Biographies[edit]

Galo Leoz[edit]

Galo Leoz (22 April 1879 – 23 January 1990) was a Spanish professor of ophtalmology at the Complutense University of Madrid. He performed pioneering studies on the degeneration and regeneration of optical nerves, and on cornea transplants.[35] He received the Spanish gold medal for work merit [es] and was president of the Spanish Ophtalmological Society. He was considered the world's oldest doctor, as he kept working until the age of 103.[35] Leoz was Spain's oldest known living person when he died aged 110 years 276 days. His record was surpassed in 1992 by Josep Armengol Jover (23 July 1881 – 20 January 1994), who lived 112 years and 181 days.

Ana María Vela Rubio[edit]

Ana María Vela Rubio (29 October 1901 – 15 December 2017) was born in Puente Genil, Andalucia. She worked as a dressmaker in her youth. She never married her partner as her parents objected to him, but the two had several children. Her daughter, also named Ana, lived with her.[36] Rubio became the oldest verified Spaniard ever on 6 June 2016, when she surpassed the record of María Antonia Castro who had died in 1996, aged 114 years, 220 days.[36] She went on to live a total of 116 years and 47 days. At the time of her death she was the third-oldest living person in the world, behind Nabi Tajima and Chiyo Miyako.[3] She became the oldest living European upon the death of Emma Morano on 15 April 2017,[37] and she ranks as the fourth-oldest European ever recorded.[3]

Francisco Núñez Olivera[edit]

Francisco Núñez Olivera (13 December 1904 – 29 January 2018) was born and lived his whole life in the village of Bienvenida in the Badajoz province of Extremadura.[38][39] He joined the army at the age of 19 to fight in the Rif War.[40] He was also a veteran of the Spanish Civil War. He was nicknamed "Marchena" after his resemblance to native flamenco singer-songwriter/actor Pepe Marchena.[39] His wife died in 1988, and he survived his two sons.[40] In his later years as a pensioner, he lived with his elder daughter María Antonia.[39][40] Olivera had his kidney removed when he was 90 and a cataract operation aged 98; he was otherwise in good health.[40] He became the oldest living man after the death of Yisrael Kristal on August 11, 2017.[38] Olivera went on to live a total of 113 years and 47 days.[38]
