If the information I found on the net is correct, Mr. Heilberg was born Louis Max Heilberg in Cologne Germany on April 23, 1936. He and his family escaped Nazi Germany and were spared the holocast as so many fellow Jews where not. He arrived from Rotterdam to the United States to Manhattan on August 10, 1948. He became a naturalized citizen on August 26, 1954. He died so young at age 53 on June 8, 1989. Thinking back, I wish he might of shared his family's story of survival. Perhaps his horrible wartime experiences and his family's exodus from Europe manafested in his wit and humor, as a coping for all he experienced. May he rest in peace, and even though I am writting these words thirty years after his passing, there was so much more to Mr. Heilberg then what we could see as youngsters.

A truly good guy..passed at age 62 in Iowa in January 2014...we hung together a great deal, he was into jounalism, sports, and photography..died much too young! Born in Illinois July 14, 1951, about a week after I was..gives me a haunting feeling..read his inscription in my 1969 yearbook..so young and care free...may God rest and keep his soul...David Leavitt
