Deputy McBride worked during a time before the high tech equipment and extensive training. He enforced the law when an officer had to have courage, people skills and most of all the respect of the people he served. He had all the above and more. When I was hired by the Pittsylvania County Sheriffs Office in 1978 some of the older Deputies told who the man was in the picture on the wall. I appreciate Deputy McBrides willingness to set the example for us later officers to follow.

When I was hired in 1979 there was a rather obscure black and white photograph of Deputy McBride hanging on the wall in the deputies workroom. I inquired as to who he was, only to receive the simple response, "He used to work here." Now 27 years later, I have had the honor to meet this man through his death whom many have called a true friend. That small black and white image has developed into a beautiful color portrait through the living legacy of the family he left behind. Until I meet you again may I say Thank You for the gift of sacrifice to the citizens of Pittsylvania County.
