Chester J. Rybak, age 89, died with family by his side on Pearl Harbor Day, December 7, 2023. Chet was a proud veteran of the United States Army and devoted husband of more than 68 years to Sarah (Aites) Rybak. In addition to his wife, he leaves two sons, Michael Rybak and his wife Pam, of Grafton, and Brian Rybak and his wife Kim, of Columbia, SC; a daughter Marsha Caissie and her husband Bruce, of Northbridge; three grandchildren: Kristina Smith and her husband Jaxin, Haleigh, and Steven and his wife Chelsea; and several nieces and nephews.
The son of Frank and Anne (Mason) Rybak, Chet was born in Northbridge January 22, 1934. He graduated from Northbridge High School and attended Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Chester delivered coal and milk while working towards his dream job at Wyman Gordon, where he was employed for over 40 years. He worked as a metallurgist, helping to design airplane parts.
He was a long-time member of Saint Patrick's Church in Whitinsville. His favorite past times included fishing, golf, bowling and cutting the grass. He loved to attend Northbridge High School football games and was a volunteer coach for Northbridge Youth Baseball. After Chet retired, he and Sarah spent time travelling throughout New England. They especially loved spending time in Maine visiting Ogunquit, Boothbay, and Bar Harbor. When he developed Alzheimer's, it brought challenging moments for his family and he was no longer able to travel, though Chester could still enjoy playing cards and looking through old photographs with his family. He will be remembered as a quiet and loving man by his family and friends.
The family would like to thank the staff at Blackstone Valley Heath and Rehab for the loving care and support they provided for Chester.
