LongeviQuest is pleased to announce the age validation of Bernard Nenner at 110 years old. He was an American supercentenarian known as the oldest living man in Florida at the time of his death. 

Bernard was born on 4 May 1907 in Manhattan, New York City, New York, USA. 

At the age of 15, Bernard started working as a delivery boy for A&P in New York. Five years later, he quickly climbed the ranks and became a manager at age 20. 

On 4 March 1928, Bernard married the 18-year-old Sophie and the two of them had a daughter and a son.

He had a dry-cleaning business with 15 stores on the South Shore of Long Island but eventually sold it. Next, Bernard ventured into mobile home parks in Florida. He even experienced being trapped mid-air in one of the trailer offices with two other people inside due to a tornado in 1965. He also sold his mobile home park business in 1974 and then retired at the age of 67.

 At the age of 110, he managed a library at the Aston Gardens at Parkland Commons Senior Community where he currently lived at that time. 

Bernard passed away on 13 November 2017 in Parkland, Florida, USA.
