DAVID WARREN BRUBECK December 6, 1920-December 5, 2012

Brubeck Family Statement

Our much loved and revered father, Dave Brubeck died of cardiac arrest today, December 5, 2012, one day before his 92nd birthday. He died peacefully with family present. The news spread before we even left the hospital. Our family is deeply appreciative of the phone calls, messages of condolence and continuing tributes in the media and those received personally, certainly a reflection back to us of Dave’s powerful and positive impact on the world. He specialized in long relationships, was married to our mother for 70 wonderful years and had few changes of personnel in his outstanding quartets or in professional management. Many of his fans became personal friends he knew for decades.

We thank you all for your appreciation of him and the respect you have shown our family.

Darius, Chris, Dan, Catherine and Matthew Brubeck
