Terrance P. McBride, beloved father, brother, grandfather, and friend, passed away on October 18, 2023. He was born on December 18, 1947, in Cleveland, Ohio, to the late Florence McBride and John McBride.
Terrance's love for his family knew no bounds. He was a dedicated father who worked tirelessly to provide for his children: Michael McBride, Kristal Maurer, Aaron Kramp (Crystal), Amber Hendzel (Chris), Karlen McBride, Kimberly Bennett (Robert), and Matthew McBride. His devotion as a father extended beyond providing material comforts; he imparted valuable life lessons and provided support to help each of his children become their best selves.
He also leaves behind his beloved grandchildren, Nikki, Jeremy, Gina, Kayla, Bobby, Colin, Aurora, Aiden, Cameron, Skye, and Olivia who will always cherish their memories with him. Furthermore, his brother, Michael Clayton and nephew, Brian were a part of his tight-knit family and will dearly miss his presence.
In addition to his parents Terrance was predeceased by his brother, Richard McBride.
Terry had a remarkable journey through life that touched the hearts of all who knew him. A man dedicated to his family and country, he served in the Air Force during his younger years.
One of his favorite hobbies was fishing. There was no place he felt more at peace than casting a line into the water and waiting for the thrill of a tug on the line. Fishing was not just a pastime for Terrance; it was a passion that allowed him to connect with nature and find serenity amidst the chaos of life.
Amidst Terry's recent years, an unlikely companion emerged - Tweety. This steadfast feathered comrade will undoubtedly sense Terry's absence keenly. Tweety infused his days with a delightful playfulness, demonstrating that even the toughest of men have a soft spot for a chirping pal. The vivid plumage and merry melodies of Tweety brought a vibrant hue to Terry's world
Terrance P. McBride will be deeply missed by his loving family. As we mourn the loss of a remarkable individual, let us also celebrate the joyous moments we shared with Terry and honor the incredible life he lived.
Family and friends are welcome on Monday, October 23, 2023, at 6:00 P.M. at Abrams Creek Baptist Church, 18664 Sheldon Rd., Cleveland, Ohio, 44142.
