Preston worked for 37 years in the pot ash mines, Kerr—McGee, New Mexico Potash, and Mississippi Potash after retiring from there he spent 6 years as maintenance for the Lea Regional Airport. He loved to do woodwork, making all sorts of different things like quilt racks, tables, rocking chairs, just whatever struck him or something someone would ask him for. Preston had a great love of all kinds of music. Especially Elvis Presley, Hank Williams, any classic rock, or country.

Preston was preceded in death by his parents Alton and Margie, his loving wife Brenda, and a grandchild Christopher Rollins.
