One Man’s Odyssey
Memoir of a Marine Engineer and Raconteur
by Kenneth L. Farquharson

Kenneth L. Farquharson, photo

Have you ever walked into a room and noticed off to the side a gaggle of spellbound listeners surrounding an apparent and compelling storyteller? You observe that inching ever closer the group suddenly erupts into an outburst of raucous laughter and you are left feeling that regretfully you have missed something.

Indeed you have missed something if you never experienced the eloquent, compelling and frequently hilarious stories of some of the life experience of my father, Kenneth Lionel Farquharson, P. Eng., , Commander, RCN (retired), a true officer and gentlemen.

Part memoir, part history of a generation the likes of which the world will never again witness. This is my father’s story, one man’s odyssey. Written amidst the pain of loss of his beloved wife and son and failing health, his memorable stories reflect his strength, intelligence, spirit, and humour that became his enduring legacy.
