Bob Presley


Dear Friends:

I regret to announce that I must change the date of my auction to November 30, 2014, at 12 Noon Pacific, due to the untimely passing of my older and beloved brother Bob Presley.

Kimberly and I have spent the last week here in Arkansas, as soon as we heard he had fallen ill, and have been with our family throughout this sad time. We will return to California soon but simply cannot provide the complete, quality presentation you deserve from Don Presley Auction by November 16. So, we’ve decided to move the auction two weeks to November 30, at my gallery in Santa Ana.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for understanding this difficult decision.

If you’d like to learn more about Bob, please click here to read his obituary.

Thank you all for your support.

- Don Presley

I hope you will be too.
