"ZI" 2002 Obituary


ZILDJIAN o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.toronto_star 2002-12-31 published
ZILDJIAN, Armand -- Of Scottsdale, Arizona and Quechee, Vermont (formerly Hingham, Massachusetts), President and Chairman of the Zildjian Company in Norwell, Massachusetts, died Thursday at his home in Scottsdale. He was 81. Born in Quincy, he attended local schools including Thayer Academy and Colgate University until called to serve in the Philippines during World War 2. Upon his return, he entered the family business, the world's largest cymbal manufacturer and the oldest company in America. An amateur musician himself, ZILDJIAN said he felt privileged to have been born into a musical dynasty, which dates back to 1623. Appointed President two years before his father's death, Armand took over the role of family patriarch in 1977. ZILDJIAN was known for his charismatic personality and warm personal relationship with drummers. He hand selected cymbals for such drummers as Gene KRUPA, Buddy RICH, Max ROACH, Jo JONES and many others and matched cymbals for the Boston Symphony and leading orchestras around the world. The foremost authority in cymbal sound, he created new product innovations in response to the ever-changing needs of musicians and remained deeply involved in the operation of the company until his death. ZILDJIAN received an honorary doctorate from Berklee College of Music, was inducted into the Percussive Arts Society Hall of Fame, and Guitar Center's Rock Walk in Hollywood, and most recently received Modern Drummer Magazine Editors Achievement Award. In addition to his wife, Andra, he leaves four children Wendy METS, Craigie, Debbie and Robert ZILDJIAN, three stepchildren Kristy THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, Mark and Peter FIELD, eight grandchildren Paula CHARLES, Cady and Emily ZILDJIAN- BICKFORD, Samantha ZILDJIAN, Dakota and Victoria THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, Kathryn and Spencer FIELD, two great grandchildren, Ian and Gwen CHARLES, several cousins, nieces and nephews and a brother Robert.

In loving memory of a dear husband, father and grandfather, Frank Bozidar ZIZEK, who passed away 5 years ago, on December 7, 1997.
We cannot halt the hands of time,
Or live again the past,
But in our hearts are memories,
That will forever last.
Sadly missed and always remembered by wife Antonia children and grandchildren.
