Richard T. Satkowski, 60, of Holland, MA, died on Saturday (November 22, 2008) at his home.
He leaves his wife of 33 years, Lucie (St. Laurent) Satkowski; a son Phillip Satkowski of Holland; two daughters, Laura and Krysta Satkowski of Holland; a sister Lynn Pariseau of Westfield; his father Ted Satkowski of Stafford Springs; aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.
He was born and raised in Stafford Springs, the son of the late Lorraine C. (Goryl) Satkowski. Rick graduated from Monson Academy in 1966, and earned his Master of Arts degree in History from the University of New Hampshire. He later earned his Masters in Divinity from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. A bold proclaimer of God's Word, Rick was a dedicated pastor for over 23 years; first at Christ Baptist Church in Worcester, and later at Emmanuel Baptist Church in West Springfield. He was also involved in Racing for Jesus Ministry, a pursuit which combined two of his greatest passions. In addition to pastoring, Rick worked in education, insurance, and most recently, social services.
The Funeral will be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, November 26 in the Holland Congregational Church, 11 Sturbridge Road, Holland, MA.
Burial will follow in the Holland Cemetery.
Calling hours will be held from 4-8 p.m. TODAY, November 25 in the Belanger-Bullard Funeral Home, 51 Marcy Street, Southbridge.
