On Friday March 9, 2001, Auvy McBride, was taken home to be with our Savior
and Lord, when he was killed in terrible car accident.
Auvy was born on March 10, 1962 and is survived by his wife Nora,
his five children, Buck, Aileen, Valerie, Lisa, Michael, two
sisters Leah and Andy, and his
mother Leslie and step-mother Shirley.
Auvy was loved by everyone here at Internet Gateway as well as by
Auvy was a man of few words but the words he spoke were always of
importance. When Bryan and Auvy had first met they were on a trip once
and Bryan asked Auvy how come he didn't say much. Well Auvy quickly
responded that it was because Bryan said enough for the both of them.
Auvy had a dry sense of humor that took a while to become apparent
to people he had only known for a short time. Bryan and Auvy had
been working at an auction when the next thing up for bid was what
appeared to be a type of stuffed dog. Out of the blue Auvy spoke out
and said, "That's my dog Shep, what have they done to you shep?"
From then on Bryan knew this was going to be a great friendship.
Auvy was a devoted family man and husband and son. He loved his family
dearly and did many things with them. They went on cruises and family
trips to New Mexico. They had recently moved into their new home in
Bertram and were looking forward to the time they would have
together. It was Auvy's dream to have his whole family move to
Bertram and had even picked out lots judt s\down the street for his
mother and sister.
Auvy was a hard worker and could learn anything. He could read the
manual then go do what needed to be done. He was not afraid to take on
any challenge. He was an intelligent man that new lots of trivia.
Bryan and Keith once played a game with Auvy called "You Don't
Know Jack." Well it became obvious in a hurry that Auvy did know
jack and proceeded to whip up on Bryan and Keith. At the end of the
game Bryan and Keith were in the negatives and Auvy was in the plus
10,000 point range. He was a person you would always want on your team
in these types of games.
Auvy loved gadgets. Anything with buttons fascinated him and was
usually one of the first to have something new. He used all the tools available
to him to make his life easier and we learned a lot from that.
Auvy was very methodical in all he did. When he found something he
liked he stuck with it. He had lost quite a bit of weight and was
keeping it off over the past year. Everyday he would eat a garden
burger for lunch and when he would microwave them Bryan would tease
him that they smelled like old rubber. But he didn't let what others
say bother him.
Auvy was instrumental in making Computer & Internet Resources
what it is today. His attention to detail and computer knowledge was
something we all were impressed by. He could fix just about anything
and if he wasn't sure how he could usually find out.
We will all miss him deeply and will always have an empty spot in
our lives without him. We treasure a lot of fond memories and thank
God for the time we had to spend with Auvy. It is never easy to say
goodbye to a loved one especially at such early an age but together
with friends and family we will endure.
We ask that you pray for his family and friends as they go through
this most difficult time. If you would like to send your condolences
please send them an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
or if you would like to do more we will be setting up a trust fund
soon for the children. We will keep this updated as this progresses.
We love you Auvy!
