Alvin Slaughter

have a memory or condolence to add?


March 22, 2020

I never had the honor of meeting Mr. Alvin Slaughter, however, I do have the privilege of knowing his son, Gerry. Gerry would frequently talk about his father. It was obvious from his conversations that Gerry loved his father very much and his father was a special person.
The Council of Refined Gentlemen send their deepest and most sincere sympathies to the family of Mr. Alvin Slaughter, and to our Fellow Refined Gentleman, Gerry.
