Washington Times cartoonist Bill Garner passes at 79

Longtime Washington Times editorial cartoonist Bill Garner has passed away.

From his paper:

Bill Garner stopped drawing political cartoons for The Washington Times six years ago, but he never stopped being an artist.

He had several showings of his paintings at an Annapolis gallery. He would sketch passers-by as his wife Patricia Garner did mall-walking. Sometimes people would take notice and ask him to teach them how to draw, which he was happy to do.

Mr. Garner died July 21 after a lengthy illness, about two weeks shy of his 80th birthday.

  1. I’m sorry to hear this. He had a long career and I think he worked for the Commercial Appeal in Memphis before he went to Washington.
