Pensioner Who Broke Four World Records After Turning 100 Has Passed Away Aged 108

Pensioner Who Broke Four World Records After Turning 100 Has Passed Away Aged 108

A daredevil pensioner known for his age-defying stunts has passed away at 108 after breaking four world records between the ages of 104 and 107.

Jack Reynolds, who became the oldest person to get a tattoo, ride a rollercoaster, ride a zip wire and perform as a supporting artist on a TV show, died on Saturday afternoon surrounded by his family.

The great-grandfather, who was dubbed the Centenarian Daredevil by Guinness World Records, wanted to take part in the challenges to raise money for charity.

Mr Reynolds' daughter, Jayne Goodwin, told Metro: "There will be the massivest gap in my life. There will just be a big void but he's left his legacy."

She went on to explain how mourners had come out to drink whisky and pay tribute outside her father's bungalow in Hollingwood, Chesterfield.

"He's got grandchildren, great grandchildren, future great-great grandchildren who will never forget him. Their children for many years to come just have to look him up. He will never be forgot."

Mr Reynolds began capturing the hearts of the nation back when he completed the ice bucket challenge at the age of 102.

Two years later (and not much wiser) he then started earning world records when he became the oldest person to get a tattoo which simply read 'Jacko 6.4.1912'.

At 105 he bagged another record and became the oldest person to ride a roller coaster, then at 106 he was the oldest person to ride a zip wire - which was aired on national television.

His fourth and final record was completed at 107 when he became the oldest person to act in a soap opera, thanks to a brief stint on Hollyoaks.

Rest in peace, Jack.
