I have never given anyone more than one obituary cartoon. Even Mother Teresa only got one. However, I felt like yesterday’s cartoon reflected our shock and sadness. So wanted to draw one that reflected Coach Leach’s wonderful inquisitive nature and very funny storytelling ability. I sat up last night watching videos of his stories and captured some of my favorite ones here (except for his wedding advice, which I think it is brilliant.) Also, make sure you sign up for my newsletter. I’ve written a column on my thoughts about why his passing stung so much.
