A longtime adviser to President Trump, Roger Stone, was found guilty on all counts in WikiLeaks hacking case during the 2019 presidential Impeachment hearing. He was found guilty of making false statements, obstruction of justice, and lying to Congress.
Surrounding the fall of Roger's decades-long political career, and Trump’s defense of his advisor via his tweets, this article covers how it all started; Roger Stone’s family life, along with his family information.
Roger Stone: Family Life
Roger was born on 27th August 1952 in Norwalk, Connecticut. However, his mindset turned into a conservative pathway after his family moved to a more rural area when he was just a kid. They settled in Lewisboro, Westchester, where his mother, Gloria Stone, was a journalist for a local newspaper, and his father, Roger Stone, ran a drilling facility.
Having a journalist mother probably helped to develop an interest in politics in Roger. He started volunteering at the local Republican headquarters every afternoon from a young age, and that’s how his career began as a conservative politician.
Roger’s First Wife
Roger was married to Ann Elizabeth Wesche, more popularly known as Ann Stone. The ex-couple tied the knot back on 15th June 1974.
A Republican herself, Ann met Roger at the George Washington University. But, while Roger dropped out of college to work for the then-president Richard Nixon’s re-election committee, Ann continued her studies. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in History and Communications.

And this choice of career led her to meet Roger. She was working as a photographer in the presidential campaigns of Ronald Reagan, and that’s where she met Roger.
Their connection was instantaneous, as they began dating shortly after their introduction. And the marriage has seen some bizarre acts. The couple liked to experiment in their sexual life. And this led to them posting a swinger advertisement, looking for single, male partners.
