World’s Oldest Man Shares Secret To His Longevity

John Tinniswood, a distinguished centenarian from the United Kingdom, has recently been acknowledged as the oldest living man in the world.

In addition to this remarkable achievement, Tinniswood graciously imparted his secrets to a long and healthy life, providing invaluable wisdom to the younger generation.

Tinniswood’s recognition as the world’s oldest man came following the death of Juan Vicente Perez Mora from Venezuela, who held the title at the age of 114, and Gisaburo Sonobe from Japan, who passed away at 112 years old.

Tinniswood, who lives at The Hollies care home in Southport, Merseyside, credits his longevity to a straightforward approach: practising moderation in all aspects of life and staying physically active.

‘To sit down in a chair all day is no good,’ he advises. His diet, which includes fish and chips every Friday, and his general approach to life have undoubtedly contributed to his long life, reports The Sun.

John is regarded by his family as an exceptional and deeply cherished father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend.

They have conveyed their immense pride and gratitude for his existence, highlighting his strength, zest for life, delightful sense of humour, and extraordinary ability to overcome challenges.

Furthermore, they have expressed their heartfelt appreciation to the caregivers at The Hollies for providing him with excellent care. As John embraces his new role, he does so with humility, accepting his recognition with a touch of modesty.

Throughout the turmoil of World War II, Tinniswood’s restricted vision led him to work in an administrative capacity within the Royal Army Pay Corps.

It was during this time that he encountered his future spouse at a dance in Liverpool, leading to their marriage in 1942 and the birth of their daughter the next year.

By the time he retired in 1972, Tinniswood had established a prosperous career as an accountant for Shell and BP, showcasing his skill with numbers and dedication.
