Garry Kent Marshall (November 13, 1934 – July 19, 2016)was an American film director, film producer, screenwriter and actor. He started his career in the 1960s writing for I Love Lucy , and The Dick Van Dyke Show before he developed Neil Simon's 1965 play The Odd Couple for television in 1970. He gained notoriety for creating Happy Days (1974-1984), Laverne and Shirley (1976-1983), and Mork and Mindy (1978-1982). He is also known for directing directing Overboard (1987), Beaches (1988), Pretty Woman (1990), Runaway Bride (1999) and the family films The Princess Diaries (2001), and The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement (2004). He also directed the romantic comedy ensemble films Valentine's Day (2010), New Year's Eve (2011), Mother's Day (2016).
Garry Kent Marshall was born in The Bronx, New York, on November 13, 1934, the only son and the eldest child of Anthony "Tony" Masciarelli (later Anthony Wallace Marshall; 1906–1999), a director of industrial films and producer, and Marjorie Irene (née Ward; 1908–1983), the owner and teacher in a tap dance school.He was the brother of actress/director Penny Marshall and Ronny Marshall Hallin, a television producer. His father was of Italian descent, his family having come from San Martino sulla Marrucina, Chieti, Abruzzo, and his mother was of German, English, and Scottish ancestry. His father changed his last name from Masciarelli to Marshall before his son Garry was born. Garry Marshall was baptized Presbyterian and also raised Lutheran for a time.
He attended De Witt Clinton High School and Northwestern University, where he wrote a sports column for The Daily Northwestern , and was a member of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity.Beginning in 1956, Marshall served a stint in the U.S. Army as a writer for Stars and Stripes and Seoul News, and was production chief for Armed Forces Radio Network; serving in Korea.
Marshall began his career as a joke writer for such comedians as Joey Bishop and Phil Foster and became a writer for The Tonight Show with Jack Paar.He originally partnered with writer Fred Freeman.
In 1961, he and Freeman moved to Hollywood, where they broke into writing sitcoms on The Joey Bishop Show . Freeman, however, found that he didn't enjoy sitcom work, and moved back to New York. Marshall soon teamed up with new writing partner Jerry Belson, and the two worked as a team through the 1960s. The pair worked on The Dick Van Dyke Show , The Joey Bishop Show, The Danny Thomas Show , and The Lucy Show . Their first television series as creator-producers was Hey, Landlord , which lasted one season (1966–67). Then they adapted Neil Simon's play The Odd Couple for television. Moving into the 1970s, Marshall worked on his own or with others, and created Happy Days , Laverne & Shirley (starring his sister Penny, who had earlier had a recurring role on The Odd Couple ), and Mork & Mindy , which were produced by his associates Thomas L. Miller, Robert L. Boyett, and Edward K. Milkis.He was also a co-creator of Makin' It , which the three men also produced.
In the early 1980s, he met Héctor Elizondo while playing basketball, and they became great friends. Elizondo appeared in every film that Marshall directed, beginning with his first feature film Young Doctors in Love . Elizondo once noted that he is written into all of Marshall's contracts whether he wanted to do the film or not.
In the opening credits of Exit to Eden (their eighth film together), Elizondo is credited "As Usual ... Hector Elizondo". In 1984, Marshall had a film hit as the writer and director of The Flamingo Kid .
Marshall wore many hats during this period of his career: most of his hit television series were created and executive produced by him. His first producing assignment came with Hey, Landlord in 1966. He stepped up the very next year, producing The Lucy Show. [ citation needed ]Then came successes in producing The Odd Couple, Laverne & Shirley, Blansky's Beauties , Mork & Mindy, Angie, and Happy Days. He launched independent productions through his theater (The Falcon in Toluca Lake) and in association with productions launched with talent he was grooming and working with for years.
One such project titled Four Stars was directed by Lynda Goodfriend (who portrayed Lori Beth in Happy Days), and was based on a play Goodfriend had read when she was studying at the Lee Strasberg Center, which had been written by John Schulte and Kevin Mahoney. It starred Julie Paris (the daughter of Jerry Paris) and Bert Kramer. Schulte later co-wrote with TV veteran writer and producer Fred Fox, Jr., who penned and produced a number of Marshall's television series, including Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley.Marshall went on to focus on directing feature films, with a series of hits, such as Beaches , Pretty Woman , The Princess Diaries , Valentine's Day , and New Year's Eve .
Marshall was also an actor, appearing in Murphy Brown and in such films as Soapdish , On the Lot , and Lost in America , and provided a guest-starring voice for The Simpsons episodes "Eight Misbehavin' " and "Homer the Father". He also appeared in two episodes of Happy Days as a drummer. He was also a drummer in the second last scene of The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement.
His theater credits included Wrong Turn at Lungfish, which he wrote in collaboration with Lowell Ganz,The Roast with Jerry Belson, Shelves and Happy Days: A New Musical with Paul Williams, which had its premiere at the Falcon Theater in Burbank, California, February 24, 2006. He portrayed the role of "director" on Burbank's "Lights... camera... action!" float in the 2014 Rose Parade. In 2014, Marshall appeared in a guest star role in a February episode in season 11 of Two and a Half Men .
In 1997, he co-authored the memoir Wake Me When It's Funny with his daughter Lori Marshall.[ citation needed ]
Marshall married Barbara Sue Wells on March 9, 1963.They had three children, including Scott Marshall.
On the morning of July 19, 2016, Marshall, aged 81, died at a hospital in Burbank, California, due to complications of pneumonia after suffering a stroke.

Mork & Mindy is an American sitcom television series that aired on ABC from September 14, 1978 to May 27, 1982. A spin-off after a highly successful episode of Happy Days, it starred Robin Williams as Mork, an extraterrestrial who comes to Earth from the planet Ork, and Pam Dawber as Mindy McConnell, his human friend and roommate, who eventually becomes his wife and the mother of his child.
Happy Days is an American sitcom television series that aired first-run on the ABC network from January 15, 1974, to July 19, 1984, with a total of 255 half-hour episodes spanning 11 seasons. Created by Garry Marshall, the series was one of the most successful of the 1970s, a sweet vision of life in the mid-1950s to mid-1960s Midwestern United States, and starred Ron Howard as Richie Cunningham, Henry Winkler as his friend Fonzie, and Tom Bosley and Marion Ross as Richie's parents, Howard and Marion Cunningham. Although it opened to mixed reviews from critics, Happy Days became successful and popular over time.
Laverne & Shirley is an American sitcom television series that played for eight seasons on ABC from January 27, 1976, to May 10, 1983. A spin-off of Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley followed the lives of Laverne DeFazio and Shirley Feeney, two friends and roommates who work as bottle-cappers in the fictitious Shotz Brewery in late 1950s Milwaukee, Wisconsin. From the sixth season onwards, the series' setting changed to mid-1960s Burbank, California. Michael McKean and David Lander co-starred as their friends and neighbors Lenny Kosnowski and Andrew "Squiggy" Squiggman, respectively; along with Eddie Mekka as Carmine Ragusa, Phil Foster as Laverne's father Frank DeFazio, and Betty Garrett as the girls' landlady Edna Babish.
