    bob and I are saddened by the passing of our good friend Dennis Preston. Dennis was such a great person. we were neighbours for 25 years on baird st.I know he has left his family with many great memories.

  2. Dennis was a good friend to the Bruton family for many many years. He was especially supportive of our brother John and we thank him for that. I know that he will be sorely missed by all who knew him. My deepest sympathies to his family.

  4. Dear Colleen, Mike and Steve and families. I just heard about your Dad passing! Please know that I am thinking about you as a family and that I know your wonderful memories of your Dad will be with you forever. Great picture of Dennis and I will always remember him as being a wonderful Dad and boy did he ever love you kids. I was 13 years old when I started to babysit you kids.

    Dear Mike, Steve, Colleen and families,
    We were so sorry to hear of Dennis’ passing. He was a kind, generous and loving man. I have many good memories of all that he did for our family over the years – Sunday school, youth leader, positive person. He gave of himself selflessly, particularly to our brother, John.
    He always had a smile and kind words whenever I saw him over the years..
    I know that you will all miss him terribly, but know that many will remember him fondly and are thankful that he was part of our lives.
    Liz and Greg
