Ken Satterlee was born January 21, 1945 and grew up in south Florida. In 1962, Ken joined the US Army and was assigned as a medic to the 101st Airborne division. In May of 1973 Ken became a father to his daughter Kelley and in September of 1975, his youngest child, Ken Jr., was born. Ken also became a pilot in 1975. Through the eighties, Ken was an engine builder and company pilot for a NASCAR Winston Cup team, incorporating the two hobbies he loved. In the late eighties, Ken and his then wife Nina, took a second mortgage on their home, and built what we all knew as Dixie Precision — once again, turning what he loved to do, into a way of living. Building high performance race engines, Ken worked on everything from local stock ears and Harley Davidson’s, to road racers and vintage Ferrari restorations. The legacy of his talents will be sorely missed and always honored by all of those in his personal and professional life. Ken is survived by his mother Gladys Read, brother Peter Satterlee, sister Joy Satterlee, daughter Kelley Satterlee, son Ken Satterlee Jr. and grandchildren Amberlyn and Kaleb Satterlee.
