The Peugeot family has suffered an unfortunate loss this past weekend when Bertrand Peugeot passed away on February 14, at age 85. Having acted as vice-chairman of the eponymous French automaker for some 25 years, Bertrand Peugeot will be remembered as the architect of the merger between his family's company and Citroen, forming PSA/Peugeot-Citroen that is now one of Europe's largest automakers.
The grandson of company founder Robert Peugeot, Bertrand is survived by his sons Christian, director of communications and strategy at Peugeot, and Robert, who presides over the family's holding company.

      With a due respect, the Peugeot family did not "suffer an unfortunate loss."

      For Chrissakes, dude was really old!

      He died.

      I am sure he is riding around the clouds in a mint 404 Cab with some Folies Bergere showgirl riding shotgun.

      It's ok to get old and die.

      Most people do.

        I know what you mean and I'm not being critical but the first part of your statement just sounds really harsh. A loss is a loss, no matter how old someone was or how expected their death was. It still sucks
