Maurice 'Skip' Edward Preston
Born July 7, 1944, in Spencer, Ia., to Maurice and Catherine Preston, Skip was lovingly received by his Lord and Savior on July 4, 2012, at the age of 67, in the presence of his family. His battle with leukemia was hard-fought. He is survived by the love of his life; his beautiful wife of 47 years, Cindy.
A graduate of University of Northern Iowa, Skip moved his family to Mesa, Ariz. in 1972, starting Preston Realty with his father and brother. Skip loved spending time with his family, golfing with friends, and at their cabin in Heber.
He was a strong Christian man and was proud of his two sons, Chad and Paul; his daughters-in-law, Monica and Heather; and his six grandchildren: Jessica, Jake, Meagan, Emma, Spencer and Ethan.
Skip will be most remembered by his fun-loving spirit, his dedication to his family/friends, and his devotion to the Lord. He will be dearly missed.
A memorial service will be held in his honor 10 a.m., Saturday, July 7, 2012, at Central Christian Church in Mesa, Ariz. In lieu of flowers contributions can be made in Skip's name to Legacy Adventures Ministry at 1122 S. Greenfield Road in Mesa, AZ 85206
