In Memoriam - Bob Mackey, USNA '70

Bob Mackey leaves a strong legacy as Blue & Gold Officer Area Coordinator for Fort Worth. Please see the article for more information on services for this great leader.

Good morning,


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 knoew 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 Parker.
