Svetozar Milosevic, father of Slobodan Milosevis was born in Ljevorecki Tuzi, a small, remote village in northern Montenegro. He had become a highschool teacher of religion, Russian and Serbo-Croatian in Titograd (Now known as Podgorica) Montenegro's capital. Svetozar was also a deacon in the Serbian Orthodox Church. He married Stanislava and they moved to Pozarevac, south-east of Belgrade, where Slobodan and his older brother Borislav were born. After the World War II he left his family and returned to his native Montenegro abandoning his family when his children were young. In 1962, committed suicide by shooting himself in the head. He left no note. One suggestion is that he was driven to this act by a student who took his own life after Svetozar had given him low marks. Neither his wife nor their sons attended Svetozar's funeral. Borislav arrived the following day; Slobodan, who was in Russia on a scholastic field trip, never even went to visit his father's grave.

He is buried in Lijeve Reka in Montenegro.
