I am so very saddened by Preston’s passing. He was a huge part of my life and I will never forget the fun we had and the music we made. A true talent and my friend…”You’re My Favorite Memory of All.”

I met Preston through other friends that play the guitar. Preston was always very friendly when I stopped by and I enjoyed listening to Preston play the guitar. He was a great picker. Preston will be missed. Sorry for your loss praying for you and your family.

I was saddened to hear the passing of Preston. He was an excellent luthier and repaired my old acoustic guitar which I thought was unrepairable. He was always a joy to visit with. He will be missed by many.
