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

Juan Vicente Perez Mora, a 114-year-old Venezuelan man, passed away just weeks before his 115th birthday. Guinness World Records had awarded him the distinction of being the oldest man in the world on February 4, 2022, after Saturnino de le Fuento Garcia died. Mr. Mora attributed his longevity to a 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 was the father of 11 children and had 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 harvesting sugar cane and coffee. Despite his agricultural work he also served as a sheriff resolving land and family disputes. Perez lived through significant historical events such as both World Wars, the invention of television and even survived COVID-19 in 2020.

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