Mark Anderson Shields Obituary

Our beloved Mark A. Shields of Chesapeake, VA peacefully left this earth on Wednesday, June 26, 2024, at the age of 57, surrounded by his loving immediate family.

Mark was born in Charlotte, NC to Dawn Shields and the late Ronald Shields and is survived by his wife of 27 years Rosy, son Jackson (24), daughter Emily (20) as well as his two younger brothers Matt and Jason, and their families who will all carry on his legacy in love and honor.

All who knew Mark, whether it be childhood friends in Kings Grant, life-long college friends at UVA, or friends and co-workers at Nations Bank, Bank of America, and Citibank, knew him as a kind, humorous, gentle, generous, and grateful man whose love and devotion of family and friends not only defined his character but his zest for life. His love of the Blues, sports, and his never-ending loyalty to his Alma Mater UVA, further defined his optimistic personality and indelible enthusiasm for living a humble yet fulfilling life.

A celebratory gathering of Mark’s inspirational life will be held at Oman Funeral Home & Crematory, Sunday, August 4, 2024, beginning at 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. where close family and friends will gather in remembrance of him and his remarkable ability to embrace life with unrelenting positivity. His absence will be felt profoundly but the memories he built with all who had the privilege of knowing him along the way, will live on.

Family and friends who want to sign and share personal memories in Mark’s online guestbook can do so at www.omanfh.com. The site will also offer floral ordering options. 


Donations toward Mark’s celebration costs can be made through Venmo @marksdonations.
