Mora was born on May 27, 1909. The Guinness World Records confirmed him as the world's oldest man on Feb. 4, 2022, after the death of Saturnino de la Fuente García of Spain. He died at age 112.

At 114 years old, Pérez Mora entered the ranking of the seven oldest people in history according to LongeviQuest.

Pérez Mora said he prays twice a day and his secret to longevity is of love God.

The Venezuelan says that the secret to a long life is "working hard, resting on vacation, going to bed early, drinking a glass of brandy every day, loving God, and always carrying him in your heart."

He also always carries his rosary and prays it twice daily.

Son of Euquitio Pérez and Edelmira Mora, he was the ninth of ten children. From an early age, he worked with his family in agriculture. He went to school, but due to his teacher's illness, he only studied for five months. He then learned to read and write thanks to a notebook she gave him.

"Her name was Carmen," Juan Vicente Pérez Mora said in a Guinness Book of World Records video.

Pérez Mora became a sheriff in Caricuena in 1948, a profession he practiced for 10 years. He was married to Ediofina Garcia for 60 years, until her death in 1997. They had six sons and five daughters, today with 41 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.
