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 and boilers.

He was a generous supporter of many charitable causes. He is survived by his son Adam Dubin (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.
