is also reflected in Don's vocation as a real estate broker and investor.
Don believes it is impossible to improve on the peace and magic found in nature and wants every child to have the opportunity to experience just that. "We can make this world a better place by teaching our children to respect the land, as well as one another."
She helped organize the first Board of Directors and served as President of the Board for five years. She was instrumental in establishing the early programs and reaching out to the first organizations to visit Candlelight Ranch. Jeri’s dream was to offer a place where children with chronic or terminal illnesses in particular, could rest and heal and enjoy the beauties of nature. She will be missed by all that knew her.
Randy is an Asset Manager and is married to Melissa, with five children and five grandchildren. "As I have gotten older, I realize that the really rewarding things for me are family, friends, giving back to my community, and lending a helping hand to those who need it."
