Mark L. Shope, M.D., 61, of Tacoma, WA and Fountain Hills, AZ passed away peacefully on Tuesday, October 9, 2012.

Mark was born on January 11, 1951 in Kansas City, Missouri. After graduating High School in 1969, he enlisted in the Air Force, starting out at the Prep School in Colorado Springs, then and graduated from the Air Force Academy in 1975.

Mark then attended The Columbia School of Medicine, Missouri. He did his residency at Travis AFB in California. He also served at Wichita Falls, Yokota and Elmendorf AFB's. He later went into private practice at Valley Women's Healthcare in Auburn, WA, before retiring in 2010.

Mark was a well loved and respected OB/GYN. He had a great deal of enthusiasm and always went to work with a big smile on his face, and what a smile it was! In Mark's spare time, he loved to travel, golf, hunt and fish. He was a true outdoorsman who's quest for adventure had no bounds.

Mark is survived by his wife, his loving fourlegged friend, Romeo, his mother and 2 brothers.
