Dean Patrick McBride, 59, passed away after his brave battle with cancer on Saturday, Dec 10th, 2022.
He is survived by his parents, Gary and Linda McBride; daughter, Morgan McBride; brothers: Gary McBride and Danny (Sandy) McBride; his longtime girlfriend Monica Brower; and nieces and nephews.
Dean was born in Carthage, NY but spent most of his life here in Virginia Beach, VA. He spent the last year of his life in Norton, Virginia, in the mountains where he loved. Dean enjoyed his work as a plumber. He loved going to the races, checking out the local flea markets or thrift stores, going to see live music, metal detecting, hiking, and camping. He would spend every year around Halloween at the campground with his beloved camper. One of his favorite finds at the thrift store was his tricycle, which he would take to the races and ride around with a cooler of beer in the back. All of his friends would describe him as always having a smile upon his face and as the life of the party. Dean’s loved ones would like to extend a special thanks to his best friends, Gary and Carol Zeno, for their hospitality during this difficult time.
A celebration of life will be held in Virginia Beach in May 2023 and in Upstate, NY in Aug 2023. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the American Cancer Society or donate blood in Dean’s honor.
Cremation Society of Virginia is assisting the family.
