Memorial Service: 11:00 a.m. Friday, February 2, 2018 at Lake Shore Funeral Home

Reception: will follow the service in the adjacent reception center.

Louis was born October 20, 1937, in Louden, Tennessee, to Louis and Katherine Satterfield. After moving from Tennessee to Arkansas, the family landed in Dallas, Texas where Louis graduated from high school. He earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Baylor in 1959 and a Juris Doctor degree from Baylor’s School of Law in 1960. As a law student, he was legislation editor of the Baylor Law Review.

Louis met the love of his life, Peggy Clare, while in law school, and they married on September 8, 1962 in Liberty, Texas. Rumor has it, he had to chase her around the law library in order to ask her for a date. They lived in Houston, Texas until 1969, when they moved to Liberty.

Louis retired from the practice of law on November 1, 1995. Prior to that time, he maintained his office in Liberty. He also previously held positions with Chamberlain, Hrdlicka, White, Williams & Martin, P.C. (where he was Of Counsel); Kirk & Carrigan, P.C.; Woods, Harman & Satterfield; The Superior Oil Company (where he was Vice President, Secretary, and Corporate Counsel); and Shell Oil Company.

He was a member of the Texas and Liberty County Bar Associations and had been admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States as well as various federal district and appellate courts. He was also a member of the National Rifle Association (Benefactor), Texas State Rifle Association (Life), Houston Zoological Society, the Liberty Rotary Club (Past-President 1985-86), the Baylor Law Alumni Association, and the Baylor Board of Regents (1990-1999).

For nearly fifty years, he was active in the First Baptist Church of Liberty, Texas, where he taught Sunday School classes, participated in several foreign mission trips, wrote and taught various special Bible studies, and served as a deacon.

After moving to China Spring in 2006, Louis was active in Columbus Avenue Baptist Church where he taught Sunday school classes and special Bible studies, and served as a deacon and then later attended and was active at Highland Baptist Church.

In his spare time, he enjoyed hunting and photography.

A strong, loving husband, father, and grandfather, Louis was our rock and will be missed deeply. We rejoice that he is now home with the Lord and reunited with Peggy Clare. No more sorrow. No more pain.

Louis was preceded in death by his wife, Peggy Clare; his brother, John; and his parents.

Survivors include his daughter, Clare Paul, and her husband, Robert; his grandchildren, Joseph Paul and Elisabeth Paul; nieces and several cousins.

The family wishes to express its deepest appreciation to Right at Home along with Linda Mansolo, Moe Burns, and Shamyra Coe in caring for Louis and for making his last days as comfortable as possible.

Memorial donations can be made to the Peggy Clare and Louis O. Satterfield, Jr. Scholarship Fund at the Baylor Law School, Baylor University, Waco, Texas or to the Alzheimer’s Association.
