His favourite tree here in Royal Park

Rantz – aka Charles – died on Thursday 20 October 2022 after an intense battle with pancreatic cancer. Charles had the support of many people at home in Melbourne and around the world. He died, as he wished, at home surrounded by a few close and dear friends.

We are glad he is no longer in pain and distress.

He decreed there would be “no service of any kind”. He did, however, allow his ashes to be mixed with biodegradable glitter (of course!) scattered around his favourite tree here in Royal Park. A picture of his resting place is below.

He loved photography, debate, controversy, cycling, nature, gardening and more… and he applied his enthusiasm, commitment, intelligence and wit to all that. This website was part of what he loved to do. Thank you for visiting, contributing and connecting with Rantz/Charles.s

We miss him in so many ways – most of all his presence in this world.

    Charles dear,

    Your silence on earth is named now..

    Busy living expecting we all were,

    yet missing the ones for.

    Farewell Charles dear,
    thank you for all you gave,
    the green world,
    beautiful words, thoughts..

    Once G+ brought me many gorgeous persons around the world,
    many has left already, now you too..

    You have enriched my world with glitter & words.
    We white skinned persons, we do glow in the dark.
    Thank you..

    Your glitter will be seen.. <3
