Submitted by Jamie-Yasmin Slaughter - on 10/1/2021 ..... Boy I didn't expect to be doing this today, got a phone call from my brother Steve Slaughter that our dad Jimmy Slaughter passed away either last night or today. Very unexpected, very sad. Too new to know anything about any arrangements, but I will post that information as it comes in. Going to miss him a lot. This sucks.
