Terrence “Terry” J. Garbuzinski, 46
Veteran and Captain in U.S. Navy Reserve
Defense and Space Industry Vice President

Terrence “Terry” J. Garbuzinski, 46, of Laurie Lane, North Attleboro, a “true patriot” who trained hundreds of submarine crews as an officer in the U.S. Navy and a devoted family man, died on Thursday, March 25, 2010 as a result of injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident when his vehicle was struck by a wrong-way driver on Route 95 North in Stonington, Connecticut. He was the husband of Jennifer R. (McDaid) Garbuzinski to whom he was married on June 18, 1988.

Born in Memphis, Tennessee on October 3, 1963, he was a son of Henry J. Garbuzinski of Memphis, Tennessee and the late Margaret (Edmundson) Garbuzinski.

Mr. Garbuzinski was a 1981 graduate of Christian Brothers High School in Memphis, Tennessee and earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Economics from the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland in 1985.

Raised and educated in his native Memphis, Tennessee, he moved to North Attleboro on July 31, 1991 having previously resided in Warwick, Rhode Island for two years.

“He had the highest integrity and ethics,” said his brother-in-law Edwin A. McDaid. “He was a dedicated husband and family man and he was completely dedicated to his country and the Navy.”

Since January 1993, he worked closely with the U.S. Navy as an engineer and vice president of Sonalysts, Inc., a defense and space industry company based in Waterford, Connecticut, with a dozen offices around the country with clients in government, corporate and entertainment industries.

Following his graduation from the Naval Academy, Mr. Garbuzinski was a nuclear power training student from September 1985 until January 1987. He was then employed as a Division Officer for the U.S. Navy from March 1987 – July 1990 aboard the USS Philadelphia and from August 1990 until October 1992 he served as an instructor for the U.S. Navy at a navy submarine school.

He was a decorated nuclear submarine officer while on active duty and traveled all over the world for the past 15 years in the Navy Reserves to train submarine crews. “He was a person of the highest caliber. He basically dedicated his life to the U.S. Navy and the U.S. submarine force,” said Capt. Dennis McKelvey, his immediate supervisor.

Mr. Garbuzinski was a member of the U.S. Naval Academy Alumni, the U.S. Gold Dolphins Association, the U.S. Naval Nuclear Power School Alumni, the U.S Naval Academy Alumni Association and Foundation and the U.S. Naval Academy Blue and Gold Officers.

In 2008, Mr. Garbuzinski was the recipient of the distinguished Robert M. Thompson Award for outstanding civilian leadership that is awarded to a civilian, government official or retired officer who has made a personal contribution to furthering the importance of sea power through his or her efforts as a civilian. It is the highest national award bestowed upon civilians.

Along with his wife and family, he traveled all over the world and through his work travels and personal trips he was able to pack a lifetime of memories into the two decades he treasured with his wife and children.

Although a Tennessee native his allegiance as a “sports fanatic” was with the Boston teams that he grew to love and support, especially the Boston Red Sox.

His family will remember him best as a wonderful and dedicated husband and father who devoted himself tirelessly to them.

He was a communicant of St. Mark Roman Catholic Church in the Attleboro Falls section of North Attleboro.

In addition to his wife of almost 22 years and his father, he leaves two sons: Michael James Garbuzinski and John Patrick Garbuzinski both at home in North Attleboro; two sisters: Stephanie Dowdy of Louisville, Kentucky and Patricia Garbuzinski of Clarksville, Tennessee; a brother: Henry Garbuzinski of Memphis, Tennessee; his father-in-law and mother-in-law: William J., Sr. and Jane A. (Kennealey) McDaid of Canton; a sister-in-law: Linda A. McDaid of Hayward, California; two brothers-in-law: William J. McDaid, Jr. of Brooklyn, New York and Edwin A. McDaid of Canton and two nieces.

He was the brother of the late Mary E. “Mary Beth” Garbuzinski.

