William F. Mcbride

April 13, 1949 — February 11, 2021

(Rochester, NY) Bill passed away February 11, 2021 unexpectedly. He was born in Batavia on April 13, 1949 to Robert K and Genevieve McBride (predeceased). He is survived by his loving wife, Linda McBride of 52 years. He is also survived by his three children: Christine (Robert) Hill of Rochester, AF Master Sergeant William (Joelle) McBride of Montgomery, AL and Aubrey (Kasie) Way of Rochester. Bill has seven beautiful grandchildren: Alexis and Aiden Hill, Alex, Cooper and Jackson McBride and Liam and Everly Way.

Bill graduated from Batavia High School and attended GCC. He served in the United States Navy from 1968-1972. He settled down in Batavia and started his career in manufacturing at the family business, McBride Steel. He retired in 2014 from GM (Lockport). His work ethic was one to be admired and set a perfect example for his children.

Bill’s family was his greatest joy and best accomplishment. He paved the way for his children’s success and was incredibly proud of their many accomplishments. He was a devoted family man and active in his children and grandchildren’s lives. There wasn’t anything he would not do for his family. He coached hockey and was a travel hockey Dad. When he couldn’t be at a game, he was watching remotely. He was the greatest fan. Bill and Linda recently moved to Rochester to be closer to their daughters and grandchildren.

In his spare time, he enjoyed being on the water boating and sailing. He played bass guitar in a few classic rock bands and was the ultimate do it your selfer. His craftmanship was impeccable.
