William Thomas ‘Bill’ Satterfield

SUNSET BEACH — William Thomas “Bill” Satterfield, 86, born Nov. 22, 1934, went to be with his Lord and Savior Tuesday, Jan. 26, 2021. Bill was born in Wilmington, Delaware, to Margaret and James Satterfield (deceased).

Bill was married to his sweetheart, Gerry, for 65 years. They have been residents of Sunset Beach for 20 years. They are members of Calabash Presbyterian Church, where Bill was an usher.

Bill is survived by two adoring daughters, Tracy Wittman, and her husband, Kevin, and Gay Myrick. He was a proud grandfather to Jason and Matthew Wittman, Samantha Deason and Mariah Myrick. Bill was blessed with three great-grandchildren, Sean and Allyana Wittman and Caiden Block.

Preceded in death by his brother Robert “Bob,” he is survived by brothers, James “Jim” Satterfield and John “Mickey,” and his wife, June Satterfield; sister, Margaret “Pat” Douglas, and her husband, Dave; sister-in-law, Theresa “Terry” Satterfield, Bob’s wife; and many nieces and nephews.

Bill loved golf, both watching and playing. In his younger years, he was a magician and loved to entertain the young and old. Up until his last days, he had a delightful sense of humor, and he always loved a good joke. His presence on this earth will be deeply missed.

The family wishes to extend our thanks to the staff of Lower Cape Fear LifeCare Hospice for the exceptional and compassionate care given before Bill was welcomed into heaven by Jesus. Special thanks to the certified nurse aides, Sarah, Ariel and Crystal, who loved and cared for Bill; as well as social worker Jennifer Stiffler’s support for the family. We cannot express in words our thanks for the love, special care and compassion extended by Nurse Kim Taylor from Lower Cape Fear Hospice Care.
