Yisrael Kristal (113 years, 330 days), Israel

Sept. 15, 1903 – Aug. 11, 2017 

The super-centenarian died a month short of his 114th birthday. Kristal had outlived two World Wars and was a Holocaust survivor.  At the time of his entry into the Guinness World Records book in 2016, he had said, "I don’t know the secret for long life. I believe that everything is determined from above and we shall never know the reasons why. There have been smarter, stronger and better looking men than me who are no longer alive. All that is left for us to do is to keep on working as hard as we can and rebuild what is lost."
