Biography

Joao Moreira Gomes was born in Berizal, Minas Gerais, Brazil on 15 December 1907. His siblings were named Bego, Flogencio, Ana, Afranio and Maria. While his birth certificate states his name is Joao Moreira Gomes, he claims his birth name is actually Joao Francisco Gomes. When he was 19, he moved to another city in the same municipality. He would never return to his place of birth, and gradually lost contact with much of his family, which deeply saddened him later in life. It wasn't until 2018, over 90 years after his departure, when the then-110 year old finally met with the descendants of his relatives.

Joao Moreira Gomes currently lives in Espirito Santo, Brazil at the age of 113 years, 190 days.
