In Memoriam – Per Åhlström – 1946 – 2023

By George Dyke….

I am saddened to report that Per Åhlström passed away at his residence in Yardley, PA on August 10, 2023 at the age of 77 after a courageous and lengthy battle with cancer.

Having got to know Per though our mutual affection for Citroëns has been an honor. Per’s commitment to research and understanding of them has been an inspiration to me.

Per shared his insight contributing incredibly well researched and written articles for Citroënvie such as;

And, of course, the article he wrote, ‘The Life, Death and Resurrection of a 1939 Traction Avant B11 Commerciale‘, about the passionate revival he did over the years on his pride and joy, – a car with which he won Best Traction and Best of Show at Carlisle this year.

The time we spent writing about, working on, and associating over Citroëns added a dimension to both our lives that he was, and I am, immensely proudly of.

Be at peace my friend — now closer now than ever to Andre Citroën.
