Desease Brother

It is our sad duty to inform you about the passing away of Brother Kees van de Wiel on October 23, 2021.

The text of the mourning card reads as follows:

"     Congregation of the Brothers of the Immaculate Conception of Mary

' Land and people of beautiful Chile,

  I always carry deep in my heart with me.'


 With great sadness in our hearts we dwell on the passing away of our dear family member and faithful brother

 Brother Kees van de Wiel  FIC 

Cornelis Josephus Adrianus


He saw the light of life on September 23, 1938 in Waalwijk (Netherlands). He made his first profession in the Congregation FIC on August 15, 1959. He passed away in the MUMC+ in Maastricht on October 23, 2021.

"Still waters run deep" would be a good characteristic of the intensely good man we have to say farewell. Always at the background, quietly enjoying the conversations around him. But when you spoke to him about his long period in Chile, the sun would appear on his face and he could tell a hundred.

Kees was trained for technical skills. Soon after his profession he was allowed to go to Latin America, where he became a teacher at our technical school in Santiago. With great expertise, he trained young people for a beautiful profession, that provided them with a good future. He was closely involved in Chilean folklore and he led singing and dance groups of young people. He provided farmers and fishermen with new chances in life by teaching them new techniques.

We say goodbye to Kees on Thursday October 28 in the chapel of De Beyart during a celebration which starts at 14.30 pm. Then we lay him to rest at the cemetery of the Brothers FIC near the Anjoulaan in Maastricht.
