Brazilian Jose Paulino Gomes, allegedly the “world’s oldest man,” passes away at 127 years old.

Brazilian Jose Paulino Gomes, who was thought to be the oldest person alive, passed away at the age of 127, according to the New York Post. One week before becoming 128 years old, Mr. Gomes passed away on Friday. In Pedra Bonita, Minas Gerais, Mr. Gomes passed away at home.

According to his relatives, Mr. Gomes’ organ failure was likely brought on by his senior age. On Saturday, Mr. Gomes was buried in Pedra Bonita’s Corrego dos Fialhos Cemetery.

According to the marriage license from 1917, Mr. Gomes was born on August 4, 1895. As a result, he has survived three pandemics as well as both World Wars.

A legal advisor for the civil registration named Willyan Jose Rodrigues de Souza certified to a local publication that Mr. Gomes’ age was correct and that he was born before 1900. His relatives questioned whether he was really that old, noting instances in which erroneous documents had been used.

“There is a 98-year-old woman nearby. She says she knew him as a young child. Eliane Ferreira, Gomes’ granddaughter, told local media, “At that point, we became curious to validate his age and went up the registry office to find out what was accurate.

Clearly older than 100, he was at least 110. Now, we must determine how that will appear on the death certificate.

According to the New York Post, it is uncertain whether Guinness World Records will examine the Brazilian’s papers. The oldest living person is Maria Branyas Morer, who is 116 years old, according to Guinness World Records. Ms. Morer was born on March 4th, 1907.

According to Guinness World Records, Juan Vicente Perez Mora, 114, of Venezuela is the oldest man still alive.

The family disclosed to the local media that Mr. Gomes was an animal tamer and had been horseback riding up until four years ago.

“He was very simple, very humble,” Eliane Ferreira recalled. He was distinct in that he preferred things that were natural and from the countryside above anything that had been developed. He reared pigs, hens, etc. All of his food came from this region and had to be cultivated or grown here. Furthermore, he enjoyed drinking occasionally.
