Guinness announces: Oldest living man revealed

Guinness has announced that Puerto Rican Emilio Flores Marquez is the world’s oldest living man at 112 years and 326 days.

Guinness announced on Wednesday, June 30, that Emilio Flores Marquez, of Puerto Rico, is the world’s oldest living man at 112 years and 326 days.
Born in Carolina, east of San Juan, Puerto Rico’s capital, in 1908, Marquez was recognized by Guinness and was certified as the oldest male.
Known to his friends as “Don Milo”, Marquez, when asked about his longevity, said, “The secret to longevity is in compassion.”
Speaking to Guinness, Marquez said: “My father raised me with love and taught me to love everyone. He always told me and my brothers to do good, to share everything with others.”
Marquez, who is the second oldest child of a family of 11 children and the first son of his family, stated that his family worked on a sugar cane farm, and that he received only three years of education. Marquez, who has four children, lost his wife of 75 years, Andrea Perez De Flores, in 2010.
Before Puerto Rican Emilio Flores Marquez, Romanian Dumitru Comanescu was the oldest living man, who died at 111 years and 219 days.
