By 1991 he was the oldest living wizard and to celebrate his 755th birthday he invited everyone he knew over the past century or so to his house in Tinworth, Cornwall. The party was recorded by the Daily Prophet as 30 million people attended, including Albus Dumbledore and Elphias Doge.

781st Birthday Party Edit

In July 2017, Winkle was still alive and held his birthday party early, inviting over 45 million people to the occasion at his large house in Cornwall. The guests included Harry Potter, Ginny Weasley, Hermione Granger, Ronald Weasley, Minerva McGonagall, Filius Flitwick, Kingsley Shacklebolt and others.

It was the reason Albus Potter decided to take the matter of the death eaters at the Circle of Resurrection, into his own hands but Professor McGonagall was quick to return with aurors when it went wrong.

By the Third Wizarding War, Winkle was still alive but severly disabled.
