Randy Preston

February 23, 1959 to October 4, 2014


It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to a remarkable husband, father, grandfather, brother, father-in-law and friend. With his family at his side, Randy passed unexpectedly but peacefully.

Randy was born and raised in Terrace, the youngest child of Bill and Donalda Preston. He followed his father’s footsteps into the logging industry; however, after 30 years, he became a Machine Operator for Nechako Northcoast Contracting. Randy enjoyed fishing, hunting, 4x4ing, and making people laugh.

Randy leaves behind to cherish his memory, his wife Valerie, children Caitlin (Sean), Jonah (Kirsten), and Zachary; grandchildren Paxten and Tucker; sister Linda, nieces, nephews and many friends. He will be dearly missed.

The family would like to thank Dr. Lim, Dr. Meyburg, Dr. Moolman, the ICU/Emergency department staff (Serge, Priscilla, Donna, Bella, Anya, Emily, Leslie Ann), for all their support and kindness; and the First Responders and Emergency Personnel for their heroic efforts.
