Condolences

Slim was my Fathers Crosley dealership he serviced his cars! Heard so much about Slim thank you all for sharing so we all can remember laughter! God Bless

Slim was also a lifetime member of the Experimental Aircraft Association and was active in the local Ashland chapter where we had so much fun flying to "fly-ins" around the region. He really loved his Piper Cub. I first met Slim in 1950 there at Albright Welding where he welded up a broken handle on a chain saw for me. For the next 69 years, I would always consider Slim as one of my best buddies as we did lots of things together.
