  1. How sad that Preston left this earth too early. I’ll truly miss his inspiration & common sense on “Mountain Men”. I’m sure his absence has left a big hole in many hearts. RIP sir.

    1. Wow I just found out that mr. Preston passed away I love mountain men and I especially love Preston’s friend May the angels in heaven shine down on his head and I hope his friend will continue on in honor of his name

    2. It is only the good people in this life that get taken away form us long before their due date, it is a shame that a good down to Earth good wholesome man has departed our lives, I am 70 yrs of age and down under here in New Zealand, and I just love this old time basic turn of the century series, where a life is so hard earned it is brilliant, I am so saddened that a true Blue friend has departed Eustace’s life as a true friend like that is so hard to find and of course his wife and Children, rest in peace Preston you were a joy to watch.

  2. Just became aware of Mountain Men. Almost done with Season 6. So saddened by the loss of Preston. Could tell by his demeanor what a humble, knowledgeable and great man he was. For me his loss is a tragedy. These men have lived the dream I’ve dreamed which life has killed as the song from Les Mis. goes. God Bless You All!

  3. Just started watching mountain men about one year ago
    Love the characters in the show.
    Farewell to Preston.
    He came over as being a nice person.
    Be at peace.

  4. How can you all be asking for a Go Fund Account when Mr. Preston’s net worth was 2.5 millon.
    Does that make sense?

    1. That’s what I was wondering. I loved Preston, been watching Mountain Men, off & on for yrs. But, for some reason, just now found out he had passed. So sad.????

    2. Well, millions of people really enjoyed their show.Preston and Eustace brought happiness and enjoyment to the viewers over the years.To share and show their gratitude ,the fund was set up.I do not think a law was broken in collecting money.
      The last time I checked the United States is still a free country.

  5. To me, and I feel sure to Eustace and the family, Preston was a priceless man. A man of gentleness, great character, honesty, loyal to family, friends, God, and the earth. The question some have posed about a “Go Fund Me” account usually is to satisfy tax issues and lawyer issues a family faces at the time like this in order to even settle an estate in the first place. And, also I think, what right do we have to ask that question? Let us all be as forgiving and trusting as Preston was of others and the world will truly be a better place. Eustace, my heart breaks for the loss of your friend. May you cherish his memories until you join him in a better workshop later on.

      May Preston R. I. P.

  7. My brother died suddenly of cancer. He also was “worth ” a few million dollars. Lawyers, taxes ,loans,etc. will eat through your ‘estate’ faster than a hungry termite through a rotten log. Don’t judge if you don’t know the facts.
