LongeviQuest is pleased to announce the age validation of Kenneth Weeks at 110 years old. He is an Australian supercentenarian recognized as the current oldest living man in the country.
Kenneth Loxton Weeks was born on 5 October 1913 in Grafton, New South Wales, Australia.
At the start of World War II in 1941, he married Jean McPhee with whom he had two sons. The couple then proceeded to stay married for 45 years before Jean passed away in 1986.
Ken has had many occupations in his life. He worked on construction jobs like putting up roads and constructing wartime airfields at Evans Head. He was also a truck driver, a petrol station operator, and an employee at the Grafton Match Factory. Ken is also a co-owner of a Chrysler car dealership and repair business in Grafton. After World War II, he set up a radio and electrical sales and repair business at 59 Prince St. He operated this shop for several years but later replaced it with a milk bar. Consequently, he worked as a school bus driver at Clarence Valley.
Ken Weeks moved to an aged care facility at Whiddon Grafton in September 2018 just before turning 105 years old. Even at the age of 110, he is still active and can walk unaided.
On 17 September 2022, Kenneth became the oldest known living man in Australia after Frank Mawer passed away.
