The World’s Oldest Man, a Venezuelan, Passes Away at 114

On February 4, 2022, Juan Vicente Perez Mora was officially recognized as the oldest living man in the world when he was 112 years and 253 days old. Born on May 27, 1909, in the town of El Cobre in the Andean state of Tachira, Perez grew up as the ninth of 10 children.

From a young age, Perez worked in agriculture alongside his father and brothers. He assisted with tasks like sugar cane and coffee harvesting, and over time became a respected figure in his community. In addition to his work in agriculture, Perez also served as a sheriff and helped resolve land and family disputes.

Perez had an impressive legacy that extended through multiple generations. He had 11 children, 41 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, and 12 great-great-grandchildren. His passing has left a lasting impact on those around him who knew him as Tio Vicente – a man who was dedicated to his work and wise beyond his years.

On Tuesday at the age of 114, Perez passed away in Caracas, Venezuela. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro announced his death on social media, acknowledging his long and remarkable life.
