Uncle Preston, someone so special will never be forgotten. You will be remembered for your great sense of humor, your generosity, and your extraordinary ability as a natural-born storyteller. We have come to know and love you through our dad's (Wayne's) stories of the two of you growing up and other memories through the years. What a wonderful life you lived and a great example of hard work and perseverance! Your warm, cheerful voice and smile will be how I remember you. And I will never forget how you and my dad could talk on the phone for hours at a time, lifting one another through the hard times and finding joy in the celebrations life brought. You will be missed! ~Debbie Driscoll Ronneburg

Uncle Preston was always the comic relief whenever he was around, I had just spoke to him on Facebook two nights befire he passed, we were talking about nursing school and he was encouraging me to push forward and not give up. I will truly miss him.

We've been friends for a long time and I will miss my friend, Preston. We perpetrated a lot of mischief together which leaves me with many fond memories. God bless you and keep you!
