LongeviQuest is pleased to announce the age validation of Alfonso María Rojas Perdomo at 110 years old. He is the first Colombian supercentenarian from the Department of Huila whose age has been validated. 

Alfonso was born on 31 May 1913 in Palermo, Huila, Colombia. 

His family was forced to relocate to the Vereda “La Primavera” in Santa Maria, Huila, to avoid the violent conflict between the liberal and conservative parties of the Colombian politics. There, he acquired rural land with his brother and focused on agricultural and livestock work.

Alfonso was married on 12 May 1951 to María Luz Dussán Mejía and had eight children with her. 

At age 110, he is in good health and remains lucid. He is currently residing in Santa Maria, Huila, Colombia.
