Canada’s oldest man passed away Sunday at 110 years old.
Dr. Robert Wiener was born in 1908 in Montreal. He grew up in the city’s Mile End area and studied dentistry at McGill University.
After becoming an oral surgeon, he established the first dentistry clinic at the Jewish General Hospital.
He also taught dentistry at his alma mater for more than 25 years.
Wiener, the tenth oldest man in the world according to the 110 Club, the largest supercentenarian forum, never suffered any serious illnesses.
His brother also lived a long life and died when he was 109 years old. The two of them participated in several studies, which examined their genetics.
Wiener’s family credit his longevity to good genes and a healthy lifestyle, Global News reported.
He died peacefully at Jewish General Hospital due to surgery complications from a procedure he had two weeks prior.
Wiener is predeceased by his daughter Lois and wife Ella of 72 years.
He is survived by his two sons, Neil and Ken, three grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
