Jim Unger, creator of the long running newspaper panel HERMAN, died in his sleep on May 29, 2012, after a long illness in Saanich, British Columbia. He was 75.
Funeral arrangements have not yet been made. In lieu of flowers and cards, Unger¹s family has asked for donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
Cartoonist Adrian Raeside said of his friend:
"If, like me, you're feeling down about Jim Unger's passing, go pick up a Herman book. I guarantee you'll start giggling at the first cartoon. I think that's how Jim would want to be remembered."
