Funeral held for Pa. boy who was parents’ best man

JEANETTE, Pa. (AP) — In his short life, a 2-year-old Pennsylvania boy who died days after he served as best man at his parents’ wedding touched the hearts of many people.

The Rev. Jan Zotter told a funeral audience Saturday that Logan Stevenson’s life “had an impact over the whole world.”

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review ( reported that about 75 family and friends attended the service at the Mason-Gelder Funeral Home in Jeannette, about 25 miles east of Pittsburgh.

Christine and Sean Stevenson had planned to marry next year but moved the ceremony to Aug. 3 so their son could participate after the couple learned he had weeks to live.

The child had leukemia and other medical complications, including a mass on his remaining kidney. He died Monday night in his mother’s arms.
