Georges Massard (2 November 1906 – 24 November 2016) was a French supercentenarian who was, at the age of 110 years, 22 days, the oldest living man in France, and the last Frenchman born before 1908. He was also the last man in Europe, born in 1906. His case is currently unverified by the GRG.


Massard was born on 2 November, 1906 in Issy-les-Moulineaux (Hauts-de-Seine). He worked as an inspector for Compagnie Générale des Eaux. He was married but had no children.

He lived alone at home until the age of 106. In 2013, he moved into a retirement home in Grandcamp-Maisy (Normandy). At 109, he lost his hearing, but generally he was in a good shape, still managed to have conversations with staff and visitors.

Massard died on 24 November 2016. His successor as oldest living man in France is Roger Auvin (born 20 March 1908).
