    Default One of our drum brothers, Zickos, has moved on.

    Guys, I'm sorry to have to be the bearer of bad news. Here is a PM I received by Zickos' wife:

    ===========================
    Hi -
    This is Gyan, Maurice's wife. He's known as Zickos on this forum.
    Sad to tell you this news, but he passed away last Friday. His cancer had returned again, and he was diagnosed as terminal last December...that's why he was so eager to sell things - needed to get them out of the house so I wouldn't have to mess with them after he passed on, and needed the $$$ for all things medically related.
    Anyway, he would spend hours on this site, and he enjoyed it so much!
    I would appreciate it if you would make a post that he is no longer with us. He's probably playing drums with the Big Bands of long ago!
    His name was Maurice Galoob, and below is his obituary. Thank you.

    לברכה זיכרונו
    May his memory be a blessing

    Maurice Galoob, died on May 5, 2017 at his home
    in Norman, Oklahoma, after a long illness. He
    was born on November 19, 1946 in Ardmore to
    Henry and June Galoob. He grew up in Healdton,
    where he was a drum major in the marching band.
    Maurice attended college at the University of
    Oklahoma, where he earned his degree in music
    education and met the love of his life--his wife
    Gyan--in the Pride of Oklahoma. Through over
    46 years of marriage, Maurice and Gyan built a
    home full of love and music. For many years,
    they co-owned and operated The Candy Basket,
    a beloved candy and gift store in Norman. His
    passion for teaching, evident in all his deeds,
    was transmitted to his sons, both of whom are
    educators in Tulsa. Maurice is survived by his
    wife, Gyan Summers Galoob; his son Dr. Stephen
    Galoob and wife Mindy Roe Galoob, of Tulsa;
    his son David Galoob and wife Brittany Hayes,
    of Tulsa; his grandchildren, Samuel and Isaac
    Galoob; his siblings Dr. Harry Galoob and wife
    Lynda (of Ardmore, OK), Stephanie Baker and
    husband Ernie (of Ardmore, OK), and Michell
    Brown and husband Bennett (of Phoenix, AZ);
    and numerous cousins, nephews, and nieces.

    I hate threads like this. Condolences go out to his family. Sounds like he was top-notch guy in all aspects of life.

    RIP, Zickos. It was an honor & pleasure.

    Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!

    "I think that feeling is a lot more important than technique. It's all very well doing a triple paradiddle - but who's going to know you've done it? If you play technically you sound like everybody else. It's being original that counts." ~ John Bonham

    Same here. I never know what to say. I will tell you this though, I always feel like they're still with us in some way. For that reason, I don't get as sad as most people when it involves death. For me, they didn't really die, they're just in a different place.

    We'll miss you Maurice!

    I had seen all of his threads about selling his gear. It hits you when you realize why he was selling everything. Thanks for being a part of this forum. You will be missed.
