Donald Rumsfeld was born 9 July 1932 and served as the 13th Defense Secretary of the United States in 1975-1977 and again served as Defense Secretary from 2001 to 2006. He died recently on 29 June 2021. He was 88.
George Fernandes was born on 3 June 1930. He served as 22nd Defence Minister of India from 2001-2004. He died on 29 January 2019. He was 88.
So here, we have two defense ministers from the most prominent countries who served same position during the same period and passed away at the same age.
This sounds like a coincidence I thought of pointing out.
