Thoughts and prayers for the family, may he live always in our hearts and memories. Never forget that devilish grin, sparkle in the eyes and the dimples when he got a good joke in! Here's to no more pain, no more burdens, and just the joy of being reunited with family and friends that have gone on before! <3

Rand Preston was a person who would give assistance to any one he felt needed some. He never said 'no' to any one who asked for his assistance.

He will be fondly remembered by all of the staff of Camden High School who were fortunate enough to have known him, call him their friend, and he always had friendly stories, comments, etc. to share with his friends. He will never be forgotten.

Blessings to his family and loved ones. Rand will always be remembered
fondly by those who knew him, called him 'FRIEND' and always had a story to tell. May you rest in peace and known that you are a terrific person who will be missed by your friends, loved ones, and your friends.

Sincerely, Maureen Dourney

I am sad to hear of Rand's passing, been his neighbor for over 30 years and he was a good man and I got along well with him. Won't be quite the same around here with him being gone.
