Bruce Shope Obituary

Bruce Wayne Shope passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, on February 10, 2024 after an unexpected illness.  Bruce was born on January 24, 1958, to the late Richard and Catherine Shope.  A native of Lake City, Florida, Bruce has resided in Crestview, Florida for over 30 years.  He served in the United States Air Force as an Avionics Electrician and has since worked as a subcontractor on Eglin Air Force Base for more than 30 years.

In his free time, Bruce enjoyed cooking, gardening, fishing, and a love of classic muscle cars.  More than anything, Bruce enjoyed spending time with his family, who he loved and spoiled.  He doted on his grandchildren and created memories to last a lifetime, from fishing together to giving horsey rides or just snuggles with Papa.  Bruce was the type of person everyone turned to for good advice.  He always brought out a smile with his witty jokes and wry sense of humor, a trait which he passed on to his daughters.

Bruce is survived by his loving and devoted wife, Linda Shope.  His legacy will continue through his daughters: Crystal Janasiewicz (Adam) of Lake City, FL; Melissa Shirley (John) of Pace, FL; Brandy Shope of Tucson, AZ; step-daughter: Sherri McClellan of St. Simons Island, GA; his adoring grandchildren: Ally, Haley, Amaya, Kaito, Cora, and Robert; great-grandchildren: Lincoln, Christopher, and Colton; and numerous other extended family members..

Arrangements are under the care and direction of Whitehurst-Powell Funeral Home in Crestview, Florida.  A visitation will be held on March 2, 2024 feom 10:00-10:30am with the funeral service starting at 10:30am
