I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Hartling. Mr. Hartling was my 4th grade teacher at Huntley and together we started the girl's basketball team,The Roadrunners, at Huntley. He was our coach. I really enjoyed having Mr. Hartling, he was a great teacher and coach! I last saw Mr. Hartling at a Teacher Inservice when I taught in Appleton..my last year at Huntley. However, at that time Mr. Hartling was at Janet Berry. It was in 2004-05. I regret not being able to actually work with him. I will always remember Mr. Hartling! I will never forget all the great memories!

Familia Hartling mi mas sentido pésame. En sus visitas a Rosario los que conocimos a Bill tenemos el recuerdo de una persona alegre, amable y divertida. Pasamos pocos momentos juntos, pero fueron suficientes como para no olvidarlo.

"Grandpa" Bill was an extraordinary man. We treasure the moments we spent together. We feel blessed we got to know him better during his trips to Argentina. We loved his anecdotes… we could never get enough! Every now and then he would also share his own reflections on life, and we could then peep into his tender soul. We will miss him so much! Yet we firmly believe we will see him again and will run around the celestial gardens with him… and then we will fully know we were never apart. Bill is part of us and will always be. We could not be more grateful! Then I heard a voice from heaven say, "Write: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on." "Yes," says the Spirit, "they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them." Revelation 14:13 P.S: Grandma, Dad, Uncle and rest of the family: Mom and I are there with you! We love you!- Mateo
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Our family extends our deepest sympathies to your family as you grieve. Mr. Hartling taught both of my daughters at Janet Berry for 2 years each. He was definitely one of their favorite teachers! He had a tremendous talent for challenging children and making each child feel special and encouraging them to excel. Both of my girl's loved his stories the most and would share them at home. You are all in our prayers! Jodi Isom Mom to Amanda & Kaylee Isom

Mr. Hartling had a huge impact on all our lives. He was an excellent Janet Berry teacher who made his students feel there was nothing they couldn't accomplish. Joanna has always tried to live up to his belief in her. The world is a much sadder place for his passing. Our deepest sympathy to the Hartling family.

What can I say, Mr. Hartling was my favorite teacher! He was so innovative! I loved getting to work at my own pace in math, changing seats every Friday and, of course, being class governor for a term! I am so sorry to learn of his passing. My heart goes out to you all.
