When you think about death, you may think around the age of 80 or 90, or in some cases even up to 100. Well Mbah Gotho who just passed away this past Sunday, April 30, 2017. He was born in the year 1870 on December 31, which to do the math for you, would make him around 146 at the time of his death. Gotho was born in Sragen in central Java, an area in Indonesia. Local reports had said that they had brought him into the hospital on April 12 due to deteriorating health. However, he was a family man and he insisted that he spend his final days and hours with his family. When he returned home from the hospital he refused to eat and drink and just asked his family to “let him go”. While many other officials are skeptical, officials at Mr. Gotho’s local record office were able to confirm the records were indeed genuine.

Mr Gotho stated last year that he did not want to live on the earth for much longer, he just wanted to die which is reasonable for the 146 supposed years that he has been here. He outlived all 10 of his siblings, four wives and even his children, just remaining with grandchildren​, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren.

According to his grandsons, he has been preparing his death since he was 122 years old. And in 1992 he bought a burial site near the ones of his children.

His funeral details have not been released yet and are most likely still being planned by his family. But how about that, 146 years old!
