August 22, 1974 – November 29, 2021
We are deeply saddened by the passing of Rinto Andriono, one of our talented writers, for the Your Stories column of our website. Rinto’s writing reflects his deep concerns for the environment as well as the human condition. We had just published his latest work, The Third Gender, when we received the very unsettling news of his death. Earlier this year, we featured Pongo’s Caring Tree, which expresses Andriono’s compassion for nature.
Rinto Andriono passed away at 8:30 a.m. on November 29th, 2021, in Dr. Sardjito Hospital, Yogyakarta from a heart attack.
He is survived by his wife, Dati Fatimah, a son and a daughter.
Farewell, dear friend. May you rest in peace.
