Mack Pirkey passed away at his home on Friday, February 21, 2020 surrounded by his wife, Elizabeth, daughter, Kristen, and his dog, Daisy.

Memorial Service: 2:00 p.m. Saturday, February 29, at First United Methodist Church, 313 N. Center St., Arlington. Reception to follow in the Great Hall.
Memorials: In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to, First United Methodist Church of Arlington, or the charity of your choice.

Mack was born on November 17, 1956 in Texarkana to Thomas and Edna Clell Pirkey. He attended Texas High School, the University of Texas at Austin, and Baylor College of Dentistry. He married his UT college sweetheart, Elizabeth in 1982. They had one daughter, Kristen, who was his pride and joy. He practiced dentistry in Arlington for over 34 years. To say he loved being a dentist is an understatement. He blessed thousands with his compassionate care and livelong friendship. He said the worst thing about having to retire was not being able to visit with his patients every day. Mack loved to vacation in Colorado every summer with his extended family. He was an avid Longhorn football fan. Hook’em.

Survivors: Mack is survived by his wife, Elizabeth; daughter, Kristen; father, Thomas Pirkey; sister, Mary Pirkey Davies and husband, Pete; sister-in-law, Suzanne Militzer and husband, Todd; and nieces, Rachel and Katherine Militzer.

I am so sorry to hear this news. Dr. Pirkey was my dentist for over 30 years. I always loved getting the opportunity to visit with him...even on emergency Sunday visits. Praying for comfort for his family. He was a special man.
