In Memoriam: Dick Ranian
A native of Jerusalem, Dick Ranian lived a full life in Oregon. Travel was Dick’s life long passion. Throughout his tenure, he was recognized for his ability to custom plan itineraries all over the world and often, he would personally escort them.  His travels took to him to exotic destinations that are bound to ignite one’s imagination, from the rugged terrain of the Khyber Pass to the steppes of Central Asia and from Antarctica to Australia’s Great Outback. He crossed the world numerous times and in the process, he catered to three and four generations of travelers. His legacy of providing excellent service and knowledge in planning travel is now being carried out by his niece Ani and her staff.
