Lancelot Barrie RHODES


Barrie would like you to know that today, Tuesday September 21, 2021, aged 86 years, he handed in his lunch tin. Deeply loved father, rockstar, and creator of magic for Sas, Tracey and Brent. G.D. to his grandchildren Janya, Kylee and Zee, and great-grandchildren, and a beloved and loving ex-husband and always friend to Krissy. A fun brother-in-law to Penny Cameron, Sara Cameron, Rob Clark, the late Jeff Cameron, and a special friend to Chris Rey. Erudite, an extraordinary teacher of children with special needs, a talented musician, and lover of music. A clever golfer, a master of the cryptic crossword, and a teller of truly awful jokes, he will be so sadly missed by all his family and wonderful friends. In accordance with Barrie’s wishes, a private cremation has been held, but a bit of a ‘do’ to celebrate his life and retell his jokes will be held when Sas is able to get home from France. Any messages can be sent to the Rhodes family, c/- Russley Retirement Village, 73 Roydvale Avenue, Burnside, Christchurch 8053.
