Nicanor Sanchez (10 November 1902 – 20 November 2012) was a Mexican-American supercentenarian whose age is currently unvalidated by the Gerontology Research Group (GRG). If his age were true, he would have been one of the oldest men ever born in Mexico.


Nicanor Sanchez was born in Doctor Arroyo, Nuevo León, México, on 10 November 1902. Her parents were Nicanor Sanchez and Virginia Salinas. He claimed to have immigrated to the United States in 1913. He married Maria del Refugio B. Sanchez. He toiled for 75 cents a day at a steel plant during the Great Depression, she said, and later landed a civil service job at Kelly AFB, from which he retired in 1968.

Sanchez passed away on 20 November 2012, in Texas, United States, at the age of 110 years, 10 days.
