Memorial service for Bill McBride set for Friday

TAMPA — A memorial service for former gubernatorial candidate Bill McBride will be held at 1 p.m. Friday at the Palma Ceia Presbyterian Church, 3501 San Jose St. in Tampa.

The service is open to the public. The family will receive friends in the courtyard of the church at the conclusion of the service.

McBride, 67, died of a heart attack Saturday while on a holiday trip in Mount Airy, N.C. He was visiting the hometown of his wife, Alex Sink, also a former gubernatorial candidate. McBride, a Tampa lawyer, lost a bid to become Florida's governor against Jeb Bush in 2002.
