Rick McBride, 57, of Clintonville, passed away Aug. 23, 2021, at home surrounded by his family and loving wife, Bev.
Rick was born June 19, 1964, in Grove City. He was the son of William McBride and the late Carol Coast McBride.
He graduated from Moniteau High School.
He married Beverly Cook on July 6, 1985, and she survives.
Together, Rick and Bev fostered 53 children. Their door was always open to help lend a hand in anyway they could. Rick also was front and center in his niece's and nephews' lives, especially Jake, Josh and Kaici. Rick never missed a sporting event or any event going on in the kids' lives. They looked to Rick as someone they could always turn to, and as "Dad No. 2."
Rick retired in July of 2019, from the Clarion County Jail after 25 years of service. Earlier in life, Rick was a familiar face at Ski's Market in Clintonville.
He was an avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan. You rarely saw him without his Steelers shirt or hat, and you always saw him in his yellow Chevy Colorado truck with the Steelers emblem on the back. Although he loved all of the Pittsburgh teams, the Steelers were his favorite.
One of Rick's greatest accomplishments before becoming ill was losing over 150 pounds through hard work and #determination. He was a constant face at the YMCA in Grove City, putting in hours of workouts. He had trained and ran in 5Ks in his journey in bettering his health.
Rick and Bev looked forward to hunting season every year. They would rifle hunt on the McBride Farm. (Bev will treasure those memories.)
Rick's love of the Lord was evident in his life. He was a member of Chapel on the Hill in Emlenton. He served as royal ranger commander for many years at the church.
Rick's contagious smile and love for life will be missed by so many.
Loved ones left to cherish his memory are his wife, Beverly of Clintonville; his father, William McBride and his wife, Margaret, of Harrisville; his son, Frank Suhoney and his wife, Lisa, and their three children, all of West Sunbury; his brothers and sisters, Faith Schleifer and her husband, Mike, of Franklin, Charity Welton of Ohio, William "Billy" McBride Jr. of Franklin, and Jason McBride and his wife, Kathy, of Harrisville; his mother-in-law, Barbara Cook of Hilliards; his brother-in-law, Don Cook and his wife, Ethel, of Hilliards, Mark Cook of West Virginia; and Bob Cook and his wife, Renee, of Grove City; and numerous aunts and uncles, and nieces and nephews.
Rick was welcomed into Heaven by his mother, Carol McBride, who passed away on Aug. 21, 2017; his father-in-law, Lee Cook; and numerous aunts and uncles, and other family members.
