It is with deep regret that we report the death of one of our retired police officers.

Mr. Cymbaluk was a member of the VFW Post 335 of Cranford, and a Member of PBA Local 52 of Cranford. He was an accomplished gardener and an avid fisherman.
Mr. Cymbaluk is survived by his beloved wife of 66 years Marion Nordstrom Cymbaluk, his son Thomas Cymbaluk of Piscataway, daughters Suzanne Bibbo of Kissimmee, FL, and Janet Ashnault of Liberty Corner, his brothers Samuel Cymbaluk of Sebastian, FL, and William Cymbaluk of Cranford. Mr. Cymbaluk is also survived by his four cherished grandchildren Joseph, Brian, Stef, and Michelle.
