Roger Auvin was born in Champagné-le-Sec (Nouvelle-Aquitaine) 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 in Limalonges, Deux-Sevres, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France at the age of 111 years, 207 days. He missed becoming the oldest man in Europe by approximately a week as Gustav Gerneth of Germany, who was reported to be at least two years older than him, died on 22 October 2019.
