Martin Konigsberg

Martin Konigsberg, Woody Allen’s father, died Monday Jan. 8. He was 100.

The filmmaker said that recently a family doctor had told him his father “could pass a draft physical tomorrow.”

Konigsberg, who turned 100 on Dec. 25, was a former restaurant waiter and jewelry engraver.

“My father is a classic example of a guy who smoked two packs a day since he was 16, eats two eggs for breakfast and meat for dinner seven days a week (and) dishes of ice cream before bed at night,” said Allen, who was born Allen Stewart Konigsberg.

Along with his son, Konigsberg is survived by his wife of nearly 70 years, Nettie, ; his daughter, film producer Letty Aronson; eight grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
