RIP Howard Gobioff

I just received news that Howard died of Lymphoma. I confirmed with Wandi, so this isn't just rumour. Apparently he'd been in the hospital for the last month and didn't tell anyone about it.

I had been meaning to visit him up in NYC since he's been back from Japan. He was a fantastically good friend back in the goth club days here in Pittsburgh from '97-'99, and then he was a better friend when we both moved out to the Bay Area around the same time. I lost close touch with him when he moved to Japan, because of the time zone differences, and well... just haven't managed to get back in touch with him since.

I have missed him, and will miss him more now.

He didn't tell anyone, even his family.


He will be buried in Hollywood, Florida this Friday (3/14/2008) at

Beth David Memorial Gardens
3201 NW 72nd Ave
Hollywood, FL 33024

The service will be at 2pm in the chapel.

For those of you unable to attend I will be putting together something
in NY sometime in the near future and will keep you informed.

Please do not send flowers. If you'd like to do something, please
donate to one of the charities Howard chose to leave money to:

Lymphoma and Leukemia Society
ACLU Foundation
Planned Parenthood Federation of America

P.S. - This was from an email his brother sent out to the contacts in Howard's phone. The "I" is Neil, not me.

Thank you.
