Ralph Scordino, the mayor of Babylon Village since 2002, has died at the age of 71.

The announcement of his death was made on the village’s Facebook page on Thursday. A woman who answered the phone at the village clerk’s office confirmed that Scordino had died.

No other details were given about his death.

Scordino was reelected to another term as mayor in 2019. He previously served as a village trustee.

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone called Scordino "a real giant in our community."

"Mayor Ralph Scordino dedicated his life to public service and to the village that he loved and led for so many years," Bellone said in a statement. "It is no coincidence that under his leadership Babylon Village thrived with a downtown that is regarded as one of the most vibrant in the region."
