Martina McBride Suffers Family Loss

Martina McBride and her family have suffered a horrible loss.

According to a new report on Taste of Country, the singer’s father-in-law, John Douglas McBride, passed away on December 30th at the age of 85.

In his younger days, McBride had served in the United States Air Force and practiced law in Wichita for five years. He later worked as a professor of anthropology and business at Wichita State, and eventually ended up heading both departments.

Martina used Instagram to leave a touching tribute to her father-in-law, describing John and his late wife, Flavia, as “two of the best people [she] had ever known.”


He is survived by his younger sister, Nancy, four children, twelve grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.
