Preston E. Burner passed away on May 10, 2000


Through the 1980's and 90's Preston was a pioneer in the Masonic computer age. He collected large amounts of computerized Masonic information and through the Hiram's Oasis BBS he ran from the basement of his home in Vienna, VA made it available to thousands across the country. The Hiram's Oasis BBS made it possible for Masonic files, pictures, information and ideas to be easily shared and exchanged.

Preston shared his computer knowledge and helped educate fellow Nobles at the monthly computer club meetings he held at the Kena Temple for over eight years. The Kena Computer Club was founded by Preston Burner in 1987 he was club president from 1987 to1995 (8 years)

Please scroll all the way to the bottom of this web page to read about Prestons HIRAM'S OASIS Masonic Bulletin Board. Here http://www.kena.org/hirams you can find over twelve years worth of the information made available by Preston.

Preston will be missed by all but his hard work and dedication in making sure Masonic Light / information is shared easily by way of computers will live on through the Kena Computer Club and the Hiram's Oasis web site at http://Kena.org/Hirams were all the information he spent years collecting has been moved from the Hiram's Oasis BBS to the Internet where all can now receive Masonic Light Worldwide.
