BIOGRAPHY

Johnson Parks was born in Alabama (Georgia according to the GRG), USA, on 15 October 1884. He was a farm laborer during his life.

In 1961, he moved to Central Florida.

Parks died at the Mount Dora Health Care Center in Mount Dora, Florida, USA, on 17 July 1998, at the age of 113 years, 275 days. He was survived by two children and one brother.

RECOGNITION

On 25 April 1998, following the death of 115-year-old Christian Mortensen of California, Parks became the world’s oldest living man, at the age of 113 years, 192 days. He held the title for 83 days, until his own death.

His age was verified by the Kestenbaum study, and he was later included to the GRG’s database of validated supercentenarians.
