Bob Satter — longtime Westporter, World War II veteran, noted photographer and recent “Unsung Hero” on “06880” — died this morning. He was 94, and had been diagnosed with cancer.

Bob Satter was my best friend. Witty, caring, and all around good guy, he was the consummate mensch. And at 94 he was more vibrant and tuned-in than folks half his age.
He was a feminist long before it became fashionable, expressing more concern for the health of Justice Ruth Ginsberg than his own.
Sitting at his table in Gold’s on any Monday or Friday were cherished moments for me, and I wish there could have been more. He touched the lives of anyone who met him. Our town has lost the sweetest guy I’ve ever known.
