John (Eddy)Satterfield was my champion & hero all my life. I was his “little” sister by six (6) years. We had many adventures together & shared a love of 60’-70’s music & concerts, even saw The Beach Boys together at The old Las Vegas High auditorium. We spent time together fishing by small motor boat on Lake Mead & in the High Uintahs .He put the worms on my hook. Never a cruel word passed between us. We loved each other all my life. He was always there for me. I will & do miss him so. John even gifted me the burial plot next to him & Dottie, his beloved wife.we will surely see each other on the other side ❣️
