Jimmy Ray McBride was born in San Antonio, Texas on August 1, 1928 to Christine Reichert Weiss and Jimmy L McBride and passed from this life on June 14, 2021 at his home north of Okeene. Jim was raised by his uncle and aunt, Jake and Emma Penner, on their farm east of Loyal. Jimmy attended and graduated from Loyal High School.

Jim farmed in the Loyal and Okeene area, and he also ran a custom harvesting crew for thirty-eight years. Each year they started in Texas and worked their way as far north as Chester, Montana. Jim, Olinda, and family moved for a short time to Wyoming, where he also took up farming. When moving back to Okeene, Jim farmed until he and Olinda both retired and moved to their home north of Okeene. Jim enjoyed working on and building race cars and tinkering with motorcycles.
