Leonard J. Stascavage

February 23, 1936 — August 11, 2022

Len Stascavage was born on February 23rd, 1936, the oldest of three children to Joseph and Mary Stascavage in Shenandoah, Pennsylvania.  He attended Villanova University and graduated in 1958 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering.  He met and started dating a red-headed firebrand by the name of Catherine McKenna, and their worlds would never be the same again.  They married in 1959 and started the exhausting process of raising eight kids.  They moved to Bowie, Maryland in 1961, one of the first families in the Belair development.  Len worked for the Naval Ordnance Laboratory (later renamed and relocated to the Naval Surface Weapons Center), and during his career earned a Master’s Degree in Reliability Engineering.  He was very proud when his daughter, Debbie, followed in his footsteps to become an Electrical Engineer.  Lunch dates with his daughter, Denise, would keep him smiling for days.  He took great delight in our annual beach house rental in the Outer Banks, watching the kids and grandkids enjoying the pool and the beach, and his Katie enjoying the hot tub.  Golf with his daughter, Laurie, and son, Steve, were a great pleasure to him, although winning would have been a greater pleasure.  Len was generous with blessings he received in this life, taking great joy in giving to his church, his family and his community.  He was not a wine snob—his go-to was Almaden box Cabernet—but he could tell you all about the grapes of the various high-end bottles he would get to enjoy with his family.  In his latter years, he enjoyed the attention of his daughters Lisa, Linda and Laurie who lived nearby and made sure that the man who had provided for his family for so many years would want for nothing.  He would sneak an extra glass of wine in the evenings despite Lisa’s instance that he didn’t.  Len is predeceased by his wife, Katie, and son, Rich.  He is survived by his children Jim (Kathi), Laurie, Debbie (Jim), Lisa, Steve (Monnie), Denise and Linda, and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  His granddog, Scout, is going to miss sitting on his lap watching the cars go by on Stonybrook Drive.  Len and Katie would dress up every Saturday for their date night dinner at Paul’s on the South River.  Dad, Mom is waiting to take you to the banquet.
