Nicanor Sanchez

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.


He was born on 10 November 1902 in Doctor Arroyo, Nuevo León, México to 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. He passed away in Texas, United States on 20 November 2012 at the age of 110 years, 10 days.
