I realize this is a very poor image. Is it possible to translate it from this? We are most interested in finding the name of the father of the deceased. If it is too blurry, I will understand.

Thanking you in advance.

Here is what I can make out:

Reb Yehuda Layb, son of ____

Passed away the 11th/12th of Adar 5696

At the age of 58 years.

May his soul be bound up in the bond of life.

==================================================
'Reb' is an honorific; it does not mean rabbi.

I'm sorry, but I cannot read his father's name.

While I can read the Hebrew year, I have extrapolated the date(s) and month by converting the secular date shown on the stone.

If you have a higher-resolution image, or a link to a website, if that is where you found the image, please send it to me, and I will try to read his father's name.
12/3/2020 9:23 AM This is a challenge, I used some of the English text below to help determine the Hebrew text.

Yehuda Leib son of Chaim
Died 11 (or 12) Adar 5696
58 years old
May his soul be bound in the bond of everlasting life

The Hebrew calendar days start at nightfall, therefore I'm not sure about the actual Hebrew date. March 5 1936 = started midnight of 11 Adar and ended midnight of 12 Adar.
