We encourage you to share your personal
condolences and stories of Mitchell L. Slotnick below and
we will share them with the family.

Robin Klawinski (Schufeldt)

My prayers and thoughts go with you and your family. Your father was a teacher of mine many years ago at Philip Roger school. And the joys of remembering him and your mother being our chaperones for our eighth grade field trip to Washington DC. He was a wonderful teacher and a great man. May he rest in peace

Marty Brand

Sorry for your loss. I was one of Mr. Slotnick's first students at Rogers. His approach to teaching was unique. I also lived on the same street as him and will always remember him calling me by my last name when passing his house. My prayers go out to your family.

Ila Wolen (Zaban)

Your fathers was such a great and wonderful man. I was one of his many students at Rogers who made such an impact on our lives. He will be truly missed by everyone who he taught and I extend my deepest condolences to you and your family.

Gro Skalvik Joergensen

We are so sorry for your loss. Best regards to all of you from your norwegian family.

Lizett Boada

My deepest sympathies go out to all the family. I am honored and blessed to have known him, such a great man, I will never forget his kindness when he gave me the opportunity to work for his company. May my prayers help comfort you. Best regards from Colombia.

Vivian Whitaker

Dear Valerie, Barry, & Jay,
Though I cannot be there with you today, I am with you in spirit. I am blessed to be part of Mitchell's ET family. May God grant you peace and give you comfort.

WILLIAM (Bill) Weinstein

I am sorry for your loss and my condolences go out to all. I first met "Doc" when he wasn't yet a doctor. He taught special math at Rogers and I was in first grade. He followed my class all the way thru 8th grade and had a great influence on my life beyond being a teacher. He kept me on the straight and narrow all those years. I saw him when I was a student at Loyola U. He taught accounting, and while I didn't have any of his classes, I did stop in to visit and talk. He will be missed.
