Juan Vicente Perez Mora, the oldest man in the world as certified by Guinness World Records in 2022, passed away on Tuesday at the age of 114 in Caracas, Venezuela. The Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro announced his death on social media, acknowledging his long and remarkable life.

Perez was officially recognized as the oldest living man on February 4, 2022 when he was 112 years and 253 days old. With an impressive legacy that extended through multiple generations, he had 11 children, 41 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren and 12 great-great-grandchildren.
