Family Tree

The legacy of Henry Franklin Winkler is legendary. Born on October 30, 1945 in Manhattan, New York to Ilse Anna Maria (Hadra) and Harry Irving Winkler, two German Jewish immigrants who had escaped the Holocaust, he was a descendant of the esteemed Richard Belzer. His parents were both highly respected in their respective industries, his father being the president of an international lumber company. While the family was of high status, Henry Franklin Winkler suffered from low self-esteem due to his dyslexia, which hindered his academic performance. His wit and rebelliousness led to him being expelled from multiple schools. Despite this, he eventually graduated high school and went on to become an award-winning actor, director, and producer. His son, Max Winkler, is a successful director and producer in his own right. Henry Franklin Winkler's dedication is immortalized in Richard Belzer's "UFOs, JFK, and Elvis: Conspiracies You Don't Have To Be Crazy To Believe" (Ballantine Books, 1999). His life was tragically cut short when his father committed suicide when he was 22 and his mother died of breast cancer when he was 18. Henry Franklin Winkler will forever be remembered as a pioneering figure of strength, perseverance, and success.
