Thank you for this post – It came up on top when I googled Preston to see what the media was up to. Thanks also for the links to KATU and the Oregonian. As a member of Lake Bible, I can testify that he impacted the lives and touched the hearts not only the youth he pastored but so many of the rest of us. Dear Lord, he is with You now, but we will miss him for a long time.

I had the privilege to know and work with Preston on the Grounds crew here at Multnomah. He was truly one of those rare souls that we can look back and say that we were fortunate to know. I now find myself walking around the campus and thinking of the things that he worked on. I am still shocked and saddened by his passing – I imagine that it will hurt for a long time. I do have some great memories of Preston and laugh when I think of some of the fun times (Amashlerdawn!!!) which were numerous! Preston Newby, you will be missed indeed.

I had the priviledge to be one of Preston’s teachers in Jr. High School in Santa Fe New Mexico. Preston always had the joy of the Lord showing through in all he did. He was delight and will be missed dearly. May God continue to bless the family the left behind. He was truely a testimony of how we should all live our lives.
