Two representatives of LongeviQuest had the honor to visit Sr. Juan Vicente Pérez Mora, the world’s oldest living man, on his 114th birthday on 27 May 2023.
Sr. Pérez Mora was born in El Cobre, Tachira, Venezuela, on 27 May 1909. In 1938, he married Ediofina del Rosario García, with whom he had eleven children. In January 2021, the Latin American Supercentenarians (LAS) officially validated his age, making him the first validated Venezuelan supercentenarian. Now, more than two years later, he becomes the first validated man in over a decade to reach the age of 114.
The celebration party held in his hometown of San José de Bolívar, Táchira, Venezuela was attended by the commissioner and director of LongeviQuest América, Fabrizio Villatoro of Mexico, and one of the leading researchers in South America, Esteban González Olase of Uruguay. During the visit, LongeviQuest congratulated and celebrated his longevity, and presented Sr. Pérez Mora with a trophy in honor of his status as the world’s oldest living man and Venezuela’s oldest living person, along with a cake, flowers, and congratulations from fans from more than 13 countries around the world.
LongeviQuest sincerely extends our gratitude to Sr. Pérez Mora’s family for giving us permission and honor to visit him.
We deeply appreciate and thank our photographer Mr. Alejandro Gandica Escalona for the beautiful photos.
