“The Bridgewater family lost Bruce Steinberg (a senior investor at Bridgewater and a wonderful man) and his family,” Ray Dalio, the founder of the Westport-based hedge fund, said in a statement on social media.

“Right now, we are each processing this devastating tragedy in our own ways. At this time I will be devoting my attentions to doing this and helping others.”

Steinberg, 50, his 51-year-old wife, Irene, and their three sons, Matthew, William and Zachary died in the crash. They lived in Scarsdale, New York.
