Leo Eugene Blotsky, loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend has gone to be with the Lord.
Leo was born on September 28, 1942 to Peter and Mary A. (Bollinger) Blotsky in Raleigh, ND. He graduated from McIntosh High School in 1960. He worked for 4 years in high school for Harold Arnold Bros. Upon graduation, he enlisted in the Army as a Marksman and was honorably discharged on August 7, 1962.
He then moved to Anaconda, MT and worked at the Anaconda Smelter Plant for 13 years. He met his wife, whom he loved dearly, Georgia Ann (Marthaller) Blotsky, whom he married on October 10, 1972. Leo moved his family to Beulah, ND after they shut down the Smelter Plant to work at the Great Plain’s Coal Gasification Plant for 20 years, from which he retired. He and Georgia later moved to Fargo, ND to be closer to family.
He enjoyed spending most of his time with his beloved family. His hobbies included playing computer games, soaking up the sun, shooting pool, gambling at the casino, and spending time with his beautiful granddaughter, whom he loved dearly.
