Johnson Parks (October 15, 1884 – July 17, 1998) was an American supercentenarian and one of only three black men (the other two are Mathew Beard and James Sisnett) who indisputably reached age 113. At the time of his death, he was 113 years, 275 days.
Johnson Parks only held the oldest living man title for 85 days, making him one of the shortest tenure of oldest living man.
At the time of his death, as the 5th oldest person in the world, Parks was the second oldest undisputed male ever, behind only Christian Mortensen.
