Husband of world’s oldest married couple dies aged 110

The man who formed one half of the world’s oldest married couple has passed away at the age of 110, leaving behind his 104-year-old wife who he married in 1941. 

Julio Cesar Mora Tapia passed away at his home in the Ecuadorian capital of Quito, at around 11pm on October 22.

He leaves behind a widow, 104-year-old Waldramina ‘Waldrita’ Maclovia Quinteros Reyes, with whom he achieved the Guinness World Record for the world’s oldest married couple in August.  

Julio and Waldramina were born in 1910 and 1915, respectively. The pair had been together for 79 years and had a combined age of 214.

They got married on February 7, 1941, seven years after they first met and wed in secret, as some family members were against their relationship.

‘It was not easy because our relatives did not have a good relationship, but with time and patience, we were able to unite them, and we became an example and the best reference for the younger generations,’ the couple told Guinness World Records.

Waldrita revealed in the interview that she was drawn to Julio Cesar by his poetry, while Julio was captivated by Waldrita’s beauty and character.

According to the couple, the success to their long marriage was ‘love, maturity, and mutual respect’.
