Robert Allen Satterwhite was born January 12, 1948, to Hazel Dell Condren Satterwhite and Troy Satterwhite in Weatherford, Texas. He attended the Weatherford Public Schools, graduating in 1966. Before joining the Navy, he worked at Southern Airways at Fort Wolters in Mineral Wells, Texas.

After retiring from the Navy, he moved to Necessity, Texas, to the family ranch. He also worked as a Bus Driver for the Breckenridge Independent School District, a mechanic at Wal-Mart in Breckenridge, and a maintenance technician at Stephens Memorial Hospital in Breckenridge.

He was a Master Gardener and taught classes in gardening. Due to his love for gardening, he started his own landscaping company. He enjoyed various hobbies, but one of his favorites was taking his grandchildren on tractor rides when they visited.

He was a member of the Necessity Baptist Church and served as a Deacon. He made sure that his nephew, Joseph, got to school on a daily basis until he was in ninth grade when he started riding the bus.

Robert’s parents and his oldest daughter, Wendi, preceded him in death.
