67, of Mesa, Arizona passed away on July 4, 2012. Born July 7, 1944 in Spencer, Iowa 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. A graduate of University of Northern Iowa, Skip moved his family to Mesa in 1972 starting Preston Realty with his father and brother. Skip loved spending time with his family, golfing with friends, and spending time at their cabin in Heber. 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. He is survived by the love of his life; his beautiful wife of 47 years, Cindy. 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 6 grandchildren - Jessica, Jake, Meagan, Emma, Spencer, and Ethan. A memorial service will be held in his honor 10am, Saturday in the chapel at Central Christian Church in Mesa.
