Don Orehek Death, Obituary – The Berndt Toast Gang would like to express their deepest condolences to Don’s family and friends as they share the news that Don Orehek, a longtime member of the BTG, incorrigible cartoonist, lightning quick caricaturist, and all around wonderfully funny guy, passed away this morning. Don was a member of the BTG for many years. He was known for his lightning quick caricatures and all around wonderful sense of humor. Don was a caricature artist who was famous for his ability to draw caricatures incredibly quickly and for having a wonderful sense of humor in general. Don was incredibly productive, as evidenced by the thousands of humorous cartoons that emerged from his pen and were published in the pages of the most popular magazines.
These cartoons were published in the pages of the most popular magazines. These cartoons have been seen in print within the pages of some of the most well-known magazines. The beginning of Don’s long and successful career as a magazine cartoonist began in the middle of the 20th century and lasted into this century. Don’s work has been published in numerous magazines over the course of his career. Throughout the course of Don’s career, his writing has appeared in a variety of publications, most notably magazines. Don served in the United States Navy for the final four years of the decade that began in the 1940s. During this time, he was offered the chance to create a comic strip that would later be distributed in a variety of military newspapers.
He took advantage of this opportunity. Following the conclusion of Don’s time spent in the armed forces, he began his transition into the civilian workforce. Don was already working as a cartoonist on a full-time basis by the year 1956, according to an interview that took place in 1974 and was subsequently published in Cartoonist PROfiles. This interview took place in 1974. He would contribute gag cartoons to a long list of magazines, some of which include the Saturday Evening Post, 1000 Jokes, Look, Good Housekeeping, Playboy, McCall’s, Humorama, Christian Science Monitor, Modern Maturity, Family Circle, Cavalier, True Adventure, Broadway Laughs, Saturday Review, and Reader’s Digest.
Other magazines he would contribute to include Reader’s Digest, Saturday Review, and the Saturday Evening Post. Additionally, in the late 1950s, Don would initiate what would become a fruitful collaboration with Cracked Magazine. In the 1960s, I first learned about Don through reading an article that was published in this journal. The following decades would see no significant change in the strength of this relationship.
