World's Oldest Man Dies in USA at Age 114.
GREAT FALLS, Montana -- Walter Breuning, the world's oldest man and second-oldest person, died Thursday. He was 114.
Breuning died of natural causes in a Montana hospital, said Stacia Kirby, spokeswoman of the Rainbow Senior Living retirement home where he lived. Breuning had been hospitalized since the beginning of the month with an undisclosed illness.
Breuning was 26 days younger than Besse Cooper of Georgia, whom the Gerontology Research Group in Los Angeles lists as the world's oldest person at 114.
In an interview with The Associated Press last autumn, Breuning attributed his longevity to eating just two meals a day, working as long as he could and always embracing change -- especially death.
"We're all going to die. Some people are scared of dying. Never be afraid to die. Because you're born to die," he said.
