Garrett Goble, a six-year veteran of New York City Transit, was killed in an arson fire while operating a train on March 27.

His family joined us, TWU Local 100, and NYPD officials at a gathering at the Flatbush Av-Brooklyn College station, where plans for the memorial, including a dedication plaque, were announced. We’ll continue working with Garrett’s family on all aspects of the memorial.

A suspect in the case was arrested on December 18. Goble is survived by his wife, Delila; two sons; and his mother, Vicki.
