Passing of Dr. Billy Satterfield

office of the president

March 1, 2019

Dear UHCL faculty and staff:

I am saddened to share news of the death of Dr. Billy Satterfield, former executive director of financial aid/registrar for University of Houston-Clear Lake. Dr. Satterfield passed away early this morning in a tragic car accident. As many of you may know or remember, Dr. Satterfield joined UHCL in 2007 and worked with us through 2018. His talents helped shape and strengthen the services provided by the Financial Aid Office and the Registrar’s Office during the university’s transition to a 4-year university.

Dr. Satterfield is survived by his wife Caley. Once arrangements are known, details will be shared in an email.

Loss is difficult on many levels, and I offer my condolences to family, friends and all who knew and loved him. Remember, our Office of Counseling Services can provide any emotional support you may need. If you need to talk, please contact them by calling 281-283-2580.


Ira K. Blake, Ph.D.
