Guinness-recognized World’s Oldest Man, Juan Perez, Passes Away at Age 114

Juan Vicente Perez Mora, the oldest man in the world, passed away just weeks before his 115th birthday. He was awarded this distinction by Guinness World Records on February 4, 2022, after he lived for 112 years and 253 days after the previous record holder, Saturnino de le Fuento Garcia, died. Mr. Mora attributed his longevity to a combination of factors that included his daily routine of hard work, rest on holidays, early bedtime, a glass of aguardiente every day, his faith in God, and always carrying Him in his heart.

Perez was a father of 11 children, 41 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren and 12 great-great-grandchildren. He began working in agriculture at the age of five with his father and brothers in harvesting sugar cane and coffee. Despite this workload, he also served as a sheriff for many years resolving land and family disputes. Perez lived through significant historical events such as both World Wars, the invention of television and even survived COVID-19 in 2020.

Governor Freddy Bernal expressed his sadness at Perez’s passing while describing him as a humble man who was enthusiastic about family and tradition. President Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela paid tribute to Perez on social media expressing condolences to the family and people of El Cobre Tachira state describing him as transcending into eternity at the age of 114. May God receive him in His holy glory.
