He was the 45th oldest living man in Europe, the 10th oldest living person in Belgium, he was the 11th oldest man in the history of Belgium, his successor is the 14th
He was the oldest man in Belgium since 31 Oct 2023 (172 days), the shortest time since Jef Smets who stayed 46 days, (25 July 2021-9 Sep 2021) and also the one who died at the youngest age (107 years 289 days ) since Smets (107 years, 147 days). He was the 10th man from East Flanders to be the oldest man in Belgium, the last was Aime Wille (20 Dec 2014-7 May 2015 at 106 years 67 days)

RIP

Benedictus Moris born on 9 Feb 1919 in Antwerp, where he still lives, is the new top ten?
