family circus cartoonist bil keane passes away

The world has lost an incredibly artistic, creative man.

We're sad to announce that Family Circus cartoonist Bil Keane passed away yesterday at 89 years old due to congestive heart failure.

His memory will live on through his comic strip, which is featured in almost 1,500 newspapers across the United States!

Here's what Bil said was the goal of his work:

"I would rather have the readers react with a warm smile, a tug at the heart or a lump in the throat as they recall doing the same things in their own families."

Such sweet words!

Our thoughts go out to Bil's five children, as well as his many, many fans.

    R.I. P. And he did it without ever showing a gay or minority. You'd better do a follow up post proclaiming him homophobic and racist.

    my roomate's sister-in-law makes $87 hourly on the computer. She has been without work for 5 months but last month her check was $8487 just working on the computer for a few hours. Read about it here CalmCash. com

    Re: Lady Who? – Exactly! Mario should send his Gay Nazi Storm Troopers out to spirit his body away in the middle of the night.

    I thought he died years ago. Can't believe anybody still reads that comic. Even my grandma thinks it's lame. Here's hoping Jeffy gets a fast acting cancer, so this turd can finally be flushed.

    Re: Meggie246524 – When you are addressing someone in that manner, a comma is needed. It should read, "Thanks for the smiles, Bil. " Sheesh.
