ABC News reports:
Jimmy Carter is now the oldest-living former president in U.S. history at 94 years and 172 days old, surpassing George H.W. Bush. Bush, the 41st president, died on Nov. 30 at 94 years, 171 days old.
America’s founding president, George Washington, was the youngest former president to die — at 57 years and 67 days — in April 1789, nearly three years after he left office.
Before Thursday, Carter had already set the record for being the former president to live the longest after leaving office, at more than 38 years. Gerald Ford, the 38th president, was the previous record-holder. He died at 93, nearly 30 years after he left office.
