109 Year Old Beret Wearer

Arévalo Garijo Innocent died on March 31, 2011 at the age of 109. Arévalo Garijo was named the 'grandfather of La Rioja'.
He was the oldest person of La Rioja and one of the oldest men in Spain (there are only three other people aged 109 in Spain).
Often asked about his secret to living so many years, he always answered the same " through God, there is no secret" and added that "every day, every morning, the first thing I do when I wake up is have a drink of water".
