I will try researching historical (before 2015?) cases of Aruba. So far no 102 (or 100+) who died before 2015 (except Koolman) has been found by me.

Here is an...interesting...case to say the least.

 

A Suriname-born man of Aruba by the name of James Williams was reported as the oldest man ever to live in Aruba in July 2021, can anyone find more about this man?

 

Edit: Here is a 105th birthday confirmation for him: 24ora.com/james-williams-a-celebra-su-105-ana dated 22 Dec 2020. I'm unsure of his full DOB but it's safe to say he is a true case.

Dominica Geerman-Ras (5 Aug 1915 - 31 Aug 2018)

Nice knowing there are quite more Aruban centenarians.

Like actually-- super interesting. He was a WWII Veteran and seems to have moved to Aruba after age 94.

Oops, I didn't recognize something:

He comes to Aruba every year, possibly for his birthday, since he was in his 80's.

Here is a report on Annette Maduro-Lampe on her 103rd birthday (in Papiamento, it can be translated on Yandex translate)

 

Sra Maria Anette Maduro Lampe semper gusta hari

ORANJESTAD   (AAN): Maria Anette Maduro Lampe tin 103 aña y ta di bario di Mahuma.

Durante un entrevista relaciona cu Dia di nos grandinan, señora Lampe a bisa cu el a haya 15 yiu cu su casa Mauricio Maduro.

Ora e tabata mucha e tabata gusta hunga entre otro cu popchi.

Pa loke ta cuminda, e tabata gusta come bonchi, komkommer y carni.

Señora Maduro Lampe nunca a traha, pero na cas tabata tin suficiente trabao cu e 15 yiunan cu orguyosamente el a cria.

DIARIO a puntra señora Maduro di e bistimento di e temponan ey y el a bisa cu muhernan tabata bisti shimis si y no carson.

Pa loke ta amigonan di school, sra Maduro a bisa cu tur a muri caba.

Awor ta su famia y bisiñanan ta su amigonan.

DIARIO a puntra Señora Maduro con el a conoce su casa y el a bisa cu ta na misa el a conoce.

Pa loke ta e enamoramento di antes, sra Maduro a bisa cu e persona tabata bin 1 of 2 biaha pa siman pa bishita e persona cu e tabata enamora di dje.

E famia di sra Maduro tabata cria bestia e tempo ey, incluyendo cabrito, porco y galiña.

Noticia di morto bo no tabata haya den corant manera awor, sino for di leu bo tabata tende un tiro di cañon cu tabata indica cu un hende a fayece.

DIARIO a puntra sra Maduro cua tabata e temporada mas dushi di su hubentud  y el a bisa cu tabata dushi ora e tabata conoce amiga y nan tabata bin cerca dje.

DIARIO a puntra e señora tambe con e ta sinti awor cu e tin 103 aña y el cu un sonrisa grandi riba su cara el a bisa cu te awor e ta sinti su mes bon.

El a bisa cu e tin pasenshi y e ta pidi Dios pa dune poco bida mas.

DIARIO a puntra señora Maduro kico ta e secreto di por a yega 103 aña.

“Esey ta secreto di Dios y no dimi”, segun señora Maduro.

El a bisa tambe cu e tempo ey nan tabata come hopi pisca y carni fresco, tambe bonchi patia etc. y esey quizas a yuda tambe.

Here is two 102+ historical year olds

Silveria Anselma (6 Nov 1890 - 25 Sept 1995) 104 years

Maria Nisbet-Lacle (6 Dec 1910 - 11 June 2015) 104 years

 

There are also numerous cases that I am unsure about due to me being almost/completely unable to see the grave, even TWO 106, and a 103.

James Williams was likely deported to Suriname in late 2021. He moved to Aruba in 2017 but sadly he does not have a residence permit so he was likely deported. For now we should have a LIMBO sign on his Gerontology Wiki pages. He was still in Aruba in July 2021.
