The records organization announced that Juan Vincente Mora, who will turn 113 on May 27, has been confirmed as the world’s oldest man by Robert Young, Senior Consultant in Gerontology at Guinness World Records and the Gerontology Research Group.

May 17 (News) – Guinness World Records announced that a Venezuelan has been named the oldest living (male) person just days before his 113th birthday.

Mora was born in 1909 as one of 10 children and today has 11 children, 41 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren and 12 great-great-grandchildren.

Mora, who worked as a farmer for decades before selling his last piece of land at the age of 104, married Ediofina del Rosario Garcia in 1937. Garcia died in 1997.

Mora starts each day with a cup of coffee and breakfast with his family. He remains a devout Catholic and prays the rosary daily.

The supercentenarian told Guinness World Records that the most important things he learned in life were “love of God, love of family and that we have to get up early to work.”

Mora was named the record holder after the previous record holder, Spaniard Saturnino de la Fuente Garcia, died on January 18 at the age of 112 years and 341 days.

Guinness World Records recently announced that the oldest living person (female) is Sister Andre from Toulon, France. Her age was verified at 119 years and 95 days.
