happily shared homemade biscuits and gravy for 67 years. Arnold loved
watching the Texas Rangers in the spring, the Dallas Cowboys in the
fall, and a good western on all the days in-between. He was a proud
mechanic, an honest business-owner, a professional Skip-Bo player,
and a man of impeccable devotion to his wife, daughters, and family.

Max McKinney, Buddy McKinney, Lawrence McKinney, Violet Bunch, Lila
Henry, Lana Shannon, and Reba Wilson.

daughters, Pam Dvoracek of Hutto, TX and Brenda Huffman and her
husband, Randy, of Chalk Bluff, TX and three siblings, Carol Henry
and her husband, Tom, Betty McKinney, and Judy Miller and her
husband, Junior, all of Wartburg, TN.
“Pappy” is also
survived by his grandchildren, Amy Podsednik and her husband, Jason,