Dear Garbuzinski Family,

Although I only worked with Terry a short time, I knew from our first meeting that he was a special person. He was truly devoted to his family and his work. I am privileged to have worked with him and better for knowing him. To his credit, he had that effect on many in the Navy. He will be sorely missed.

Dear Garbuzinski Family,
Please know that we out here at Submarine Squadron One and the Pacific Fleet Submarine Force in general share in your grief and we will miss Terry greatly. Over the years our paths crossed on an unpredictable yet recurring basis and through it all I always greatly enjoyed working or just talking with Terry. A gentleman, his kindness and understanding always shown through. On a professional level, his contribution to our Navy and the safety of our submarine crews through his work was truly profound. We will miss him and proffer our keenest wish for peace, solace and understanding as you grieve and look for meaning in this time of sorrow.

As one of those submariners whom Terry trained on a number of occasions, I wanted to express my sympathy and fellow sense of loss for you and yours. Terry was one of the finest officers with whom I have ever worked--meticulously and masterfully competent, yet being one of few such people that also had an empowering ability to relate to people with his sincerity and charisma. His passing is a loss to both his family and the Navy family of people with whom he worked to do so many outstanding things.
With my sincere condolence,

Dear Jennifer, Michael and John,

I was truly shocked and saddened when I heard the news about Terry.

Terry was a key fixture for our Submarine Force. Before you deploy you just knew that Terry was going to pay you a visit and help prepare your team to be successful on deployment. Though Terry was an expert in his field, he was always so careful not to condemn the mistakes of others. His emphasis was to train, not to criticize, which is one of the reasons I think he was so successful. I was fortunate to have benefited from Terry’s training on many occasions.

Just two weeks ago Terry sent me an email to provide me information that he felt would be important for me to have. It wasn’t something he had to do. It was something he felt he should do. It was typical Terry. He was doing the right thing.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all in this time of sorrow.

Sincerely,
John Zimmerman

Dear Jennifer, Michael and John: Like so many in the Navy and Sonalysts families, I knew Terry well and appreciated his wisdom, sense of humor and advice many times over the past 15 years.

As a former submarine officer, Sonalysts partner and fellow Red Sox fan, Terry and I shared much. Terry had his passions and he will be sorely missed. I think I can safely say that those that knew Terry knew that he was a class act and patriot!

Dear Jennifer, Michael, and John,

No words express the sorrow. Terry was a man to admire. He often talked about his family, loved being a husband and dad. He was also a hard working man who would conscientiously return every phone call or email message even when he was on the other side of the world. We worked together for many years, he was a brother to me. It was always such a pleasure to talk with Terry, on the phone, especially in person. Many people here in Panama City know Terry, he was esteemed by all. May God comfort you and bless you.

Jennifer, Michael, John and family,

It's safe to say there are few if any submarine officers from the last few decades who didn't know and respect Terry. We all owed him thanks, and appreciated all he did for us. Those of us privileged enough to work with him as partners at Sonalysts had the added benefit of getting to know him better over the years. The shock of his loss was felt around the world and saddened thousands.

Our prayers are with you, and we sincerely grief with you your loss.
God Bless,

Dear Mrs. Garbuzinski and family,
I offer my deepest condolences for your great loss. Terry was legendary throughout the submarine force for his keen tactical insights and thorough professionalism. More than that, he was universally known for being one of the nicest people on the planet and a great friend to anyone who ever knew him. It was an honor to have known Terry and work with him the past 8 years. Everyone I know at COMSUBPAC is saddened by this tragic loss. He is deeply missed. I trust he is with the Lord in a much better place now.

Michelle and I are deeply saddened by this tragic loss. Terry was a truly wonderful person and a great friend. During his many trips out here to Hawaii, it was always clear how much he loved and cared for you. At the same time, he cared about us. He always worked hard to make sure we stayed connected to the extended Sonalysts family, despite the distance. His kindness truly touched our hearts. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

I was a student of Terry's when I was an Ensign at Submarine School in 1992. We all have had many teachers in life, most of whom we can't remember. But we all remember the great ones and Terry was one of them. For the past two years I have had the privilege of working with Terry at DEVRON 12. He was truly a great American. We are all praying for you!

