Obituary.............................Robert "Bob" Mackey
Robert J. Mackey, 68, passed away peacefully at home following a courageous battle with cancer on Sunday, November 19th, 2017. Born in Pensacola, FL on November 25th, 1948 to William A. and Warren Jemison Mackey, he graduated from Arlington Heights High School in 1966 and the Naval Academy in 1970. After marrying Barbara Murdoch on June 6th, 1970, Bob embarked on a lifetime of service to others.
He served his country flying with the Navy for 9 years active duty, 18 years in the Naval Reserve and another 20 recruiting for the Naval Academy.
As a Delta Air Lines pilot Bob served countless travelers and retired as Chief Line Check Pilot on the 737 in 2004. From 1983 to 1987, Bob was elected to four terms with the Keller ISD school board, serving as Board President for several years.
Golf would wait as Bob began teaching Geometry and Calculus at Keller High School in 2006. He was selected as 2009 High School Teacher of the Year, and served as Math Department Chairman from 2010 until 2014.
In 2014, Bob’s fourth career began, serving others through his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, as a Church Building Chairman, Deacon and Elder with Lakeside Presbyterian Church PCA.
He is survived by his loving wife of 47 years, Barbara; and their two sons and families: Robert, Jr. (wife Kimberly), their children Jordan, Carter, and Peyton; Stephen (wife Mollie), and their son Parker; his brother William Mackey (wife Sue); and sister Sue Mackey Augustus (husband Jim).

It is with great sadness that I
inform you that our fellow alum Robert "Bob"
Mackey, a proud member of the Class of '70, passed away
on 19 November 2017.   
Bob was a member of the Class of
1970. He was a gymnast at USNA. Following graduation he
earned his wings and flew A-7s. After his time in the Navy
he flew for Delta for many years.   
Most of us in the Chapter knew Bob
from his service as the Blue and Gold Officer Area
Coordinator for Area 317 (Fort Worth). Bob was a BGO for 37
years. He recruited many of the BGOs serving still today,
and his leadership was instrumental in building the
incredibly strong candidate source that our Chapter area
represents to USNA.    
He was preceded in death by his
parents William and Sue Mackey. He is survived by his wife
of 47 years Barbara; sons Robert (Kimberly) Mackey and
Stephen (Mollie) Mackey; brother William Alexander Mackey;
sister Sue Mackey Augustus and grandchildren Christopher
Jordan, Carter Boyd, Peyton Gayle and William
