Gary and Pat Madden, his sons and Lanielle, his wife took Preston's ashes over to Matagorda Island and spread them on the Island at the Lighthouse where he loved to be as a kid. Gary had to secure permission to be able to let us take his ashes there and spread them there, since it’s a Federal preserve now.
Preston would tell the kids when he was young he would take every chance to spend time at the lighthouse, the lighthouse keeper was related somehow.
