Did you know anyone who retired at 65 or 70 and then a few years after that died?
My dad would have died shortly after I got married in 2009 if he didn’t get an LVAD. He died almost 3 years later. The anniversary of his death was last week.
I thank God for this, but no, I do not. I have lost a couple of relatives to old age, though😞
Most of them did because they had nothing more as a cause to lice for
Father in law retired on a Friday at 60. Died three days later of a heart attack. Retire as soon as you can. You never know........
Yes that’s the idea.
Dad died at 54, mom at 78, grandparents all late 70’s to 80. I see a pattern.
That’s not good at all!
Yes, my Dad
I’m sorry to hear that😕
Knew a guy who retired at 65, was walking a short distance to the bank to deposit his last paycheck, collapsed and died...heart attack.
Seems like that happens a lot.
Retiring and changing one’s routine can be very stressful for some people.
I’ve heard about many people who died within a short time of retiring. A good family friend, who had been a highway patrolman and then a school district bus supervisor, had a heart attack and dropped dead literally the morning after he retired. He was in his fifties.
And even younger, yes. But it wasn’t retirement or boredom that killed them, they were already headed downhill, physically, before they retired.
My whole life my dad spoke of how he would retire to Arizona with my mother and live the “good life”. He was very frugal. Took 5 vacations that I remember and we hardly ever went out to eat. When he did retire, his health weakened and one day on a special occasion, he died walking on a street.
😢 I’m so sorry.
Paul William "Bear" Bryant was an American college football player and coach. He was best known as the head coach of the University of Alabama football team. During his 25-year tenure as Alabama's head coach, he amassed six national championships and thirteen conference championships. He died at 69 only 6 months after retiring from coaching.
He had a great life but too young to die.
10 days after
How awful! Were they sick?
My grandmother retired at 65 and died 3 months later.
Yes. She was diagnosed with leukemia 2 weeks after she retired. She’d gone in for a routine checkup.
That’s terrible. Reminds me of my Aunt Mary. Went for a complete check up and she was fine. A few weeks later something happened - she was hemorrhaging and she died at 54. That was very shocking. My cousin who was...about 22 was not able to speak for several weeks after.
My father retired at 65 and died at 72.
Very similar to my dad.
My dad. Retired at 65. Died 3 weeks ago at 74.
Sorry for your loss, axl
I’m so sorry Axel. Was he ill?
I’m so sorry for your loss, Axl.
Thanks. CC... he wasn't ill for very long. He first started getting short of breath this past November. Turns out he had a very aggressive for of lung cancer, it came on very fast, he had to go on a ventilator for 2 weeks where unfortunately I had i make the decision to take him off when it was found out that there would be no hope of treatment or recovery. Just a horrible thing, still in shock.
How very awful for everyone. Hugs.
I’m so sorry axl. 😢
axl, wow. i am so sorry for your loss. ❤
Well, I worked with a teacher who retired at 55 and died at 56 or 57. Very sad.
You never know. Very sad and so young.
