Dr. Darrell Hirt Remembered


Dear TNA and PPG Family:

It is with great sadness that I report the death of our dear friend and colleague Dr. Darrell Hirt and his wife Cathy. They were involved in a fatal motor vehicle collision while visiting family in Budapest Hungary on Friday October 2nd, 2015. Funeral arrangements are in the preliminary stages of planning, we will update you as more information becomes available.

Dr. Hirt joined Tarrant Nephrology as the third partner in 1991, he completed his Nephrology training at UTSW and had been serving as faculty in the Nephrology Division at Vanderbilt University. Darrell has been a pillar of the community and this practice for 25 years, he was an excellent physician with an extremely loyal patient base. He will be remembered for his cheerful personality, intelligence, but most importantly his kind soul.

Dr. Hirt lived life to the fullest; he enjoyed traveling, art, and  the opera. However, all of this pales in comparison to the love he had for his beautiful family. At the time of his death he was with his wife Cathy traveling and experiencing life. He is survived by his 3 children Karl Joseph Hirt, Alex Hirt and Tina Hirt.
