In Memoriam: Kenneth McFarlan, Esq.

Today I learned of the recent passing of one of my early mentors, a humanitarian, philosopher, and attorney named Kenneth McFarlan. Ken was admitted to the California State Bar in 1973. By the time I met Ken in 1997 he was living on his sailboat on the Sausalito side of the San Francisco Bay, still practicing law in a nearby office, and generously sharing his rich life experience with an idealistic young college graduate preparing for law school (me). I recall Ken carried himself with honor, integrity and humility. Over the years, I think back on his encouragement to live an “integrated life” with family, profession, friendship, and everything else important in life intertwining naturally. Ken’s thoughtful words stay with me and I am grateful to have known him.
