Remembering President George H.W. Bush
SCRANTON, Pa. -- In 2018, Lear Von Koch is well known as a longtime heart surgeon in Scranton. In 1965, he was a freshman on the Yale baseball team alongside a young pitcher who would go on to some notoriety: George W. Bush, the 43rd president. Koch became good friends with George W. Bush, and it became evident early on that his dad was a pretty big deal.
