Joe McBride, DTM – In Memoriam


Dear District 13 Toastmasters,It is with profound sadness that I share the news that our Distinguished Toastmaster and Area 3 Director, Joe McBride, died on Thursday, February 23, 2017 with his devoted and loving wife Kathy McBride by his side. Kathy said, “We ate dinner and enjoyed the evening, and he went to bed and slipped away.”

Joe had been a Toastmaster for 34 years in clubs located in Washington State, Idaho, Arkansas, Texas, and District 13.

With sincere sympathy,

Dr. Hollis
