Lawrence Woromay, 1927-2007

The comics artist and painter Lawrence Edward Woromay died on August 26 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Comics historian Mark Evanier has a fine obituary up at his site.

Woromay was born in New York, served in World War II, attended the Cartoonists and Illustrators School and worked as both a pulp magazine illustrator and as a freelancer for Stan Lee at Martin Goodman's comics company during its Atlas Comics period. He later worked for Warren and Charlton. Moving away from comics, Woromay found employment until retirement with the Nassau County (NY) Puppet Theater, serving as its director. In 1995, he and his wife moved to New Mexico, where the artist found a place in the Palladini Studios in Corrales and became a productive painter. He is survived by a wife of 58 years, two daughters, and seven grandchildren.
