Jul 4 2021 Share

Emilio Flores Marquez, a former sugar cane farmer, was born on August 8th 1908 in Carolina, Puerto Rico. He has been confirmed as the world’s oldest man by the Guiness World Records just a few weeks away from his 113th birthday. Emilio was the second oldest son of 11 children and helped to take care of most of his siblings. The first-born son, he helped his father on the sugar cane farm as a young boy. 

Emilio married Andrea Perez and enjoyed a loving marriage for 75 years until her death in 2010. Emilio is also the father of four children, five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Despite losing most of his hearing and getting a surgery to implant a pacemaker at the age of 101, he is still going strong. His secret to a happy life is to have an abundance of love and to live without anger.
