Cecil Rybak

Obituary Condolences

Cecil Rybak, 57 of Tyler Hill, PA died unexpectedly at the Geisinger Medical Center on September 12, 2011. He is the son of Joan (Abraham) Rybak and the late Arthur Rybak of Tyler Hill, PA. He is survived by his wife, Eliece (Olver) Rybak, one sister, Laurel Ann Flowers, one niece, Brandi Flowers, four children and six grandchildren. His children are Stuart Rybak and wife Elizabeth (Harkin) Rybak of Damascus, PA; Miriam (Rybak) McCarthy and husband Matthew McCarthy of Lexington, NC; Joseph Rybak and wife Tricia (Goetzmann) Rybak of Clemmons, NC; and Charity (Rybak)Cleary and husband Jayson Cleary of Summerville, SC.
Cecil has six grandchildren; one granddaughter, Hannah Rybak and five grandsons, Mitchell Rybak, Isaiah, Owen and Creedon McCarthy, and Grayson Rybak. Cecil was a dairy farmer all his life, taking over the Cecil Abraham Farm in Tyler Hill, PA when he was 19 years old. He had a love for horses since he was very young, but his greatest love and deepest affection was for his family, his wife and children. He spent his time and effort providing for them. He was truly a man who gave his life for his family.
He was a deacon of the First Baptist Church of Damascus and Chairman of the Board for the church and its school, Damascus Christian Academy. He loved greeting visitors at church and always had a ready smile and hand shake for people he met wherever he was. He took great pleasure in seeing old friends he came to know years ago while transporting cattle to the Wayne County Livestock Sale with his grandfather, Cecil Abraham.
Cecil's trust was in the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Savior as evidenced by the Christian life he lived. If his children were to choose a Scripture verse to describe their dad, it would be Micah 6:8: "He hath shown thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God." Words cannot possibly express how deeply he was loved and how profoundly he will be missed.
The funeral services will be at First Baptist Church of Damascus on Friday, September 16th and 10:30 a.m., with a viewing the night before at the Rasmussen Funeral Home in Narrowsburg, NY from 5 p.m.-8 p.m. Internment will be in Overlook Cemetery.
In leau of flowers, donations can be sent to: Damascus Christian Academy Scholarship Fund PO Box 71, Damascus, PA 18415 Or Dave Olver Wrestling Scholarship Fund c/o Fred Stanton, 628 Grove St. Honesdale, PA 18431
