June 12, 2013 – World’s Oldest Man Alive, Jiroemon Kimura Dies In Japan, World Oldest Woman, Misao Okawa Now The Oldest Person Ever

Jiroemon Kimura, world’s oldest man alive is dead.

The super centenarian who had been recognized as the world’s oldest person ever died this morning of natural causes at the age 116 in Japan.

Kimura was born in Kyotango, Japan on the 19th of April, 1897.

According to Guinness, Kimura was the first man in history to have lived to 116 years old. Kimura became the oldest man ever on Dec. 28, 2012, at the age of 115 years, 253 days, breaking the record set by Christian Mortensen, a Danish immigrant to the United States, whose life spanned from 1882-1998.

The deceased has been replaced by another Japanese, Misao Okawa of Osaka who is now the current world’s oldest living woman.

She was born on the 5th of March, 1898 in Osaka, Japan.

    Don’t concentrate all your research around the whitemen country but bring them down to africa and you will be shock at how many years people lived and are living here.

    that man is no where the oldest person ever. My great grand mother was 165 years old before she died in 2006. The problem is that we have no means of letting the world know and because of that they feature popular people in their records.

    I dnt agree dt dose ppl r d oldest ppl in d world,they r only d oldest ppl 4 d whites (americas,asia,europe,etc),nt in africa. Bcuz in africa,I ve seen sum1 who has live 4 200yrs,he even 4gt d year he ws born. So,they shd been inform,they shd step their foots into africa,they’ll c dt God realy bless us. Though sum young ones died 2 early,bt we stil ve d oldest ppl ard us.

    116 years of age is just a child in Nigeria.
    If Japan could provide dt as d world’s oldest, then with all d leaves and natural medicines, they can’t still grow old.
    Come arnd Africa and you will find REAL OLDIES.

    He might not be the oldest while he was alive but he was the known oldest man accepted by the Guinness Book of records with fact to authenticate the claim as the oldest man then.
