dward James Slotkin, past
president of Hygrade Food
Products, loved going to the
theater, going out to dinner
and entertaining.
And, since the Bloomfield Hills resi-
dent was the husband of syndicated
entertainment columnist Shirley Eder,
he had plenty of opportunities to do

2003, at age 87.

man, whose personality really comple-
mented my mother's career," said their

skills. A week after they moved into

dinner, my father said, 'This is deli-
