Body Building relatives?

Was looking through some old family photos yesterday (ok i'll admit it, i was bored!) and came across some of my grandfather circa 1935 era posing following what i think was the charles atlas course. Reckoned he looked pretty good considering things like cardio and diet knowledge weren't what they are now. Unfortunately I can't ask him any questions since he died when I was about 9 y/o.

So my question, how many of you guys have had relatives who were into bodybuilding etc?

    my grandad wasnt a bodybuilder but he was a boxer back in his day. he used to box other farmers in barns. hes still alive, in fact, when i was in philippines a few years ago, he helped push start a car for my mate and i and he was like over 70 at that time, bare footed too.

    now he just sits in his hammock watching cock fights and drinking fire water (ginebra which is like 98% proof gin!)

    he wasnt an amateur or anything, just fought bare knuckled for some cold hard cash to buy some food for the animals on his farm and buy his gin!

    my cousin was a top BB'er.
    Michael (Mick) Johnson, he was the top boy for a while (a few year ago now) Flex did a full article on him.
    I think he was starting to get back into again.

    My grandad was a bodybuilder/powerlifter(yes both) but now he just works out and has decent muscles I might add! He has one a trophy, not sure of anything else.
    My dad is a M.A/bodybuilder.
    My uncle is a M.A
    My other uncle is(not as much as me) into bodybuilding.
    And there's me, bodybuilder
    Oh and there's my cousin who is a kick boxer, not sure if he works out but he's still skinny but has won a few trophies.
    Oh and my other uncle works out to.

    If we include everyone who trains...

    Every male family member I know of is either into martial arts, weights, rugby, or similar.

    If it's only pros then just my grandad.
