It is with the deepest sadness that we regretfully inform the EECP community and the affiliated world of the passing of Simon Srybnik in New York. Mr. Srybnik was an early supporter of external counterpulsation (ECP and EECP) therapy through his investments and leadership in Living Data Technology and their cooperation with Life Enhancement Technologies in China. He later invested in Vasomedical’s EECP and merged both companies together securing market leadership, which has lasted to this day. While this area of his involvement in healthcare most concerns us in the EECP/ECP community, Mr. Srybnik’s investment, direction and leadership also touched on many other areas of healthcare research and development. His funding of and belief in EECP therapy, clinical biologic technology through Life Sciences and capital medical equipment technology has led to the growth of many companies whose products have benefited patients worldwide.
Mr. Srybnik’s involvement in the healthcare market, as great as it has been, paled to the contribution he made in his lifetime to industrialization, national defense, and the aviation industry just to name a few. His companies S & S, Kerns Manufacturing and others made successful the careers of Mr. Srybnik and his brothers Jay and Louis. As the youngest member of the U.S. War Board during World War II, Mr. Srybnik organized the selection and conversion of homeland manufacturing to the war machine producing everything from bullets to tanks and airplane parts needed to support the war effort.
During his lifetime he inspired the many people that he came in contact with to live their lives being highly creative, being productive and helping others. He was serious, funny, classy and a true gentleman. He will be missed and remembered by many. Our sincerest regrets go out to his wife Judy and the Srybnik Family.
A private family only Service will be held for Mr. Srybnik on Monday, July 30th, 2018 at 11:00 AM at the Sutton Place Synagogue located at 225 E 51st Street in New York City. Internment will follow at the Beth David Cemetery on Elmont Road, Elmont, NY.
