Preston E. Burchard, 92, of Harrisonburg, died Monday, Jan. 28, 2013, at Rockingham Memorial Hospital.
 
Preston was born in Ames, Iowa, on April 22, 1920, a son of the late Edwin and Fern Preston Burchard.
 
He was a World War II veteran, serving in the U.S. Army in Europe with the Army Corps of Engineers and as a chaplain’s assistant. Preston was a member of Wakeman’s Grove Church of the Brethren and had worked in many areas of C&P Telephone in Washington, D.C., including assignments directly involved with several presidential inaugurations.
 
Preston is survived by his wife, Nancy Burchard; daughter, Duffy Regan of Sydney, Australia; three sons, Edwin Burchard and Robert Burchard, both of Columbia, Mo., and Jonathan Burchard, of Mechanicsburg, Pa.; sister, Glendon Penske of Schenectady, N.Y.; brother, Lowell Burchard of Arlington, Va.; nine grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

In lieu of flowers, we invite you to do something kind for your neighbors in an anonymous and God-honoring way, just like Preston would.
