Thomas J. Rybitski, 72, of Moscow, Pa., was called home to the Lord on April 12, 2019. He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Sandra Campo Rybitski. His family is deeply saddened and broken-hearted by his passing. Tom faced many years of struggle with courage, dignity and faith.

Born in Scranton, Pa., son of the late Joseph and Cecelia Lipinski Rybitski, he was a graduate of Johnson College, formerly Johnson School of Technology. He worked for Consolidated Rail Co. as a supervisor. As a member of St. Catherine of Siena Church he was a past Grand Knight of the Knights of Columbus Council 6050. Tom was a man of great faith who for 28 years served his parish in perpetual adoration. Before being stricken with many serious illnesses Tom was an avid bowler, volunteered at the Lackawanna County Visitors Center and the North Pocono Public Library. He enjoyed reading and was a dedicated Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Yankees fan. Tom adored and cherished more than anything his grandchildren. He never missed an opportunity to attend his grandchildren's sporting events and loved to go fishing with his grandsons. Tom also cherished time spent with family at the beach.
