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

Juan Vicente Perez Mora, a Venezuelan man renowned as the oldest person in the world by Guinness World Records, passed away at the age of 114 just weeks before his 115th birthday. Guinness had bestowed this recognition on him on February 4, 2022, after he lived 112 years and 253 days longer than the previous record holder, Saturnino de le Fuento Garcia.

Mr. Mora attributed his longevity to his daily routine of hard work, rest during holidays, early bedtime, a glass of aguardiente every day, his faith in God, and always carrying Him in his heart. Governor Freddy Bernal expressed his grief over Mora’s passing, describing him as a humble and diligent individual who was passionate about family and tradition.

Juan Vicente Perez Mora was the father of 11 children, 41 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, and 12 great-great-grandchildren. He began working in agriculture at the age of five alongside his father and brothers with sugar cane and coffee harvesting. Despite this agricultural background, he also held various positions in law enforcement agencies like serving as a sheriff to resolve land and family disputes.

Throughout history, Mr. Perez witnessed significant events such as both World Wars, the invention of television, and the first moon landing. In addition to these milestones, he even survived COVID-19 in 2020. President Nicolas Maduro paid tribute to Perez on social media following his death. He expressed condolences to the family and people of El Cobre in Tachira state while describing Mora’s passing as him ascending into eternity at an incredible age of 114 years old.
