Bill Rechin 1930-2011

From the Associated Press:

Bill Rechin, 80, a cartoonist known for the syndicated “Crock” strip, which parodies life in a Foreign Legion desert outpost, died May 21 at his home in Spotsylvania County [PA] of complications from esophageal cancer.

In 1975, Mr. Rechin (pronounced “reckon”), Don Wilder and Brant Parker created the “Crock” comic strip as a parody of the Foreign Legion classic “Beau Geste.”

The rest is here.
