HARTJES, Wilhelmus (Bill)

8th. April 1947 – 18th. July 2021

It is with deep regret that I am sending this message to notify Past Students of Marist College, Rosalie of the passing of our fellow student and friend Bill Hartjes.

Bill grew up in Oxley and attended Corinda Primary school before commencing his education at Marist College, Rosalie in the mid 1950’s. He graduated at Senior Level (Year 12) in 1965. During his work career Bill worked as an Accountant and always spoke with fond memories of his time at Rosalie. He remained lifelong friends with some of the Old Boys.

Bill had a number of years with health issues and suffered with Alzheimers. Bill will be sadly missed.
Bill was the much-Loved Husband to Felicitas, Dad to Angelique, Rachel, Jessica, Joshua & Jacob, Father-in-Law to Roberto, Jurgen & Neil, Poppy to Dominic, Constance, Evangeline, Lily, Nicolas, Oliver, Annabel, Joseph & Phoebe, Poppy in Law to Hazel, Jack, Nicholas & Lauryn, Great Grandfather to Jason & Angus and Uncle, Brother-in-Law, friend and colleague to so many.
Bill passed away peacefully after a wonderful life and final battle with Alzheimer’s.

Bill was a larger-than-life character who had a huge impact on so many. He will be sadly missed. The Family is hosting a Memorial & Celebration of Life at 1pm this Saturday 24th July at Heritage Park.

Please email rachel.jurgen@gmail.com for the details, all are welcome.
Messages of condolence can also be email to Rachel at the above email. The following message was received from Bill Wolfe, Classmate.

Bill was the class of 65.
He pulled me out of the ruck once when I got concussed playing at Wests Toowong’s field.
My heartfelt sympathy to the family
