Richard A. Preston, age 75, of the Brewstertown Community passed away on May 26, 2020.
He was born on May 11, 1945 in Dayton, Ohio, and enjoyed living a full life between Texas and Tennessee where he finally retired to back in 1991. When he was a young and able man he loved to fish and it was nothing new to find him on the bank of a river or lake late at night looking forward to that fight with a Catfish. As he ventured on in life he loved gardening, flowers, and watching the beautiful birds as they would visit his feeders right outside the window. He truly enjoyed having the family join him every year to celebrate the 4th of July with fireworks, both homemade and acquired at the local stands. He began a new tradition after retiring of making homemade peanut brittle at Christmas Time; we ALL looked forward to that sweet gift. He was surrounded by loved ones when he passed.
He was preceded in death by his parents, David B. Preston and Violet (Brewster) Preston and special nieces Katrina Duckworth and Shelly
He is survived by his loving companion Wanda Brewster; sons Trask C. Preston and Kevin Berry; sister, Virginia Lee of the Brewstertown Community; brother, Boyd Preston and wife Jeanie of Kaufman, TX; loving nieces, Kelly Lawless, Cindy Preston, Happy Lee and husband Corey, and Gidget Preston; nephew, Chuck Preston; grandchildren Stephanie Bustamante and husband Matthew, Kaylie Coburn, Heather Preston, and Arin Preston; 9 great-grandchildren and numerous great nieces and nephews.
A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date and will be held in the Brewstertown Community.
