In The Remains of the Day, Mr. Stevens, theaged butler, only remembers his father, also a butler, once when he came to Darlington Hall and served for a short period of time. For not being allowed to wait a table (the most honourable duty of the profession) due to his extreme old age and sudden collapses, Mr. Steven’s father perished a disappointed man.
