Happy Father’s Day

Best wishes on Father’s Day. I hope you and your loved ones will have a great day with your plans for brunch or dinner, an outing, and/or gift giving.

My dad, Minor H. Slingsby, passed away in 1990 at age 80. A farmer, he died of non-Hodgkins lymphoma, which is linked to pesticide exposure. Since he had longevity in his family, we expected that he would be with us longer.

Although my dad was a stormy guy, I still miss him very much. He was a big figure in my life. I got two of my interests from him, consumerism and journalism.

To remember him today, here are some photos from his life:
