I just happened to come across this obituary and I was sad to hear of Jim's passing. I was stationed at Castle AFB and worked in vehicle maintenance from March 1986-October 1991 and worked daily with your dad. He was a very positive role model and mentor for me a a young Staff Sergeant. I have many fond memories of the guys that I worked with there and your dad being our boss. I can tell you that he was a mentor to many troops that worked in vehicle maintenance and the transportation squadron, to include many of the officers and the squadron commanders. I still stay in touch with 2 of my coworkers that worked for your dad at that time and we always have great stories about him.
Again, I would like you give my condolences for your family, and just wanted you to know your father was a great man, and it was an honor to have known him and worked for such a great man.

My deepest sympathy to the family of James McBride, may you find comfort in knowing our Heavenly Father holds out the hope of the resurrection for our dead loved ones. Jesus said " all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out " ( John 5:28,29 ) also Revelation 21:3,4 says that one day on this earth death will be no more. May these words bring you some measure of comfort for the loss of your loved one.
