Has Mr. Rivas passed away? I saw a post on Facebook announcing Mr. Rafael Chinchilla as the oldest man in El Salvador.

No, he just isn't aware of Santos Rivas.

Ok. Should I mention about Mr. Rivas to the guy who made the post? Just to avoid further confusion?

@aquanaut_chalk He probably forgot that Santos Rivas was still alive, so he wrote that Rafael was the oldest. However, it is not, because Rafael is currently the second oldest known living man in El Salvador...
