For more than half a century, Minson was an advocate for issues affecting Akron, Ohio, particularly the city's East Side. An employee of Goodyear for forty years, Minson was a union official with the United Rubber Workers before retiring in 1980. From that point, he was active in several organizations, including National Peoples Action and East Akron Community House. He served as an adviser for the Millennium Children's Fund and as a board member of Ohio Citizen Action. Through his church, Minson helped start a food pantry that served the community on a daily basis, and he also helped devise a program to educate community members.
