William Walker Fairbairne King was my step-father. He grew up in Scotland and during WWII served in the British Merchant Marines. Torpedoed by the Germans in the Northern Atlantic and shipwrecked for twenty-one days, he was rescued by the U.S. Navy. He went to the U.S., joined the U.S. Army and fought in the Pacific. He returned to the states, met my Mother with four children, married her and became the best Father a man could ask for. Nothing greater exists in my heart....
