Levon was a much loved popular professor at AUB/Haigazian.
He would come to class with bloodshot eyes as if he had not slept the night before. He probably had not. He was a nicotine addict, when he ran out of cigarettes he would beg the students, and when offered filtered ones he would break the filters before lighting them.
You forgot to mention his stubborn coughs and the way he used to thump his chest, whenever students told him that he is killing himself he would say "T@ghas mek or aveli mek or pakas asank anank biti merninq".
Also his coffee mug was the glass beaker that the assistants used to prepare on the bunson burner for him.
I am sure these two surgeons are Levon’s sons. I have seen Raffy, the plastic reconstructive surgeon on many TV shows.

American Surgeons Take Part in Hospital Opening in Artsakh
STEPANAKERT—For decades, the Central Republican Hospital in Stepanakert remained the cornerstone of medical and surgical care in Nagorno-Karabakh. The advanced medical care provided by the staff at the hospital remained high, despite limitations in modern technology available for diagnostic and therapeutic treatment.
Board certified surgeons Dr. Hratch Karamanoukian and Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian visited the Central Republican Hospital in September prior to the commencement ceremony of the new hospital on September 24, 2013. The surgeons provided new equipment and instruments to the Department of Plastic & Reconstructive surgery headed by Dr. Igor Zakharyan. The instruments will allow Drs. Karamanoukian and Dr. Zakharyan to spearhead a new microsurgical program for complex facial and body reconstruction. “The level of expertise at the hospital is amazing,” commented Dr. Hratch Karamanoukian, “but there are limitations in the availability of complex surgical instrumentation and diagnostic modalities.”
One of the key discussions made by the surgeons was the feasibility of accessing the medical expertise in Nagorno Karabakh for medical tourism. “The surgeons and anesthesiologists are well trained and capable,” reported Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian, a plastic surgeon in Los Angeles. The two doctors were provided a tour of the new facilities and discussed the implementation of advanced surgical protocols for the new hospital. Instrumental in the exchange was Deputy Minister of Health, Dr. Karen Ghukasyan, an expert in the field of surgical urology.
The surgeons are both Fellows of the American College of Surgeons and have made several trips to Nagorno Karabakh. “The advancement of medical technology and surgical expertise in Nagorno Karabakh remains a priority for us as Armenian physicians,” says Dr. Hratch Karamanoukian.
