Robert Thomas Satchell was born to the late Sam Satchell and Mrs. Pleusa Satchell on September 2, 1924 in Cleveland, Ohio. He was the fifth child of seven children (two sisters and four brothers).

Mr. Satchell received Christ in his life in his early 20’s at a revival and attended Christ Temple Bible Way Church in Cleveland, OH. In 1952 Mr. Satchell went to a church convention held in Washington D.C. where he met Ms. Dorothy P. Dixon and were married a year later on June 13, 1953. Mrs. Dorothy Satchell moved to Cleveland, Ohio which was Robert’s hometown and they were blessed to raise one daughter and four sons. The family then moved to the country in Mesopotamia, Ohio and attended Evans Temple in Warren, Ohio for a number of years. Later in the late 60’s Mr. Robert Satchell was ordained as a Deacon doing whatever work his hands would find to do. Once the children were grown and moved away from home Mr. Robert and Mrs. Dorothy Satchell helped establish a local church and worked faithfully in the ministry. Deacon and Missionary Satchell along with the children relocated to Denver, Colorado in 1985 after he retired from Western Electric for 30 years. Deacon and Missionary Satchell joined Zion Temple Church in 1986 under the late Pastor, Suffragan Bishop Roland B. Martin. Deacon Satchell was a faithful worker in the church where he was appointed to the church board, he served in the outreach ministry, with the pantry serving food bags to the needy, kitchen staff, and janitorial work to name a few. He supported his wife Missionary Dorothy Satchell when she opened up her own home daycare called, “Dottie’s Daycare” from 1992-2010 and was known to many as, “Buddy”. His hobbies included: fishing, bowling, electrical work and he was a handyman. Deacon Satchell received a Certificate of Appreciation from Zion Temple’s youth for his encouragement, wisdom and years of service in 1998. Furthermore, he was recognized by Zion Temple’s Senior Ministry for Faithful Service in 2003 and he was recognized for 26 years of Exemplary Service as a Deacon at Zion Temple Church in 2013 and for Dedicated Service in 2016. Lastly, Deacon Satchell was a part of The Lord’s Daily Bread serving the homeless and less fortunate every Saturday along with Bro. Russell Bryant at the Rescue Mission and The Crossing until he wasn’t physically able to in August 2017. Mr. Bryant recognized Deacon Satchell with a certificate in Recognition of Valuable Contribution in May 2017 for his mentorship and spiritual leadership.

Oh, to catch the winds of flight and soar where eagles go;
To leave the woes of troubled souls behind me far below.
I’d listen to the song of birds and sail in endless flight,
Then chase the sun through cloudy paths
And play with stars at night.
The boundless heavens for my home,
the breeze to lift me high
To rise above my mortal bonds, and never truly die.
Knowing I had found the way to trails where angels trod,
And when my wings could fly no more
I’d take the hand of God.
Author, C. David Hay (Modified)

While traveling the pale blue sky.
A float on silvery wings.
A tear of glee came to my eyes
From the sight of lovely things.
Knowing somewhere in the distance land,
There is a man struggling to be free.
Is my call to arms across the stormy sea.
For freedom is one thing that should be all over the universe.
And I will prepare my self and help my fellow man
Through the very worse.
Not forgetting the man, who died to set me free,
Still watch form heaven above.
This is enough to make me struggle
Until this land is filled with only love.
So I will trust in my God, my country
And also my fellow man.
