Leonard J. Wysocki, Jr., 51, of Slovan, passed away on Monday, September 26, 2022 in Weirton Medical Center.
Leonard was born on October 25, 1970, in Washington, a son of Leonard J. Wysocki, Sr. and Evelyn D. (Bartoletti) Wysocki of Slovan.
Mr. Wysocki was the hardest worker you would ever meet. The ongoing joke was that Leonard started working at the age of eight and never stopped! Leonard’s parents taught him the value of hard work and Leonard maintained that value throughout his life. Mr. Wysocki and his wife owned Wysocki Inc in Burgettstown. He worked so hard that it grew to one of the top Big Tex franchises in North America. He enjoyed his time at work, and work was never truly work, just something that he enjoyed doing.
Although his company was a huge part of his life, nothing compared to the spot that his family filled. Leonard was an extremely proud husband, father and son. His love for his family stretched beyond what anyone could ever imagine. You knew when you met Leonard just how important his girls were to him. His loving wife, Kara and he created a beautiful life together. Their love for each other was the center of their relationship and it truly showed. Leonards’ favorite job was being a father. The days his girls were born were the best days of his life. He cherished his girls more than anything in the world and was their biggest supporter in life. Leonards’ caring nature is evident in his three daughters, and through them and his wife, a little piece of this amazing man will live on.
Surviving along with his parents are, his loving wife and best friend, Kara (Weaver) Wysocki, daughters, Emily, Madeline and Karina Wysocki, uncles, Donald (Toni), John (Susan), and Michael Bartoletti, aunt Gidget Bartoletti, former wife, Lori (Froats) Kasanzale, several nieces and nephews, and his special four legged friend, Lucky.
Leonard is preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, John and Mary Bartoletti, fraternal grandparents, Benjamin and Pauline Wysocki, uncle, Richard Bartoletti, aunt Judy Schwab and cousin, Jennifer Bartoletti.
