Already down to only 4 survivors Born in October 1920: Charles Burrell, Li Dak-sum, Zou Yu and Alicia Dussan de Reichel.

 

No doubts the Chinese will be left for ages. Remains to be seen who will go first between Burrell and Dussan.

The film below includes footage of 101-year-old ex-WW2 pilot Bernard Gardiner, celebrating his birthday flying in a Hawker Hurricane, which he last flew in 1944. Looks like he's still got years left in him!

Agree with you ! 

As @Fantomasss said in the french speaking deathlist, Malaurie is one of the few french centenarian A lister along with Françoise Gilot, Micheline Presle, Roland Dumas and Edgar Morin. Soulages was the first one to die among them. 


Françoise Gilot dead at 101.

NY Times obit.

Second one to drop dead from our A-list of french centenarians (after Soulages…). A much needed point for my french list. RIP, such a shame she was overshadowed by Picasso.

 

see Ulitzer, even french people go live abroad cause of how horrific France is… ;)
