Dr. Jeff Flowers

Bluebonnet Youth Ranch has established the Jefferson Flowers Memorial Fund in honor of Dr. Jeff Flowers Jr., a long-time proponent and active member of the Bluebonnet Youth Ranch community, according to a news release.

Flowers died at age 90 on Sept. 3. He was a prominent member of the Victoria community before retiring in North Carolina later in his life. The former rancher and founder of the first emergency room at Citizens Medical Center was instrumental in the success of the Bluebonnet Youth Ranch Celebrity Golf Tournament. Along with Rafael “Ricky” De La Garza, he assembled the EMS drivers used annually for the celebrity tournament. His legacy will live on through the memorial fund, according to the news release.

The Jefferson Flowers Memorial Fund will allocate funds to fulfill the needs of the children at the ranch.

Those interested in making donations can visit www.bluebonnetyouthranch.org/donate/ or mail contributions to P.O. Box 90, Yoakum, Texas 77995.
