Very Sorry to hear. I only knew Preston for a short time. He was a good brother in Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, yes well pleased rather to be absent from the body to be present with the Lord. NKJV He will be dearly missed. Sorry for the family's loss. God Bless you Preston and yours. We will meet again Brother. Love you

I am saddened to hear of the sudden passing of Preston. Although I knew him only in business, he was a kind and friendly gentleman with whom I enjoyed meeting. To his loved ones, I offer my sincere condolences and that you find peace in knowing that he is with the lord. Words I have heard which stay with me in times of such sorrow are as follows... 'before we wake, we cannot know that what we dreamed does not exist. Before we die, we cannot know that death is not the greatest joy'. Godspeed Preston.

I am very saddened to learn of Preston's passing. We knew each other as Ambassadors at the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, he was always there to greet people with a smile and a twinkle in his eye. I enjoyed spending time with him over the years. My very sincere condolences.

Preston was a man of integrity, determination and kindness. He was a champion for our veterans and a compassionate community member. Along with the legacy he left through his service to youth in the Civil Air Patrol, he also leaves a permanent memorial at the NH State Veteran's Cemetery to those who sacrificed their life during the war on terror. Preston's positive, can-do attitude will be missed, but not forgotten by those whose lives he touched. God Bless...

The sudden news of Preston's departure was a shock to most of us that knew him. He will be deeply missed and never forgotten. I will honor Preston's memory by staying true to God and honoring my wife. Preston was a great friend and mentor to me. Rest in Peace and save me a seat at the banquet table.

It was so nice to attend BCC and be in a small group with Preston and Karen. Preston clearly was seen as a disciple of Jesus through his service, his compassion and his love for others. We pray for comfort for Karen and the others in his family, and the assurance of a big reunion someday.

Preston became a friend as he "brought me into" Civil Air Patrol as a chaplain. I am deeply saddened by his unexpected passing. May his memory be for a blessing. Chaplain Gary Atkins

Preston was always a gentleman, warm and giving. We were part of a group that shred rooms during our Castleton years. It wasn't until a few years ago we reconnected through social media. Prestons frequent posts showed how busy he was helping others. I was amazed at how much he able to give to others. I'll miss him.

I've very sorry to learn of Preston's passing. I met him years ago when our offices were in the Jefferson Mill as part of the Amoskeag Business Incubator.

He was a stand up guy! Always very polite, well spoken, hard working and helpful.

Had fun interviewing him on my radio show about the Civil Air Patrol, too. Here's the link if you'd like to listen again.

Having just lost my father suddenly on June 22nd, you have my deepest and most sincere sympathies. May the presence of God Almighty bring you peace and comfort.
