Jonathan Darbyshire

Jonathan was a skilled woodworker: a ship’s carpenter and a tradesman in household renovation with an artist’s eye. He loved to work with the exotic hardwoods on boats as much as he loved to sail them. He spent many an early hour cheering on his favorite European football team, Manchester United. We all miss his random gifts of kindness, soup, and generosity.

“I am the master of my fate:

I am the captain of my soul.”

(Invictus, William Ernest Henley 1849-1903)
