95th birthday

The February 15 1930 Toronto Globe contained this birthday notice:

This is a bit off-putting: if Mr. Tyerman was “remarkably alert for his years”, he would be able to realize that this article was a wee bit condescending.

I was morbidly curious, so I wondered: how many more birthdays was Mr. Tyerman able to celebrate? The answer, sadly, was one at most: he is listed in the 1930 Toronto city directory, but not in the 1931 city directory.
