A son of the late Clifton and Mona (Cope) McBride, James was born November 7, 1929 in Lincoln County Tennessee.

Manufacturing where he worked for 33 years. Following his retirement, he worked as a custodian for another 20 years at various places in the Cleveland area.

He was a member of the New Philadelphia Elks. Most of all, James was a true family man and he cherished spending time with his family.

He is survived by his children, James (Janet) McBride Jr of Apopka, Florida, Michael McBride of Dover, Larry (Jan) McBride of New Philadelphia and Mark McBride of Jacksonville, Florida; his grandchildren, Mark Fields, Matthew and Andrew Osteen, Aaron (Holli) McBride and Joshanna McKahan, Brooke McKahan; a granddaughter-in-law, Shonda McBride; his great grandchildren, Krissy, Brian, Brandon, London, Killian, Jake, Teaghan, Eamon, Tristan (Alexis), Gabriella (Aaron), Chandler (K-Lee), Miles, Madisyn, Morrison, Darian, Raynah and Emma; his great-great grandchildren, Dartanian Jr, Mari, Layla, Zaythrian and Evander and a brother, Ken (Catherine) McBride of Westlake, Ohio.

James was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Gloria (Lane) McBride whom he married on February 10, 1951; his grandson, Dustin McBride; his siblings, Karl, Mary Lois and Junior and his companion, Janet Lane.

A graveside service celebrating James’ life will be held on Saturday, November 6, 2021 at 10:30 a.m. in Ridgecrest Memory Gardens at Dover.

Contributions may be made in James’ memory to a charity of one’s choice, however, he was an avid supporter of Boys Town Village and Disabled Veterans.

Grateful to be able to see Uncle Jim this year. It was always fun as a kid to visit Aunt Gloria and Uncle Jim's house - full of laughter, fun, and food. He always had a joke to tell that brought laughter to everyone. All of his family is in our thoughts and prayers - God Bless

Larry, Jan, and family: So sorry to hear of your dad's passing. He was a great guy. I think I worked with most of your family at Buehlers except your dad and Mark, but got to know them from coming into the store. Please accept our prayers and sympathy, and God Bless your family.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. Jim was such a kind and caring person. He was always so welcoming on our visits to Ohio. It meant so much to me knowing that Jim was such a great companion to my sister Janet. For that I will be forever grateful. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Larry, Jan and the McBride family. So very sorry for the loss of Jim. What a kind and generous man he was and it was real privilege to know him and to be able to refer to him as “dad”. He will be sorely missed. Praying for strength for the family to get through this difficult time.
