Singer Shmulik Krauss passes away at age 77

Singer Shmulik Krauss died on Sunday. He was 77 years old.

Krauss was hospitalized at the Ichilov Medical Center less than two weeks ago and was diagnosed with swine flu. The hospital announced his passing later Sunday evening.

Krauss was born in Jerusalem in 1935. He began his musical career in the 1950s. In the late 1960s he was a member of iconic Israeli band Hahalonot Hagvohim (The High Windows) and the 'Lool Clan.' In Hahalonot Hagvohim Krauss performed alongside his wife, Josie Katz.

Krauss suffered from ill health in recent years and his situation deteriorated rapidly after contracting the flu virus.

He leaves behind a life partner and three children.
