We are deeply saddened to report that Deacon Mark Hoeplinger of Saint George Church in Buffalo NY fell-asleep in the Lord, suddenly and unexpectedly, on Thursday, October 8th while traveling overseas. An accomplished medical doctor and surgeon (otolaryngologist), Deacon Mark was a graduate of our Diocesan Diaconal Formation Program prior to ordination by Archbishop Michael. His life of service (diakonia) to others in the love of the Lord was noteworthy, as were his contagious enthusiasm, manifest joy, and ever-present smile. Our deepest sympathies are expressed to his Matushka (Dr.) Christine and to their family.

 

In addition to faithful service in his home parish, in the NY State Deanery, and throughout the diocese, Deacon Mark was an active and valued member of the Board of Trustees at Saint Tikhon's Orthodox Theological Seminary.


Deacon (Dr.) Mark Hoeplinger graduated from St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute. He later attended SUNY Buffalo and earned his BS Cum Laude in biochemistry. He continued to Medical School at SUNY Buffalo, and on to his Internship in general surgery at Buffalo General Hospital. His residency in Otolaryngology, Head/Neck Surgery was completed at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. Upon graduation from Hopkins, he was given the Samuel James Crowe Award as the most outstanding resident. He was also given a Hopkins Chair, the first time this was ever given to a resident.

 

Deacon (Dr.) Mark was Board Certified in all aspects of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery and Licensed in New York State and Maryland.  He was a Fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, American College of Surgeons and Associate Follow of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery; a member of the American Medical Association, American Academy of Sleep Medicine, and American Rhinologic Society.

 

Deacon (Dr.) Mark was a member of Christian Society of Otolaryngology, the Christian Medical and Dental Association and Catholic Medical Partners.

 

He was very active with his commitment to faith based medicine and volunteers once or twice annually with Faith in Practice, an overseas mission committed to medical/surgical care to indigent parts of the world. As such he has performed surgery and rendered medical care in Africa, Peru and Guatemala. Articles about his overseas medical missions have been published in multiple venues, including Buffalo Physician Magazine.

 

Deacon (Dr.) Mark Hoeplinger was, furthermore, an active participant in medical student as well as resident teaching, and has been a faculty member of the ENT Department of the University at Buffalo Medical School for over 25 years.
