The world's oldest man has died, aged 113
He passed away in his bed on Sunday.
Masazo Nonaka, a 113-year-old from Japan who was recognised by Guinness World Records last year as the world's oldest living man, has died. He passed away in his sleep, and was found by his family on Sunday.
Nonaka was born in the Ashoro in Hokkaido on 25 July, 1905.
According to Kyodo News, his family were shocked by his passing.
"We feel shocked at the loss of this big figure," his granddaughter Yuko said. "His last moments were calm. He passed away without causing our family any fuss at all."
"I had many quarrels with him, but we had enjoyed being together. I'm filled with feelings of gratitude."
Guinness World Records confirmed that Nonaka was the oldest living man on 10 April, 2018.
