Richard A. Satterwhite passed away Tuesday, March 31, 2009, after a brief but heroic battle with cancer.

Memorial service: 2 p.m. Friday at First Baptist Church in Crockett.

Richard was born July 12, 1946, in Crockett to A.C. "Pud" Satterwhite and Jane Jones Satterwhite. He was a loving and devoted husband, a patient and compassionate father, and an unequaled friend of many who was loved by all who met him. He enjoyed spending time with his immediate and extended family.

Richard was a tireless volunteer for many organizations, including the Arlington Girls Softball Association, where he served on the board of trustees for many years. He loved coaching, playing and umpiring softball. He also served as a board member of The Today Church, where he often spoke. Whatever organization in which he found himself serving, he quickly assumed a leadership role. However, the role he loved most was the leader of his family.
