LongeviQuest is saddened to report the passing of Huang Decheng. Huang Decheng (Traditional Chinese: 黃德成) was born in the Empire of Japan (now Taiwan) on 14 November 1913 (according to his ID card). He passed away in Sanhe Village, Shuishang Township, Chiayi County, Taiwan on 20 November 2023 at the age of 110 years, 6 days.

Though official records indicate 14 November 1913 as his birth date, Huang Decheng asserts to have been 2 years older. If the date of birth on the ID is correct, he was 110 years, 6 days old at the time of his passing. He explains this discrepancy by stating that his family waited to register him due to concerns about infant mortality.
