He moved to Marble Falls, Texas, in 2006 and quickly adopted it as home. It here where he met his wife, Pam, in 2012, and they were married in 2015. Preston had many friends wherever he went. He was a huge sports fan, his favorite teams being the LSU Tigers and the New Orleans Saints. He also played golf and ran in the Crescent City Classic for 20 years. He loved music and New Orleans food.

He is survived by his wife, Pam Hickman; stepsons, Vince Burrough, Trey Dancer, and Dylan Dancer; mother, Helen Hickman of Marble Falls; sister, Mary Starrak and husband Jim of Pleasanton, Texas; nieces, Bonnie Starrak and partner Kyle, and Jayme Starrak, both in Austin, to whom he was Uncle P; great nephew KJ Kovach; many adored aunts and uncles and cousins, as well as cherished friends.
