Roger Auvin (20 March 1908 – 13 October 2019) was a French supercentenarian who was the oldest known living French male since the death of Georges Massard on 24 November 2016.

Biography

Auvin was born in Champagné-le-Sec (Vienne) as the eldest child in a family with 7 children (5 boys and 2 girls). He and his wife owned a grocery store in Limalonges. The couple had 2 sons, Jean-Claude (passed away in 2007) and Rémi. His wife passed away after 75 years of marriage in 2007.

At 108, he was a bit hard of hearing, slept a lot and moved around in a wheelchair but still lived at home in Limalonges. He may have become the oldest man ever from the French region of Nouvelle-Aquitaine on 18 November 2018 after surpassing the age of Alexis Daigneau (1890-2001).

Roger Auvin died on 13 October 2019 at the age of 111 years, 207 days.
