Oldest man in the world passes away just two months shy of his 115th birthday

In Venezuela, Juan Vicente Perez has passed away at the age of 114, just two months before his 115th birthday. Local officials paid tribute to his optimism for life, which helped him survive through two World Wars and the Covid pandemic. Guinness World Records confirmed him as the world’s oldest living man in February 2022, when he was 112 years and 253 days old.

Born on May 27, 1909, Mr. Perez attributed his long life to hard work, rest during holidays, an early bedtime, daily aguardiente consumption, a love for God, and always carrying God in his heart. He was married to Ediofina del Rosario Garcia for 60 years and had 11 children, 42 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, and 12 great-great-grandchildren. In 2019, Mr. Perez became the first male supercentenarian from Venezuela when he celebrated his 110th birthday.

Governor Freddy Bernal expressed deep sadness at Mr. Perez’s passing while President Nicholas Maduro offered condolences on behalf of the country’s people. Guinness World Records is yet to confirm Gisaburo Sonobe of Japan as the world’s next oldest living man at the age of 112 pending confirmation.
