Robert Hunter Satterwhite, 71, passed away July 23, 2022, at his home surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Vance County to Gladys Hite Coker and the late Robert Galston Satterwhite. Robert was a mechanic by trade for over 20 years.

Robert was a jack of all trades; countless family and friends relied on his handyman skills. Known for his colorful jokes and a contagious laugh, Robert loved to make everyone around him smile along with him. One of Robert’s favorite places was on a pier with a fishing pole in his hand.

Robert was a courageous warrior who battled various cardiac diseases for many years. He met each challenge full force and endured numerous surgeries and procedures with his wife always there to nurse him.
