This morning I learned the sad news that one of my favorite cousins, Ralph Dunagin died last night. Ralph was a few years older than me and several other cousins. His creativity and kindness to us made him our hero. He continued to be an inspiration to us as he pursued his artistic pathway into developing the syndicated cartoon known as “Dunigan’s People”. He was a gifted artist, and donated some 900 pieces of his cartoons and art work to USM. He will be missed by everyone who knew him and his work.

I grew up with Ralph Dunagin’s cartoons in the

, and his humor was so clever. I learned after I started working at the paper what a gentleman he was. RIP, Ralph Dunagin.


Ralph Dunagin gave me this cartoon when I was the

‘s medical writer in the 80s. It hangs on my wall to this day. Ralph didn’t draw cartoons with sharp edges. He made you smile with his takes on everyday life. What a good and classy man he was. Handsome, too.


I was filled with sadness when I heard that my friend, mentor, brother-figure, father-figure and teacher, Ralph Dunagin passed away this morning. For 20 years I shared an office with Ralph absorbing his genius.During that time I pretty much got the equivalent of a master’s degree in caption writing from one of the best minds in cartooning. One of our former editors, Dave Burgin said Ralph’s captions were as smooth as silk and he was right.
Ralph was a man’s man, a country gentleman, and a down home comedian. I’ll never forget how he took me under his wing at The Orlando Sentinel. His humor kept me sane.
I’ll miss you Ralph!
My condolences go out to his fantastic wife Karlene.


We are still working on getting more details about the death, as family statement on the death is yet to be released.
