The Oldest Man in the World Died at the Age of 113

The oldest man in the world, Masazo Nonaka, died on January 20th at his home, in a small town of Ashoro, Hokkaido island, Japan. He was 113 years and 179 days old. The sad news came from his granddaughter Yuko Nonaka who informed the journalists that her grandpa died of natural causes while asleep. 

Nonaka was recognized by Guinness World Record book as the oldest living male person in the world. He was born on July 25th, 1905 and spent his life in Japan, in his hometown running the family hot-spring inn. He grew up in a large family, alongside his 6 brothers and 1 sister. Nonaka got married in1931 and had 5 children. 

According to his granddaughter, he had no serious health problems and his death is caused by natural circumstances. He did not appear looking bad on the day he died until his great-grandson discovered that Nonaka was not breathing.

His longevity is contributed to Nonaka's relatively stress-free life. He used to love candies and spent a lot of time watching sumo fights. He would soak in the hot springs and slowly move around the area on his wheelchair. Nonaka lived longer than his wife, all of his siblings, and three of his children.

This is a depressing story to know he ended after so many years of struggle with old wrinkly skin and a too long life.
