PRESTON, Sean Kurtis

With deepest sorrow, we announce that Sean Preston, our beloved son, brother, family member and friend passed away on Tuesday, June 15, 2021, at Algonquin Grace Residential Hospice in Huntsville after a short battle with cancer at the age of 40.  Sean was born on July 24, 1980, in Huntsville to parents David and Gail Preston.

Humourous, athletic, artistic, hard working and intelligent, are just some of the words that evoke memories in those who knew Sean.  He could build and program computers as well as repair anything with an engine; testing the speed of his cars was one of his many passions.

Sean had a deep love of family and faith, values that came naturally to Sean. Those who knew Sean, even just a little, can attest to this and have lost a shining light in their lives.  He loved being around family and those he called friends.  Sean had an energy that with even just one encounter, you would remember him for life.

Love will light the way for his family as they mourn his passing. He is the beloved son of David and Gail Preston, friend and brother to Andrea (Brad), Carlin (Brandon), Brett (Eva) and the best funcle to Gabriel, Arya, Kieran, Kassandra and Kinley.  Sean will be remembered by his many aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family far and wide.  He is predeceased in death by his Grandfathers Jack and Eugene, Grandmothers Betty and Pauline.  Survived by Grandmother Edna Preston.    Your memory will forever be with us.

A private family funeral service will be held on Friday, June 18, 2021 at Billingsley Funeral Home in Huntsville at 2 p.m.  The funeral service will be live streamed for those unable to attend due to Covid-19 restrictions.  As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations can be made to Algonquin Grace Hospice or the Charity of your choice.  Messages of condolence can be left at

“Those we love don’t go away.  They walk beside us every day.  Unseen, unheard, but always near.  Still loved, still missed and forever dear.”
