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

Juan Vicente Perez Mora, a 114-year-old Venezuelan man who was once named the oldest person in the world by Guinness World Records, passed away just weeks before his 115th birthday. The distinction was awarded to him on February 4, 2022, after 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.

Juan Vicente Perez Mora was the father of 11 children and had many grandchildren and 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 the first moon landing. In 2020 he even survived COVID-19.

President Nicolas Maduro paid tribute to Juan Vicente Perez Mora on social media expressing condolences to the family and people of El Cobre Tachira state where he resided. He described Mora’s passing as him transcending into eternity at an age of 114 years old. President Maduro urged people to remember Mr. Mora’s legacy as a humble hardworking man who loved family and tradition deeply.
