Meet the Staff
As one of our newest team members, Mark is enjoying learning the ropes and meeting customers. He does a little bit of everything around here so you might see him delivering parts, working on something in the back or helping customers at the counter. Mark believes you should shop at D&R because not only can you get nearly any part for any automotive need, but service is delivered with a friendly smile.
Born in Klamath Falls, lived in Central Point until high school graduation and spend my summers in Klamath Falls with family. I joined the US Air Force in 1995, retired, and moved back to Klamath Falls after 20 years of service. I have been working on cars, trucks, and farm equipment for the last 30+ years.
JT has been with us for a few months now and we love having him on our team! Born and raised in Klamath Falls, he knows our community well. From working with hoses and cables to the front desk, JT does a little bit of everything around here and is always learning something new.
“I think people should choose D&R because we are more personal than the big box stores,” says JT. “It’s laid back and a pretty fun place to be.”
I was born and raised in Klamath Falls , graduated from Klamath Union High School in 1978. After that, I worked at Jeld-Wen of Oregon for 21 years, 17 of which were helping in maintenance and fabrication. I worked in construction for about 10 years following that for around 10 years, all over the Klamath area. I enjoy working on our personal vehicles and spending time tinkering in shop, which I have been doing since the age of 6. Also, I like to go camping, fishing, and spending time with my family.
Celynda has been part of our D&R team since April 2019. When asked what her favorite part of working her is, she states, “It’s always a great time around here and I enjoy helping out whenever possible!” Originally from California, Celynda moved to Klamath in 1997 and graduated from OIT with two degrees. She loves supporting and encouraging local businesses and loves to work for one!
Kelly has grown up in Oregon and has worked in the parts industry for 11 years! He is extremely knowledgeable and is ready to set your vehicles up for success with the right parts at the right price. Even though Kelly has been with us for a short amount of time, he already loves his coworkers and developing relationships with our customers.
When asked why people should choose D&R for their automotive needs, Kelly said, “D&R is great because we are locally owned, which keeps money in the community!
