The Wichita Eagle

Don Slawson, one of the patriarchs of the Wichita business community and the community at large, has died from complications of Alzheimer’s disease.

“I would think that there would be very few people in the last 40 years who have done more for the community and the state,” said Russ Meyer, Cessna Aircraft chairman emeritus, who called Slawson a “close personal friend.”
