A niece of the Argentine comedian, who died last Wednesday at the age of 88, declared that her uncle’s remains will be cremated in a private ceremony due to sanitary restrictions in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Quino (1932-2020), who was a widower and had no children, died in the Argentine city of Mendoza, where he was born, after suffering a stroke.
The South American country lived on Thursday a day of national mourning decreed by the Government of President Alberto Fernández, for the death of the creator of the Mafalda comic strip, for which the Argentine flags waved at half mast.
In the decree published on Thursday in the National Bulletin, the Argentine president stated that Quino “is a figure with an outstanding career in our country and in the world for his social, humanist and cultural work, and throughout the years he worked as a cartoonist, scriptwriter, cartoonist and graphic humorist, becoming an integral artist “.
“This Government understands the importance of the cultural legacy that Joaquín Salvador Lavado Tejón (Quino) has left on Argentines and Argentines. By virtue of this, it is a duty to honor their memory,” the decree stated.
