Rolf Lange was Schwabisch, born in southern Germany on 27th April 1939. He trained as a master in Patisserie in Germany and moved to Oxford, England as a young man to work, married and had two daughters, Karin and Juliette. He was an adventurer, raconteur, teller of rude jokes, iconoclast, humanist, student of European Studies, accordionist, yachtmaster and pilot, a lover and a warrior. Over forty-five years he divorced, remarried, taught English in Greece, qualified for university entrance through Open University European Studies, and made wine on the Rhine. He explored America and shot the rapids of the Rio Grande in New Mexico, sailed the Mediterranean and lived on his catamaran for ten years with his wife Carol. They sailed to Spain and bought a house in the Alpujarra mountains of Andalucia. He loved trees and planted pomegranate, almond, fig, palm, orange, grapefruit, lemon, quince, lime, avocado, apple, cherry, pear, nispero, chirimoya and olive. Rolf had a boundless zest for life. His passion was flying and he was in process of renewing his pilot's licence when he died suddenly in his beloved village of Darrical, Andalucia, on 1st March 2016. He always said that when his time came, he would just fly his plane into a mountain. He found his mountain that night. Rolf was deeply moved by the plight of homeless people.