My deepest sympathies to the Garbuzinski family. I first met him over 10 years ago when he trained me as a Junior Officer. I was fortunate to remain close to him and his wealth of knowledge since then as a Department Head, co-worker at DEVRON TWELVE and too briefly as an XO. He was a consumate gentlemen, a fabulous teacher and a great friend. I miss him terribly - my thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Terry was not only a consummate professional, a dedicated educator, and a devoted patriot, he was a really nice person who was always willing to go the extra mile to make the U.S. Submarine Force the best it could be. I have know Terry for over 16 years and had the pleasure of participating in his expert training as a submarine department head, an executive officer, a commanding officer, and major commander. I am deeply sorry for this traject and horric event and can only pray that his family knows that the fraternal nature of the submarine force will always be here for support. My wife and I express our most sincerest condolances for your loss.

Our deepest sympathies to all of you for the tragic loss of your husband and father. We had the pleasure of meeting Terry just a few weeks ago when he came to our home as the Blue and Gold Officer to interview my son Andrew for entry into the Naval Academy. He was very helpful and gracious taking time to answer all our questions in a detailed and thoughtful way. He even shared the story of how he met Jennifer on a Saint Patrick’s Day in Boston back in the 1980’s. We are grateful to have met Terry however briefly, and so sad to hear of his passing. Our fervent prayers are with all of you.

Dear Jennifer, Michael and John,
Pippa and I can only offer our deepest sympathy. I would also like to pass on the condolences of my predecessors, former Royal Navy exchange officers at CSDS 12, all of whom spoke very highly of Terry. He was a great bloke and I held him in the very highest regard both professionally and personally. I know many people will remark on what a patriot he was and what a great servant to the USN, they are entirely right to do so. My overriding memory, however, is of a first rate man, committed to his family, who I had the good fortune to call my friend.
Yours sincerely,

Jennifer, Michael, John, and all of Terry's family and friends,

My career has crossed paths with Terry several times since we first met in 1996. I always looked forward to any opportunity to talk with him or to sit in on one of his pre-deployment training sessions, and I worked with him on a regular basis in my current job for the past year and a half on the CNO's staff in Washington, D.C.

I was grief-stricken when I received the terrible news on Friday morning. No words I can say will convey the feeling of loss all of us who worked with Terry feel, and I can't imagine how much more difficult it is for you, his family.

It would be impossible to quantify the long-lasting positive impact Terry had not just on our submarine force but also on our national security. Terry was a truly extraordinary man and he will be very sorely missed.

You are in my thoughts and prayers in this very sad time.

Terry was truly a special man. He was a loving father, wonderful husband, and one (of the few) who chose to dedicate his career to the patriotic convictions that he believed in- which all other Americans benefited from. Throughout his life, he adhered to the "southern gentleman" values instilled in him by his father Henry, and his mother Margaret.

As his brother-in-law, I witnessed how Terry and Jennifer began their life together in a Fairy Tale fashion (met on St. Paddy's day, engaged after 2 months, and culminated in a beautiful dream wedding at the chapel in the USNA at Annapolis)!

That book smoothly transitioned into a true (life long) love story. Jennifer and Terry brought out the best in each other and depended on one and others love, strength and convictions to develop an incredible family, with two amazing boys. They all appreciated that they were very fortunate to be able to have enjoy many, many wonderful experiences as a family.

Through their love friends, families, co-workers and neighbors have also been able to live better and happier lives.

Terry was a very special man, who's life positively influenced so many people and his country, we cannot underestimate our appreciation.

Thank you Terry, we are all very proud of you. You will be dearly missed, but please rest in peace, assured your family will be looked after, and knowing your most important mission, raising two young boys who have become quality men, has been successfully accomplished.

He will hear the vents no longer, he will go to sea no more.
For his final set of orders, has cast his soul ashore.
