George Rene Francis (born June 6, 1896) is, at age 111, a supercentenarian who is the joint second-oldest living man in the world, together with Englishman Henry Allingham. He is also the oldest living man in the United States. Francis lives in California. Since the death of fellow 111-year-old Thomas D. Nelson, Sr. on January 9, 2007, he is the oldest living American male.[1]

Francis resides in Sacramento, California, but traces his roots to New Orleans, Louisiana. He credits his long life to nature, and enjoys a rich diet of pork, eggs, milk and lard. He gave up smoking cigars at the age of 75.[2]
