TRIBUTE: Colleagues of Ridgefield Park Police Sgt. Steven A. Sulborsky who died of a sudden illness last month, today launched a campaign to raise money for his two sons, ages 4 and 7.
“The goal is college and trust funds, whatever we can do to set them up for the future,” said Ridgefield Park Police Officer Nicholas Triano, the president of Central Bergen PBA Local #86.
An unexpected illness claimed Sulborsky’s life on April 30. He was 42.
“In his honor the Ridgefield Park Police Department and PBA Local #86 are committed to fulfilling all the hopes and dreams that Steve had for his young boys.”
Sulborsky grew up in Bogota and was graduated from Bogota High School in 1990. He went on to Rutgers University and later obtained a master’s degree from Seton Hall University.
After working for the Tenafly and Cresskill police departments, he joined the Ridgefield Park force in 1998.
Sulborsky became a detective in 2010 and a year later was appointed patrol sergeant. He served as a member of the force’s ceremonial honor guard and was also with two countywide rapid-deployment squads.
A past president of Local #86, Sulborsky also was an instructor in firearms and other weapons. He also received several service awards and two letters of commendation.
“We have now taken this challenge as his extended family to help his wife send his children to college,” his colleagues said.
