Robert C. "Bob" Sattler

Robert C. Sattler, age 92 of Cleveland, OH died on Monday, May 6, 2024 at the Jennings Home for Adults in Garfield Heights, OH.  Bob was the son of the late Carl and Dorothy Sattler.  He was predeceased by his sister, Carol Watkins, of Phoenix, AZ.  He is survived by his sister, Marcia Waldorf, who resides in Idyllwild, CA.

Bob graduated from Mount Vernon High School in 1949.  He was then hired by the Cleveland (Cuyahoga County) Library and worked in the publicity department for a year.  Next he joined The Cleveland Press circulation department for two years, before finding his primary career in the customer service department of Nickle Plate (Norfolk Southern) Railroad from 1952-1985.  From 1969-1982, Bob joined the Cleveland Police Department as an Auxiliary officer and served as Commander of the "Buckeye Unit", which, in his proud opinion, was the "best run unit in the city". 

Bob had a passion for riding motorcycles, and was a charger member of the Western Reserve BMW Motorcycle Club.  He rode across the United States and Canada.

An avid audiophile, Bob's other lifelong joy was music, and from time to time over the years, he rode his motorcycle to other cities including Chicago to hear symphonic and opera performances.  In his later years, his favorite radio station was WKHR, 91.5 FM.

He joined Plymouth Church of Shaker Heights in 1975 and in 1979, the "Vivaldii Gloria" compositions drew him into the choir.  Later in life he composed church music and went to Cleveland State University to learn how to "flow" the composition.

Bob was the ultimate cat lover, and during his long life he supported numerous animal rescues and animal non-profits.  His cats were among his most beloved companions.

A Memorial Service will be held at Plymouth Church UCC of Shaker Heights at a date and time to be determined in the fall of '24.  Bob will be laid to rest at Mound View Cemetery in Mount Vernon, OH
