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

The Extraordinary Life and Legacy of Venezuela’s Oldest Man: Juan Vicente Perez Mora

Juan Vicente Perez Mora, a Venezuelan man celebrated by Guinness World Records as the oldest man in the world, has passed away just weeks before his 115th birthday. On February 4, 2022, Guinness honored him with the title after he had lived 112 years and 253 days since the previous record holder, Saturnino de le Fuento Garcia, died. Mr. Mora attributed his long life 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.

Governor Freddy Bernal expressed his sorrow at Mora’s passing, describing him as a humble and hardworking man who was passionate about family and tradition. Mr. 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 harvesting sugar cane and coffee. Despite this agricultural background, he also served as a sheriff resolving land and family disputes.

Throughout history, Perez witnessed significant 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 of Venezuela paid tribute to Perez on social media expressing his 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. May God receive him in His holy glory
