“To love and be loved is glorified fulfilment.”

My cherished and devoted husband for 56 years. A true gentleman who lived for his family.
To the world you were but one. To me you were the world.
Thank you for an exceptional journey.


Our time with you, we’ll never forget,
The moments we shared, we’ll never regret.
A wonderful Father – so loving and kind,
What beautiful memories you left behind.
Sharing and caring, always content,
Loved and respected wherever you went.
We will miss and love you always,

Rosslyn and David

To our dearly loved Dad, father-in-law and Opa,
To us you were someone special, someone good and true,
You will never be forgotten, as we thought the world of you.
Your legacy will remain with us forever.
You are missed and will always be in our hearts.

The Heetel Juniors,
Roland, Annie, Patrick, Connor and Rebecca

Dear Opa,
Thank you for being such a wonderful grandfather, who was always interested in our lives, supported us in our endeavours and encouraged us to strive high.
No longer in our lives to share, but in our hearts you’ll always be there.
Unser liebster Großvater, der uns immer nah war und fuer immer ein Platz in unserem Herzen behaelt.
Love Brayden and Susan, Alexander, Harrison and Vanessa.

Anja Meier-Schirra shared

Dear Rolf,
Thank you for always loving, caring and respecting your German family, taking part on our lives and never forgetting any birthday. There was always a telephone call from Australia in the early morning from you, so far but although so close and nearby. Thank you.
Du hast zwei Welten mit einander verbunden, deine Erinnerungen an Deutschland nimmst du mit ins Grab. Ein großer Heetel ist von uns gegangen. Ruhe in Frieden. Wir werden dich vermissen.
Anja und Familie Meier
