Happy Father’s Day

6a00e550081576883401157043ef39970c-320wiThis year, about 80 percent of Americans will be celebrating Father’s Day.

I hope you’ll be able to share an activity with your dad if you live close enough to get together. If your dad lives far away, maybe you’ll be able to talk to him through Skype or Facetime.

I’m missing my dad, Minor H. Slingsby, today. He was an important figure in my life. Carefully watching every penny, my dad taught me to be an informed, alert consumer. I’m a personal finance writer because of him.

Here’s a tribute I wrote to my dad.

So happy Father’s Day to the dads of Americans and their kids. About 60 percent of men aged 15 and older are fathers, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
