Jon Brower Minnoch was an American man, who at his peak weight, was said to be the heaviest human ever recorded, weighing about 1,400 lbs (635 kilograms; 100 stone). However, this figure was a just a close estimation because his tremendous size, lack of mobility, and declining health prevented the use of a scale. The Washington man Minnoch suffered from a condition named generalized edema, which is believed to have contributed considerably to his bulk. The condition causes abnormal accumulation of fluid in the body tissues which results in excessive weight gain and certain serious medical issues. He was hospitalized and treated at the University of Washington Medical Center for some time. After his condition became worse and ultimately incurable, the medical professionals stopped treating him and Minnoch died 23 months later, at age 41. At the time of death, the heavy man weighed about 800 lbs (or 363 kg). Coming to his personal life, Minnoch was married to Jeannette who weighed around 110-lb. This made the record for the greatest difference in weight between a married couple. He was also the father of two children.
Here are some photos of him when he was alive
