Michael Wayne Preston of Madisonvile, KY

HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. - Michael Wayne Preston of Madisonvile, KY was born May 28, 1960 in Madisonville KY to Gerald and Margaret (Daniels) Preston. His family moved to Imlay City, Michigan where he grew up until the family moved back to Madisonville, where he graduated high school. Michael joined the United States Army when he was seventeen, and was stationed in Korea where he maintained large Army vehicles.

Upon returning to KY, he met Theresa (Fullerton), and it was love at first sight as they eloped to Sweetwater, Tennessee 31 years ago. In 1985, Michael and his family moved back to Michigan, living in Detroit, Hazel Park and Ferndale before settling in Royal Oak in 1992.

For 15 years, Michael was a technical photographer at Capitol Reproductions in Madison Heights, MI. In 2000 he joined American Axle in Hamtramck, MI, where he enjoyed assembling the various drive train products manufactured there.

Michael's passion was running. Having run four marathons in Alaska, New York City and Detroit, as well as several other half-marathons and shorter races, he was a familiar sight running around Royal Oak and a frequent at Hanson's Running Shop. He was even featured in a Detroit Free Press article entitled "Running Through the Pain".

In addition to running, Michael loved classic cars, fishing, playing the guitar, drawing, and working in his yard. In 2012, he began volunteering his time at Beaumont Hospital, where he was a favorite in the volunteer program.

Michael is survived by his wife Theresa; children, Trenna Helms (Troy, MI) and Michael T. (Leah); his grandchildren, Kayleen, Elizabeth, Raeanne, Desi Rose, Devin, and James. Michael's mother Margaret also survives, as well as his siblings, Rick Preston, Vickie Mings and Tammy Littlepage.
