To summarize the life of a person like Joseph McBride in this small space is simply impossible. Dad wore many different hats in his life and touched so many lives, we would never be able to list them all here. In the place of such an attempt, I’ll leave a few links and articles for the meantime. In the future, I’ll upload more bits and pieces of his life and work.
You can read the obituary here. There are over 100 comments and notes posted by friends and many others here. You can find an article I wrote about all the kindness and support our family received from the community here.
Please read a touching tribute by a friend and co-rider here (also some wonderful comments from other riders). You can also read about the first ride in his honor on the same blog. You can find one more tribute from a riding buddy here. An article that mentions Dad in reference to the Ride of Silence (2011) can be found here.
