I just wanted to share something with the forum. Honestly I've been kinda sad lately thinking about how Mr. Juan Vicente Pérez Mora is the last living man from the 1900s decade, as this was the same decade my great grandfather was born in. It's just sad for me to think how from all the men of my great grandfather's decade, there's only one left😭. It also occurred to me that there is not many men who were born in 1909 and made it to the 2020s decade, and I feel privileged and lucky to have had one in my family. 

After the passing of my great grandfather in January 2020 (1909-2020), I think I have developed a sense of comfort in Mr. Mora knowing that there's still a man from the 1900s who is alive. As it was incredibly difficult for me when my great grandpa passed away. 

I have been through a lot physically with lots of medical problems, at just my mid 20s. And my great grandpa was always there by my side, and I always felt very safe and at peace when I was with him. It seemed no matter how terrible I felt, or how frightened I was to have another medical procedure, it would all be okay when my great grandpa was there with me. And after he passed away, it just felt like I had no protector anymore. While he was alive, he always told me to be a strong man, something I definitely try my hardest at, to be strong. 

Strangely over the past year or so, I have found many things he had in common with Mr. Mora. Both were born in the last year of the 1900s decade, both speak Spanish, both are from Latin American countries, and both had very similar lives and careers. Astonishingly, my great grandfather also looked incredibly similar to Mr. Mora. 

It seems to me that I have found some sort of comfort in Mr. Mora. Even though I have never met Mr. Mora and did not know of him prior to him becoming the WOLM, he just feels like family somehow. 

Anyway I just wanted to share that story with everyone...

@024tomi I would, but my family has specifically asked me to not share personal information on the internet. I have been talking to them, trying to convince them to submit his documents to the GRG, but with no effort. At the time when he passed away, he may have been the oldest living man in my state, but he was not the oldest in the country.

Paternal grandfather (1926-1999) 73 years

Paternal grandmother (1932-1998) 65 years

Maternal grandfather (1926-2018) 91 years

Maternal grandmother (1929) alive, almost 94 years old

 

Father of my paternal grandfather (1893-1948) 54 years

Mother of my paternal grandfather (1900-1962) 61 years

Mother of my paternal grandmother (1912-2002) 89 years

(I do not know the date of my paternal grandmother's father)

Father of my maternal grandfather (1905-1963/1968) between 58 and 63 years old

Mother of my maternal grandfather (1899-1972/1974?) probably between 73 and 75 years old

Father of my maternal grandmother (1884?-1949) about 65 years

Mother of my maternal grandmother (188×-1933/1934?) I'm not so sure, maybe around 45 years old.

 

My grandmother has an older sister who was born in 1912 and is still alive, she is 110 years old.

 

But I don't really know much about her and I don't have her documents, so I don't know if it can be verified, but she is the older sister.

Kane Tanaka (1903-2022) my favorite supercentenarian of all time.

@ddmkm122 Has your maternal grandmother's impressive lifespan contributed to your interest in extreme longevity?

That’s an interesting question and one that I don’t actually know the answer to, but maybe it did contribute to it.

I'm sure she contributed to your interest. I started to be interested in longevity watching to my maternal grandmother, great aunts and great uncles, as well as my old neighbors (they all were/are in their eighties or nineties). I'm still interested in octogenarians and nonagenarians, indeed. And I'm also sure other members are also interested in non-supercentenarian old people...
