Treasured are the random encounters & greetings over the years & decades where we recognized each other's voice, or face despite its aging; for me, a tribute to childhood memories of years & decades of greetings as neighbours, when Time was somehow more abundant & kinder. Rest well now, TJ! until we meet yet again -- "My name is 419 Arnold Street"

I met Terry only once, in October 2014, when my father, Bob (one of Terry’s old school chums from McGill), and I stopped to visit Terry and Kay along the route of our reminiscent tour of Ontario’s near northland. Even from that brief encounter, Terry left an enduring impression. Last fall, he offered his friend, Bob, these words of advice: Skip ninety-two; go straight to ninety-three. I can easily imagine that Terry would have been a memorable instructor. I offer my condolences to Kay and family for your loss.

Kay & family.... Very sad to hear of Terry’s passing. Very much enjoyed his company over the years at many Pitman gatherings. Admired and respected his intelligence, engaging personanality, his passion for family, friends and life in general. Alway a bit mischievous with a twinkle in his eye. Thinking of you all!

My condolences to Terry's family. I had the great pleasure of working with Terry at Cambrian College. We also crossed paths many times after his retirement, often at Harbour Vue Marina.

I remember having some wonderful conversations with Mr Gaffney at the lighthouse, while I was attempting to sketch the island shoreline. He was a nice man with a great smile...and a good heart. Anyone I have met that crossed his path had nothing but utmost respect for this gentleman. Our deepest sympathies to the Gaffney clan...Moe.

I am deeply saddened by Terry's passing. He was such a good and a wonderful man. The world, as well as so many lives, was a better place because of him. He was one of a handful of favourite men in my life and your family an inspiration. My heart goes out to you, Kay, and to all you “kids.” Love, Mary Anne

My depest sympathies to the Gaffney family. As a kid in the neighbourhood on Arnold St I was privileged to grow up with this wonderful family.

My heart goes out to you in this difficult time. All my love Suzy.

I just wanted to let Terry's family know the respect we the civil engineering students had for him. Most of all it was his dedication and efforts that he put towards all of us. The fact that we had such a great time and fun with him will make us never forget him and keep his memory alive. Thank You Terry for making so many smart engineers.

Sincere condolences to the Gaffney Clan. My brother and I had the pleasure of having Terry as a teacher at Cambrian College 42 years ago. Fast forward to 2017 when we (my brother and I) were fortunate enough to be able to spend an hour (1 beer each) with Terry to take a trip down memory lane. So very glad to have had the opportunity to reconnect with such an amazing human being. May he RIP. Andy Conaty

My condolences to Terry's family. He was an inspiring teacher and I really appreciated his classes when I was a student at Cambrian. My notes of his classes in Rock Mechanics became well used teaching assists for me. He was a great friend too. And Terry was certainly a legend in my mind and no doubt to many others... Rest in peace Terry - you will always be remembered. Lionel Rudd
