August 25, 1940 - December 2, 2022
Leon Joseph Lysaght Jr. (Rocky) peacefully departed this earthly life on December 2, 2022, while his family and priest held vigil by his bedside. Leon was born August 25, 1940, to his devoted parents, Helen and Leon Lysaght, Sr. in Butte, Montana. He had an idyllic childhood immersed in Serbian and Butte culture, and he was blessed to have grown up around his beloved grandparents, Soke and Jovo Vucanovich. The profound intellectual and spiritual guidance fostered by his father and grandfather incited Leon’s evolving and passionate thirst for knowledge, truth, and his Eastern Orthodox Christian faith.
