Slim was a long time resident of Penticton and was known by many. He worked for the City of Penticton as Foreman for the Parks Department then moving on to his own landscaping business, Slim’s Landscaping.
Slim also served one term as Alderman for the City of Penticton. He didn’t run for a second term as he couldn’t stand all the “politics” of City Hall.
As requested, there will be no service.
