RYAN DONALD MCBRIDE
Ryan Donald McBride, 48, passed away unexpectedly after a brief illness on August 29, 2022, surrounded by loved ones. Even though Ryan was taken from us far too soon, he will forever live on in the hearts of all who loved him.
Ryan was born in Winnipeg, MB on May 20, 1974 to Don and Gloria McBride. He spent his life growing up in Winnipeg and went on to cultivate a successful career in logistics and sales.
He met his wife Rhonda in 2007, and married in August of 2015 in Kelowna, BC. Ryan's family grew with the addition of Rhonda's children, Tyler McNaughton and Terryn McNaughton whom he cherished and was so deeply proud of.
Ryan found his "happy place" 10 years ago with a cabin at Malachi Lake. He loved to host family and friends, spending as much time in his little piece of paradise as he could. Ryan also had a huge heart and soft spot for animals, and most know his social media posts were mainly of lost dogs and pets needing forever homes. That was how he found his beloved dog Sami, who he loved so much.
Those who were fortunate to have known and be loved by him knew how fiercely loyal and protective he was. Ryan always had time for his friends and family, and his zest for love and life will always be remembered. In Ryan's own words, "he loved love".
Ryan is survived by his wife Rhonda McBride, her children, Tyler (Tina Nguyen) McNaughton and Terryn McNaughton; his parents, Don and Gloria McBride, and sister Krista (Mike) Stevens - who never left his bedside; parents-in-law, Larry and Darlene Funke, brothers-in-law, Lee (Bonny) Funke, Jay Funke, sister-in-law Tara (Al) Friesen, and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
The profound sadness we are feeling of Ryan's loss, is a true testament as to how large he loved. How lucky we were to have experienced it.
The family would like to thank the Health Sciences Centre ICU team for the excellent, compassionate care Ryan received.
For those who'd like to honour Ryan's memory, contributions to Hull's Haven Border Collie Rescue would be greatly appreciated.
Details of Ryan's Celebration of Life will be provided at a later date.

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
How very sad to hear of Ryan’s passing. My heartfelt condolences to your family. I have such fond memories of Ryan on McAdam ave with Russ and Justin. It is unbelievable that Ryan is no longer with us. May God keep you at this tremendously difficult time. - Posted by: Elaine Lyons (Childhood friend of Russ Lyons) on: Sep 18, 2022
I am sad to hear of Ryan’s passing. He was one of my first friends in life. I have lost touch with Ryan, but I imagine his personality hasn’t changed much. He was always up for an adventure. I recall him calling me up to see if I wanted to go for a cruise. He was 12 and had a spare key cut for his parents Dodge Dart. I ran over to his place and as I rounded the corner of the back lane I saw Ryan in the driver seat with his arm resting on the window. His head barely visible n the window. I jumped in and we went for a drive in the neighbourhood. Just one of many good memories I have of my old friend. My thoughts and prayers go to the McBride family. They will always have a special place in my heart. - Posted by: Russ Lyons (Childhood friend) on: Sep 17, 2022
