Guinness-recognized World’s Oldest Man, Juan Perez, Passes Away at Age 114

Juan Vicente Perez Mora, a Venezuelan man known as the oldest man in the world, passed away just weeks before his 115th birthday. Guinness World Records awarded him the distinction on February 4, 2022, when he was 112 years and 253 days after the previous record holder, Saturnino de le Fuento Garcia, died. Mr. Mora attributed his longevity to his daily routine of hard work, rest on holidays, early bedtime, a glass of aguardiente every day, his faith in God, and always carrying Him in his heart.

Perez began working in agriculture at the age of five and continued to do so throughout his life. Despite this work, he also served as a sheriff and helped resolve land and family disputes. He lived through many significant historical events such as both World Wars, the invention of television, and the first moon landing. In 2020 he even survived COVID-19.

Governor Freddy Bernal expressed his sadness at Mora’s passing, describing him as a humble and hardworking man who was enthusiastic about family and tradition. President Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela paid tribute to Perez on social media expressing his condolences to the family and people of El Cobre in Tachira state. He described Mora’s passing as him transcending into eternity at the age of 114. May God receive him in His holy glory.
