Passing of a legend in Belle Plaine

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

A quick note to everyone who was at the Belle Plaine photo shoot a few weeks ago.

Ron Preston passed away late last week, it was evidently not expected. He was in Kansas City and according to a friend with the Lincoln Highway Association, Ron was having knee surgery and did not survive the operation.

For those who did not attend, an image of his vintage gas stations is here:

Thus, your pictures of him at the station from a few weeks ago take on some added meaning and significance.

I have a rough idea as to the future of the station….it is part of a trust for his granddaughters.

Here's a link to his obituary: http://thegazette.com/obituaries/preston-ronald-d-tiny/

Please keep Ron's family in your prayers
