James Mitchell Preston, 69, of Salisbury


SALISBURY — James Mitchell Preston, a native of Burlington, Vt., and a resident of Salisbury, Vt., passed away on Feb. 10, 2024, at the age of 69.

James was mechanically savvy and collected antique firearms and cars, which included Studebakers, Jeeps, and various motorcycles. He was an excellent cook, and loved to grill, often times in the rain. There was a frequent BBQ at the Preston home. He also made gumbo, chili, and always had a pot of something simmering on the stove. He lent a hand to friends and family whom he cared for, but most of all he loved his wife and daughter.

He is survived by wife, Jamie Preston; daughter, Tori Preston and her husband, Juan Gutierrez; and grandson, Preston Julio Gutierrez. He was preceded in death by his parents, Mitchell and Doris Preston.

Calling hours will be on Saturday, Feb. 24, from 10 a.m. until noon at Sanderson Funeral Home in Middlebury Vermont.
