Herman Ray Sattler

April 28, 1922 - August 29, 2020

Herman Ray Sattler, 98, of Spring, died Saturday, August 29, 2020. He was born on April 28, 1922, in Church Point, Louisiana, to Louise Guidry Sattler and Willie C. Sattler.

Herman was born in Southwest Louisiana and lived there on a small farm until moving to Texas for the first time in 1946. He was drafted into the United States Army one week after Pearl Harbor, landed at Normandy, and fought his way through France, Belgium, and most of Germany before the end of World War II. Herman tried farming again briefly after the war, but eventually decided to join one of his older brothers in Texas to start a new life. He worked as an air-conditioner installer and repairman with the old Southern Union Gas Company for thirty years before being forced to retire because of his bad knees. Herman liked to joke that he had been retired longer than he worked at the job, something that really is possible when you pass your ninety-eighth birthday.

Survivors include his sons, Sam Sattler and his wife, Cheryl, of Spring and Gary Sattler and his wife, Starlet, of Pflugerville; grandchildren, Sheila Sattler and her husband, Craig Heath; Carrie Farmer and her husband, Jason; Brandon Sattler; and Tarrah Sattler; and great-grandchildren, Lindsey Liuzzo; Zachary Farmer; Matthew Liuzzo; Alexis Sattler; and Aiden Sattler; and sisters Cora Comeaux and Lenora Bergeron.

He is preceded in death by his parents; wife, Jenora Miller; and siblings, Austin Sattler; Wilma Hundley; Shannon Sattler; Audrey Sattler; and Gurvy Sattler.

A gathering of Mr. Sattler’s family and friends will begin at 12:00 p.m., Friday, September 4, 2020, at Broussard’s, 505 North 12th Street, Nederland, with a Mass of Christian Burial to follow at 2:00 p.m., at St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church, 211 Hardy Avenue, Nederland. His interment will follow at Oak Bluff Memorial Park, Port Neches.

Herman Sattler was one of the best men his friends and family will ever know, always an example to his two sons and to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We will miss him.
