In addition on every Thursday for nine years Mr. Slack went to Panera in Salisbury, MD to pick up donations which he then delivered to various veterans’ homes as well as the American Legion for veterans to enjoy. He was an avid golfer and loved his NY Giants, even though they usually disappointed him on game day, but he never gave up.
