Oldest Man in United States Dies of Natural Causes at Age 111

The oldest man in the United States died this week at age 111. The nursing and rehabilitation center where he passed away told The Associated Press last Sunday that he had died. Dr. L. Stephen Coles, of the Gerontology Research Group and Supercentenarian Research Foundation in Los Angeles, confirmed that the man was the third-oldest man in the world and the oldest man in the U.S. when he died.

Officials at the facility said the man died “comfortably in his sleep of natural causes.” Until age 105, the man had lived on his own with some help. The man was also a deacon at his church until he was 102. Facility staff said he was well known in the community, and popular for his good stories. For more, read the story
