David Gold
Earache Records

We recently reported that Woods of Ypres frontman David Gold tragically passed away on Dec. 22 in a car accident near Barrie, Ontario. He was just 31 at the time of his death. Gold’s sister posted new information about the memorial services that are planned for Gold this coming Wednesday, Dec. 28.

She wrote, as per Brave Words & Bare Knuckles, a note which detailed the memorial and revealed that a celebratory gathering will be held in the musician’s honor. It will include all of the notes that have been sent during the outpouring of support that the Gold family has received since their son’s untimely death.

If friends or fans of the doom metal band are able to contribute financially, information on how to do so is included in Marie Gold’s posting.

The text of her note is as follows:

“Friends, fans and family of David Gold and the Gold Family:

It will be held at Northwood Funeral Home in Sault Ste Marie on Wednesday December 28th, located at 942 Great Northern Road. Visitation will be from 1:00 – 4:00 PM, with service to follow.
