Obituary: Slant/Fin founder Melvin Dubin
Melvin Dubin, 92, founder and chairman emeritus of Slant/Fin Corp., died Sept. 17. Dubin started Slant/Fin in 1949 and through his energetic spirit and determination, the company grew into a successful manufacturer of baseboard heating equipment and boilers. He was a family man who always thought of Slant/Fin as part of his family. Dubin was a generous supporter of many charitable causes.
He is survived by his son Adam (now president and chairman of Slant/Fin), daughter-in-law Rachele and granddaughters Alyx and Nella. In lieu of flowers or other gifts, the family suggests contributions to be made to United Jewish Appeal or American Technion Society or Tilles Center For Performing Arts.
