Passed peacefully away at the Corner Brook Long Term Care Facility on Tuesday, May 2, 2012, Harold Preston in his 96th year. Harold served his Country in the Royal Navy during the Second World War and never forgot the suffering he saw and the loss of many of his friends. A number of times he narrowly escaped death and wondered why. Years later he heard the Gospel and embraced the Lord Jesus Christ as his Saviour. When he passed away he knew that he was ready to meet his Lord. Harold was born November 27, 1916 in Liverpool, England to the late Charles and Elizabeth Preston and was predeceased by his wife Cora (Gardner) on September 19, 2000. He will be sadly missed by his 2 daughters: Jeannette Saunders of Liverpool, England and Dorne (Edward) Payne of Corner Brook; 6 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and 3 great-great-grandchildren.
