Zane C. Preston, 79, of Watertown, passed away on Thursday, March 15 at home surrounded by his loving family.
Zane was born on May 8, 1938, in North Bend, Wisconsin, son of Orville (Mike) and Margaret (O'Hearn) Preston. He spent most of his childhood in Alma Center. He married Kathleen Memmel on July 28, 1962 at St. Philip Neri Church in Milwaukee. Together they had three children; Michael (Jolene) Preston, and twins Mark (Michele Vento) Preston and Michele Preston. Zane and Kathy were married for 55 years. They were blessed with nine grandchildren: Andrew (Kristina) Haines of Appleton, Zachary Kickbusch of Appleton, Branden Wise of Madison, Joshua Preston of Jefferson, Ryan Preston of Madison, , Tyler (Leila) Preston of Florida, Austin (Jessica) Preston of Hustisford, Amy (Andrew) Besag of Wauwautosa, and Samantha Vento of Milwaukee. Zane was also blessed to know his five great-grandchildren: Kareena Behling, Preston Haines, Jesse Preston, Klara Besag, and Addison Haines.
Zane's passion was for old cars. Many old cars could be seen parked on his driveway over the years. He owned and operated King Auto Body in Watertown for many years. He also dearly loved spending time with his wife, kids, grandkids, and great grandkids on camping trips all over the state and as far west as Wyoming. He and Kathy also spent a great deal of time in Mexico during the colder months of Wisconsin.
He is also survived by his sister Cynthia Blaschke of Portland, Oregon, sister-in law Alyce Preston of Wisconsin Rapids, other sisters-in law, brothers-in-law, and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his son, Michael in 2013, brother Al, brother Dan, and his parents.
The family would like to thank St. Luke's Hospital and Compassionate Care Hospice Services for their care.
