Construction Flagger Steve Rybkin Lost to Virus

He was a parishioner of St. Kateri Tekakwitha Church in LaGrangeville and a member of the Hudson Valley Sportsmen’s Association.  He is survived by his wife of 17 years, Michelle Garcia-Rybkin; his sons, Stephen Rybkin, Jr., and Gabriel; dauther, Jessica; his brothers, Paul, Michael and John Rybkin, and sister Ludmila Weistreich.  Also, his goddaughter, Maryann Leibmann; and many nieces and nephews.

Local 100 President Tony Utano offered his condolences to the family and Brother Rybkin’s friends and co-workers on the job.  “Every death of one of our Brother and Sister Transit Workers from this terrible disease gets more and more difficult to comprehend.  With Thursday being Passover and Holy Thursday, and Sunday being Easter, I am hoping that this week will be the beginning of the end of this fight.”
