Please post some photos: the entire plants, the general location, plus close ups. We can't really help much without these.

it is quite normal for foliage of leyland Cypress not exposed to the light to turn brown and wither as the younger foliage grows longer. However if a tree is dead then it is gone and if it is affected by a root disease then it will probably spread to the adjoining trees. A photo would help.
