Only 83?  Heck, in my family, that's just about average life expectancy.  :D

As my dear brother once announced at a family member's 70th birthday:  "Medical science has at last established the key to long life.  Choose your parents carefully."

Oh yes, three of my grandparents lived into their 90s.  The fact remains, though, that 83 is hardly "middle-aged" anymore.  Not unless your family has a life expectancy of...oh...160?   ;)  So yes, 83 is on the "rather old" end of the spectrum.  Not necessarily on death's doorstep--that depends on the individual.  But definitely old.

I have a vocabulary in excess of 75,000 words, and I'm not afraid to use it!
