Gaffney, Richard C

Richard Cook Gaffney, Sr. beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather, went home to Heaven on Wednesday, October 28, 2015 at 3:47 pm.  He died surrounded by loved ones both present and by phone.  His last words, “I’m ready to go home”, were spoken only after he knew his wife was safe and being taken care of.  He was a great man with a great heart, full of energy and ideas, always ready to help, and known for the great love he shared with his wife.  He eclipsed a childhood of poverty, privation, and abandonment to provide a life full of love and plenty for his family.  He was a friend always at hand in need.  He will be sorely missed, and his passing creates a canyon in our lives which will never fully refill.  May God have mercy on his soul, and may he come to meet us when it is our time to come home.
