He worked as a paramedic and managed an ambulance taxi service during World War II.

He supported the French resistance movement, which was mostly centered in the southeast, to fight Vichy regime collaborators by taking the injured to hospital.

Meys retired in 1967.

Usually, the French authorities give the title of Dean to the oldest living member of the department or region.

Meys took over the title from Martiniquais Jules Theobald, who was born on April 17, 1909, and died last October.

110-year-old Jeanne Mayet from the Puy-de-Dome department in the Rhone Alpes Auvergne is now believed to be the next successor and the oldest living person in France, the daily Le Progres has reported. (antara/anadolu/mcr20/jpnn)
