John David Pope
John David Pope, 47, joined God’s perfect light on June 5, 2021 in Cape Coral, FL. He did not begin his next adventure alone. He was in the presence of loved ones. He was born February 14, 1974 in Colorado Springs, CO.
John grew up in New Jersey and moved to Florida when he graduated high school. After serving his country in the United States Navy, he moved to Lee County, FL. Following in his grandmother’s footsteps, he entered into the profession of nursing. After receiving his nursing degree at Edison Community College, he began the career that he loved with Lee Health. He earned his Bachelor of Nursing Degree from Jacksonville University. John excelled and loved his work as a Critical Care Nurse and then as an Administrative Supervisor at Health Park Medical Center. John’s life centered around his family and friends and the more than occasional Disney Trip.
John is survived by his husband, Todd Ryan of Cape Coral; mother, Marilyn D. Bentz of Lehigh Acres, FL; his father, R. David Pope of Puyallup, WA; his hospital family at Health Park; as well as many beloved family and friends, locally and abroad.
