Vietnamese decrepit Buddhist monk Thich Pho Tue finally dead at 104.

 

Uberfrail Thích Thanh Từ (wiki), 97, now the oldest Buddhist authority in Vietnam, I think.

Just wanted to talk about Jean Frédéric Waldeck, french explorateur who died at 109 in 1875 and was one of the very first notable centenarians. Reaching the age of 109 in the XIXth century, moreover for a man is quite impressive. Don’t know if everyone has ever heard about him but I thought it was quite interesting. Before him is there any celebrities that reach or approach his age ?

It will be a hell of a final triple threat...

The main conclusion is still right: only Asian and African left to battle it out. Wonder how long will Zywotko interfere.

Alive centenarians from countries and dependencies with smaller populations.  (under 20 million, only ones born over 100 years before this post.)

Austria: (8,9 million)

Helmut Ashley, cinematographer, director (born 17th of September 1919)

Walter Arlen, composer (born 31st of July 1920, alive as of 2020)

*snip*

 


So Austrian cinematographer Helmut Ashley (wiki), who has been picked in several deadpools on here, died on 2nd July 2021 aged 101 according to this forum post.

IMDb has updated his profile to reflect this. IMDb never uses forum/social media posts as evidence nowadays so there must be a death notice online somewhere, which will be useful for updating his Wiki.

Kudos to anyone who can find it. He also went under the names Helmuth Ashley and Helmuth Fischer-Ashley, so could be under those. He died in Munich, Bavaria, Germany, according to IMDb.

Eileen Ash on her 110th.

 

 

I feel like soon we might enter an era where there will be no living notable supercentenarians. Not mentioning the ones who might not be the age they claim to be, there are only six notable centenarians born before 1914 currently:

 

1. Stanisław Kowalski (1910-2022) Polish masters athlete and reason why the M105 WMA division was created in 2015, in great condition and potential future World's Oldest Man. The current world's oldest man is only 14 months older than he is. Died on the 5th of April 2022. 

2 1. Marita Camacho Quiros (1911-) First Lady of Costa Rica 1962-1966, widow of Francisco Orlich Bolmarcich (1907-1969). Wheelchair-bound and likely a dementia sufferer.

3. Eileen Ash (1911-2021) Cricketer, played seven test matches for England 1937-1949. Declined during the last year, could turn out to be a strong one though. Died ca. 3rd of December 2021.

4. Jessie Lichauco (1912-2021) Cuban-born American-Filipino philanthropist, turned her house into a makeshift hospital during WWII, widow of diplomat Marcial Lichauco (1902-1971). Frail and in a wheelchair. Died ca. 3rd of November 2021.

5 4 3. Dagny Carlsson (1912-2022) Swedish blogger and television personality. Has suffered from lung-related troubles, moved to a nursing home and recently donated her house to a cancer research foundation. Died suddenly on the 24th of March 2022 at 109.

3 2. Luis Torras (1912-) Spanish painter. Frail, but able to stand.

-. Luang Pho Yai (1913-2022) Buddhist monk who gained fame on social media in February 2022 for looking ancient. Died on the 22nd of March 2022 at 109.

6 5 4 3. Boris Pahor (1913-) Slovene novelist living in Italy known for Necropolis. Has looked horrible for over a decade, skeletal for the last three years and looked like an eldritch abomination on his 108th last month. However he can still walk.

 

1914 still has 10 living notable people. Mark my words, atleast one will make it to 110.

I am curious to see what age will Marita Camacho Quiros reach. She is among the most notable supercentenarians ever, if not THE most notable.

What? For being a wife?

There's also Dr. Leopold Vietoris (1891-2002) known for his contributions to topology, most notable example being the Mayer-Vietoris sequence. 

 

Quiros is the most notable one living, I'd say. And by far the longest-lived first lady.

Guardian obit for British stage actress Pamela Rose, weeks short of her 104th birthday.

 

Debuted on stage in 1941 but only made her first West End appearance in the 2000s.

 

Also an employee at Bletchley Park’s code breaking huts during WWII.

 

Was a castaway on Radio 4 a few years ago aged 97 so should’ve been on our radar, but alas wasn’t.
