Number of Grandchildren

I have 3 grandchildren. My first grandchild - a boy - was born on December 13, 2011. Calder Staton Koon is my daughter Leslie's first born. Leslie's second child, Neva Lillian Koon, was born on September 21, 2014. My daughter Sara adopted a beautiful baby boy when he was just 2 months old. Jorden Trent McKosky was born on November 3, 2016.


I graduated from Northwestern University in 1969, and, after a brief stint in the Air Force, graduated from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law in 1973.

I spent about 28 years practicing law in Pittsburgh as a partner in the firm of Stonecipher, Cunnningham, Beard & Schmitt, concentrating in commercial and bankruptcy law, particularly Chapter 11 reorganizations of Pittsburgh corporations. I retired from that practice in 2002, and now enjoy doing part-time estate planning. I also enjoy doing community service including driving a senior citizen bus in Forest Hills a few days a month, as well as playing golf and walking my Jack Russell terrier in Frick Park. My wife and I enjoy bicycling together. We completed a 3-day bike ride in September, 2014, from Frostburg, MD back to Pittsburgh.

I married my soul mate Leah in 1998. She just recently stepped down from the position of Assistant Dean of the School of Nursing at Duquesne University. She has retired as a faculty member, but will be active in the School's Alumni Association. Between us we have 5 children, 4 daughters, 3 in Pittsburgh and 1 in Los Angels, CA and a son in Los Angeles, CA. We also have 3 grandchildren.

School Story:

My favorite memory was making the movie for the Senior Variety Show, "Life in an Institution" with my best friends Greg Young, Thom Kelly and Paul Zabetakis (Mildew Productions).

I met Buzz in Junior High and we were friends ever since. I don’t think I ever had a class with Buzz, and we weren’t neighbors, so we were never “close” friends, but I always enjoyed his company. One of my memories is convincing school administration to let us form a Boys' cheerleading team for the last home football game our senior year. Buzz was part of our squad. As you can see from the picture on page 57 of our Mt. Lebanon Log, we had a blast!

RIP, old friend.

Hi Barb
I got your check for the three 70th Birthday Bash events but you didn't tell me which dinner Entrée you want for Saturday's dinner. Please let me know. When I registered you on our Event Planner, I selected chicken for you, but I can easily change that once I hear from you.
Thanks, Roger
