Maurice Gibb passed 13 years ago on January 12, 2003 at Mt. Sinai Medical Center in Miami. On January 15, the memorial service for him was held, and he was cremated.
Barry was too upset to attend the service. An article from The Sun (January 16, 2003) reports that "Robin Gibb broke down yesterday at the funeral of his twin Maurice," and that he was "30 seconds into a speech when he had to return to his seat." A friend was quoted as saying: "It was all too much for him."
