Venezuela’s oldest man, Juan Vicente Perez Mora, passed away on Tuesday at the age of 114, according to officials and family members. The news was announced on social media by President Nicolas Maduro, who expressed his deepest condolences and gratitude to Perez for living a life that spanned over a century.

Perez was officially recognized as the world’s oldest living man on February 4, 2022, when he was 112 years and 253 days old by Guinness World Records. He had 11 children and as of 2022, he had 41 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, and 12 great-great-grandchildren.

Born in El Cobre in the Andean state of Tachira on May 27, 1909, Perez began working in agriculture at the age of five alongside his father and brothers with sugar cane and coffee harvesting. As he grew older, Perez became a sheriff and played an instrumental role in resolving land and family disputes while continuing to work in agriculture.

Perez’s passing marks the end of an incredible life that spanned over a century. His legacy will live on forever as the oldest man in history. May he rest in peace.
