Fred Stewart Searcy AR cartoonist remembered.

Fred Stewart cartoonist Searcy AR

While working on a real estate transaction, I received this book as a gift.  I did not know that Fred Stewart had written a book and was very pleased to receive it.  I have now read it through and looked at all of the cartoons and the book IS a cartoon book with 88 pages.  It shows his talent and makes me wish he was still around.

This is a part of what he says about himself on page two.

"Fred Stewart has been involved in law enforcement since 1964 when he started with the Skokie, Ill. police department.  He has been a patrolman, Sgt., small town police chief, a road deputy, an investigator, and is currently an elected Arkansas constable.

 In 1986 Fred was shot in the face with a shotgun resulting in the loss of his right eye and facial disfigurement.  Fred was attempting to disarm a man with a shotgun during a family dispute in a public restaurant where Fred was a customer.  During the next few years while recovering and going through numerous surgeries to reconstruct his face, Fred attempted to put this book together to pay tribute to law enforcement officers everywhere.  This book is in no way an attempt to demean law men but rather a look at the lighter side of law enforcement or police work."

With so much attention on the dangers of law enforcement now I think it may be time to pay tribute to Fred Stewart, a well-known Searcy cartoonist who has passed on.

Barbara, using humor to enlighten, to lift up is in my book the only way to fly. We all need more Fred Stewart's around. What a story!

So glad you found the book.

Thanks, Andrea.  He had a lot of talent and suffered a lot from his injury.
