Kevin Weil 1933-2012

 Sports cartoonist Kevin Weil died Saturday in his Kenmore, NY home after a long illness. He was 79.

From The Buffalo News:

He was an accomplished cartoonist and created the program covers for the [Buffalo] Bills from 1961 to 1964. His work was recently highlighted at the 50th anniversary of the AFL at the Football Hall of Fame. 
A mass will be held Wednesday morning.

From the Buffalo Bills site:

The cartoonist for the classic Bills game day programs from 1961-1964, Kevin Weil, passed after a lengthy illness over the weekend. A Niagara Falls native, Weil made his home and raised his family in Kenmore. Highlighted during the AFL’s 50th anniversary season of 2009, Weil’s covers are vintage AFL in every sense of the word.
