Has any seven footer managed to live upto 100 years or more?

As far as I know famed economist John Kenneth Galbraith who was 6'9" managed to live upto 97 years.

Also Jakob Nacken and Martin Van Buyten who were both at least 7"4" lived till 81.

There is a known correlation between height and longevity. Generally, shorter people live longer.

Thanks.
But while a number of 7 footers have lived well into their 80s and some even in 90s.
But has their been a case of a 7 foot centenarian?
