He was also the first male Spanish supercentenarian, and therefore the oldest ever male Spanish person at one point; as well as the third person from Spain to become a supercentenarian, after Josefa Salas (14 July 1860 – 27 February 1973) and Telesfora de la Torre (5 January 1876 – 8 October 1986). Aurelio Díaz was the last Spanish veteran of the Spanish–American War of Cuba.

Leoz's record was surpassed in 1993 by Josep Armengol (23 July 1881 – 20 January 1994), who lived to the age of 112 years 181 days. Galo Leoz was a noted ophthalmologist.[17]
