FARQUHAR, Alexander James
Alexander James FARQUHAR, native of Brooklyn, Hants County, son of the late Judge Hiram Smith FARQUHAR and Eva Mary DIMOCK, died at home in Halifax on Sunday, March 9, 2008, in his 82nd year. Married for 57 years, he leaves his beloved wife Glennis, brother Hugh (Claudette DERDAELE,) children Alec (Kathleen McDONNELL,) James (Liliane SAYEGH,) Sarah (Randy SUTHERLAND,) Megan (David GRAVES), Donald (Kathryn MYERS), Anaya (Donald CARRIER) and Katherine (Robert LALONDE,) thirteen grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, and many cousins, nieces, nephews, in-laws and Friends. After first pursuing postgraduate study in physical education at Springfield College, Massachusetts, Alex felt and responded to a call to the ministry, enrolling at Pine Hill Divinity Hall, Halifax, Nova Scotia. While serving on a student mission field in rural Saskatchewan, he met Glennis LAMB, of Wawota, Saskatchewan, and they were subsequently married in 1950. After ordination in the United Church of Canada in 1951, Alex was called to a succession of pastorates in Nova Scotia (Lockeport, Baddeck, Sydney River, and St. Matthew's, Halifax), Ontario (First-St. Andrew's, London) and Quebec (St. Andrew's-Dominion Douglas, Westmount), before bringing his ministry to a close at Zion United Church, Liverpool, Nova Scotia in 1991. As a pastor, Alex was deeply devoted to his parishioners, serving them faithfully and with a profound sense of privilege. The words of Psalm 16: 6 held for him a special significance: 'The lines have fallen unto me in pleasant places yea, I have a goodly heritage'. Known and respected widely for his insightful and scholarly sermons - some of which were included in such published collections as 'Outstanding Sermons from Canadian Pulpits' (Evergreen Press, 1966) - Alex was invited on many occasions to preach at churches across North America and to address various conferences, student convocations and other assemblies. He also represented the United Church in international events pertaining to the Reformed Wing of the World Church, including the 1961 Kirchentag in Berlin, the 1962 Japan Evangelism Project of the U.S. National Council of Churches, and the 1970 dedication of the National Presbyterian Church in Washington, D.C. As a member of the United Church Committee on Christian Faith, in 1968 Alex helped to craft the United Church Creed, and as a member of the Committee on Church Union in the 1970's, he participated in conversations then being held between the United Church and the Church of England. During the 1980's, Alex served as President of the Montreal InterFaith Task Force on the Liberation of Soviet Jewry and in recognition of his leadership in this cause, he was presented with an Award of Merit at the 1992 Plenary Assembly of the Canadian Jewish Congress. In 2005, Alex was named Pine Hill's distinguished alumnus of the year. Throughout his life, Alex was passionate about sports and during his early years, he was an outstanding varsity athlete who excelled at track, basketball and football. He was named captain of Dalhousie University's football team in 1945. His summers in youth were occupied with baseball, as he played with the Halifax Saint Mary's softball and baseball teams (provincial runner-ups) and later with teams in Pictou, Lockeport, Shelburne, Nova Scotia and Lampman, Saskatchewan. Alex coached the Lockeport High School girls' basketball team to two Nova Scotia championships in the early 1950's, and concluded his own athletic career in 1958 as a member of the Cape Breton All Stars Maritime Basketball Champions. A funeral service will be held in Edgewood-Oxford United Church, 3055 Connaught Ave., Halifax, on Saturday, March 15, 2008, 10 a.m., followed by a reception at the Atlantic Funeral Homes. A brief committal service will be held in Newport United Church, Brooklyn, Hants Co. the same afternoon at 3 p.m., prior to interment at the Riverview Haven cemetery. Any who are moved to honour Alex's memory with a gift are gratefully encouraged to consider a contribution in his name to the church or charity of their choice, or to Dalhousie University (the Hiram and Eva Farquhar Bursary for students in the School of Social Work, or the Doctor James W. Reid Lectureship in Medical Humanities). The family extends a heartfelt thanks to all who participated in Alex's care. On-line condolences may be made at: www.atlanticfuneralhomes.com
