A tribute to the world’s oldest man, Juan Vicente Perez from Venezuela, who passed away just two months before his 115th birthday. Mr. Perez lived through two World Wars and the Covid pandemic and was known for his optimism for life. Guinness World Records confirmed him as the world’s oldest living man when he was 112 years and 253 days old on February 4, 2022.

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

The governor of Tachira, Freddy Bernal, expressed deep sadness at Mr. Perez’s passing while President Nicholas Maduro offered condolences recognizing his contribution to Venezuela’s Guinness World Record as the oldest man in the world.
