Uncle Erik and Aunt Chris weren't actual blood relatives but they might as well have been. They were an integral part of my upbringing and huge influences in my life. Sadly, Aunt Chris didn't live to see the creation of Stillwater Ranch, but Uncle Erik did. He was a big supporter through encouraging words and generous financial donations over the years. Even after his death in 2020, his support was felt here. His children asked for donations to SR in lieu of flowers because he loved this place and the impact it has on the lives of Veterans and their families. Some of those donations were spent on a memorial bench which will be a constant reminder of these people who made a difference in my life and ultimately on the ranch I went on to create, in part because of them. We are so thankful for the blessing of Aunt Chris and Uncle Erik.
We are a nonprofit ranch for Veterans, Servicemembers, and their families. We provide ongoing programming around comradery, alternative therapies, family support, training and education.
