Paul Clifton Wojtal

Paul Clifton Wojtal, 79, of Sontag, passed away Nov. 18, 2023, at King’s Daughter’s Medical Center in Brookhaven. Paul was born Nov. 16, 1944, in Chicago, Ill., to Alfred John and Shirley Elaine Brown Wojtal.

A funeral service was held Nov. 21 at Shiloh Baptist Church in Sontag, with graveside following in the church cemetery. Bro. Jimmy Smith officiate, with Wilson Funeral Home in charge of the arrangements.

Paul’s passions were fishing, cars (especially his Corvette), and his family. He was a “Mr. Fix-it.” There wasn’t anything he could not fix, especially if it had a motor on it. Tinkering was one of his favorite pastimes. He was the kindest, gentlest, biggest hearted person you would ever meet. Paul never met a stranger and was always there to help.

He drove a fuel tanker for over 40 years. He was very dedicated to his employers, his family, and his lady, Barbara, his beloved wife.

Paul is survived by his wife, Barbara Gale Ellis Wojtal, of Sontag; daughter, Tracey Wojtal Zinnikas (John); sons, Jacob Allen Lange (Heather), Robert Ruewl Satterley (Tarra), Richard Louis Satterley (Nicole); grandchildren, Joshua Anthony Satterley, Briana Lynn Champagne, Rebecca Danielle Satterley, Jacelyn Marie Claflan, Taron Gregory Satterley, Justin Paul Satterley, Erica Ann Bradford, Seleste Frohling, Marco Gonzales, Julie Dockery, and Gloria Camacho; great-grandchildren, DeLaura Satterley, Anthony Satterley, Koryn Satterley, Maleah Satterley, Colton Satterley, Aden Strength, Ava Strength, Isiah Dufrene, Isabella Satterley, Magnolia Camacho, Archer Camacho, and Ares Dochery; and sisters, Betty Rock and Sherry LoSasso.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Alfred John Wojtal and Shirley Elaine Brown Wojtal; his stepfather, Jacob Bissing; a daughter, Babette Satterley; and a son, Gregory Ray Satterley.

The Wojtal family would like to thank St. Luke’s, Diversicare, and Arden Hospice Care for their love and care. They would also like to recognize Abbey Mahaffey for her special care and love during this difficult time.
