A 113 Year Old Land Surveyor, Laid to Rest

(Japan) Tomoji Tanabe, the world's oldest man, died in his sleep at his home in southern Japan on Friday -- according to a city official said. He was 113. "He died peacefully. His family members were with him," said Junko Nakao, a city official in Miyakonojo on Japan's southern island of Kyushu. Tanabe died of heart failure, she said. Tanabe, who was born on Sept. 18, 1895, had eight children - five sons and three daughters. The former city land surveyor also had 25 grandchildren, 53 great-grandchildren, and six great-great-grandchildren, according to a statement from Miyakonojo city.

Tomoji Tanabewas certified by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's oldest man when he was 111 years old. Guinness said Briton Henry Allingham, whose 113th birthday was June 6, is now the world's oldest man. Allingham, one of only two surviving World War I veterans in Britain, lives in a nursing home near Brighton in southern England. Tanabe lived with his fifth son and daughter-in-law. His favorite meals were fried shrimp and Japanese miso soup with clams, the city statement said. Tanabe drank milk every morning and read the newspaper. He also avoided alcohol and did not smoke, it said. The city's mayor, Makoto Nagamine, said Tanabe was "the symbol of the Miyakonojo known as a city of long life." *Material from The Associated Press used in this report*
