Obituary for Edward F McBride

Born in Brockton, MA on November 3, 1934 to the late Walter and Rose Alma (Lessard) McBride, he moved to Millis as a young teen to live with his aunt and uncle, the late William and Irene Flynn, where he attended Millis Public Schools. It was there that he met his wife, the late Marie (Sokoloski) McBride.

Edward served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1953 to 1956, and then went on to be employed as a Quality Inspector at Metal Bellows Corp, a company specializing in aerospace/medical devices and military defense industries, Sharon, MA, where he would spend his entire work career.

An enthusiastic outdoorsman, he enjoyed hiking, camping, and canoeing, remaining active until late in his life. He was also an avid lover of animals, both wild and domesticated, and greatly enjoyed time spent watching birds and squirrels in his wooded backyard. He owned many motorcycles and enjoyed riding and working on them.

He leaves behind his three sons: Edward, and wife Diane, Mark and wife Day, and Daniel, all of Millis, along with his five grandchildren. He also leaves behind his two brothers, James McBride of Raynham, MA and Richard McBride of Atlanta, Georgia.

Visiting hours will be Tuesday November 20th from 4-7 at the Roberts Mitchell Caruso Funeral Home, 90 Curve Street, Millis. Burial will be private.

To honor Edward and his love of the outdoors and animals, memorials may be made in his memory to either The Trustees of the Reservation, Boston, MA or MSPCA-Angell, Boston, MA.
