Bruce W. McBride

Bruce W. McBride age 67, of Lake Havasu City  passed away surrounded by family after a short bout with cancer on September 4, 2022. 

Bruce was born to John and Olga "Dal" McBride January 5, 1955. He joined his two older sisters Susan and Sally and later another sister Shirley. He attended school in Rupert, Idaho where he graduated and made many lifelong friends.

After Graduation, dad became an electrician, and started his own company, joined the IBEW, and worked 20 years for the Federal Bureau of Reclamation. He worked at Minidoka Dam, Parker, and retired while working at Davis.

Dad was an accomplished carpenter and loved woodworking. After retirement you could find him in his garage building things for friends or family and remodeling his home. If he wasn't doing that he would be taking rides on his Harley. I am sure you could hear ACDC or Jimmy Buffet blasting out of his speakers with the biggest smile on his face.

He was a wonderful father, always making sure we knew how much he loved us, and how proud he was of all our accomplishments.

He is survived by his two children Cortney (Dusty) Allison, and Cooper McBride, His sisters Shirley Freiburger (Gary Gibson), and Susan Kowitz: three grandchildren, Brynlee, Leighton, and Grayson Allison, and Charlene Coleman his significant other. He is preceded in death by his parents and his sister Sally Ward.

Dad was greatly loved and will be missed by all who knew him.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to St. Edwards Catholic School at 139 6th Ave E., Twin Falls, ID 83301

A Memorial Service will be held Oct 8, 2022 from 2:00-3:30 at Bradbury Memorial Center in Lake Havasu City, Az as well as at the Rupert Elks Lodge October 15, from 4:00-6:00.
