Charles Lowell Satterwhite, 78, died Wednesday, Aug. 14, 2002.
Services will be at 2 p.m. today in the family plot in Higgins. Arrangements are by Minton-Chatwell Funeral home in Panhandle.
Mr. Satterwhite was born in Ellis County, Okla. to Alvis L. and Ethel McQuigg Satterwhite on July 10, 1924. He spent his career with Cities Service/Williams Oil Co., until he retired in 1985.
His wife of 59 years, Eva Bouton Satterwhite, and their three sons and their families mourn his passing.
Beyond his devotion to his family, he had a passion for making engines function, from his work to the airplane he piloted, to rebuilding cars, as well as enjoying motorcycles and motorboats.
Family outings to the lake for water skiing filled weekends and vacations as he and his sons mastered both regular and trick skis.
As the sons left the scene for higher education, he and his wife spent many happy days fishing together based in their firth-wheel "home away from home."
In retirement, he did woodworking projects, specializing in creating aspen pole beds for family members.
He served 26 months in the Philippines in World War II with an Army tank division, bringing home the memento of malaria.
Appreciation is extended to the skills and kindness of Drs. Nawaz and Tekeste, and the Hospice team of Marsha Carter and Dr. Drew.
Survivors include his wife; three sons, Larry Satterwhite and wife, Sandy, of College Station, Matt Satterwhite of Canyon, and Kent Satterwhite and wife, Lynne, of Fritch; a sister Helen Joe Satterwhite of Albuquerque, and her sons Kurt and Scott; 10 grandchildren, Kimberly Page and husband, Neal, Kristy Williams and husband, Clayton, Kamron Satterwhite and wife, Keyonna, Seth Satterwhite and wife, Rachel, Carrell and husband, Joey, Andy Satterwhite, Nicole Satterwhite, Ben Satterwhite, Drew Satterwhite, and Clair Satterwhite; five great-grandchildren, Charles Alvis Satterwhite, Jade Satterwhite, Jonas Satterwhite, Ella Satterwhite, and Lyra Satterwhite; numerous cousins and many members of the Bouton family.
The family suggests memorials be made to a favorite church.
