World’s Oldest Man Dies

The world’s oldest man has died at his home in Japan at age 113.

Masazo Nonaka died peacefully of natural causes while sleeping at an inn run by his family. Nonaka was born in 1905 and eventually operated the inn, which is now managed by his granddaughter. Nonaka married in 1931 and had five children. He enjoyed watching sumo wrestling on TV and eating sweets.

The oldest person ever whose age has been verified was Jeanne Calment, from France, who died in 1997 at age 122.
