Bil Keane, the creator of classic American comic strip The Family Circus has died, aged 89.
The cartoonist passed away on Tuesday (08Nov11) after suffering congestive heart failure at his home in Paradise Valley, Arizona.
Keane's career began after his first cartoon was published in 1936 in Pennsylvania's Philadelphia Daily News.
He is best remembered for his one-panel comic The Family Circus, which he began drawing in 1960 and now runs in more than 1,000 U.S. newspapers.
His son Jeff, who has taken over drawing The Family Circus in recent years, tells the Associated Press his father died peacefully.
Jeff says, "He said, 'I love you' and that's what I said to him, which is a great way to go out. The great thing is dad loved the family so much, so the fact that we all saw him, I think that gave him great comfort and made his passing easy. Luckily he didn't suffer."
