Pablo Roy Morales (15 January 1884 – 26 January 1994) was a verified Spanish supercentenarian.

Pablo Roy was born in Guadalajara, Castilla-La Mancha on 15 January 1884. He married and the couple had one son, Victorino, around 1910/1911. He worked as a farmer, but also had other occupations such as a musician and trader as well as being in the oil business. Pablo’s wife and mother both passed away in a power line accident that electrocuted them. Roy was his father’s last name while Morales refers to his mother’s last name.

He later moved to Madrid, where he lived for the remainder of his life. At the time of his 110th birthday, he stated that he was in good health (aside from poor eyesight and hearing) and wouldn’t mind living a few more years. Victorino was 82 years old at the time.

Pablo Roy passed away in Madrid, Spain on 26 January 1994 at the age of 110 years, 11 days. At the time of his death, he was not only the oldest men in Spain, but also in the whole of Europe. After his death, Gregorio Merino became the oldest living man in Spain and Emile Fourcade of France became the oldest living man in Europe.
