 Oldest Man in the World Passes Away at 112

Salustiano Sanchez-Blazquez, oldest man in the world, breathed his last at the age of 112, at a nursing home in New York.

According to The Courier Mail, born June 8, 1901, in the Spanish village of El Tejado de Bejar, he was known for his talent on the dulzaina, a double-reed wind instrument that he taught himself and played at weddings and village celebrations.

In 1920, he came to the United States through Ellis Island and worked in the coalmines of Lynch, Kentucky, the report added.
