Juan Vicente Perez Mora, the oldest man in the world certified by Guinness World Records in 2022, passed away on Tuesday at the age of 114 in Caracas, Venezuela. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro announced his death on social media, acknowledging his long and remarkable life.

Born on May 27, 1909, in the town of El Cobre in the Andean state of Tachira, Perez grew up as the ninth of 10 children. He began working in agriculture at the young age of five, assisting his father and brothers with tasks like sugar cane and coffee harvesting.

Over the years, Perez became a respected figure in his community, serving as a sheriff and resolving land and family disputes while continuing his work in agriculture. Known affectionately as Tio Vicente, he left a lasting impact on those around him through his dedication and wisdom.
