Dr. Mohammad Shafiei died peacefully at home, Monday, November 6, 2017 (15 Aban, 1396).

Mohammad was born October 17, 1945 (25 Mehr, 1324) in Arak, Iran. He came to the United States after finishing Medical School at Tehran University. Upon completing a Residency in Neurology at George Washington University, Washington DC, he became a lifelong resident of Cumberland, Maryland. It was here that he established he Neurology practice doing what he loved—serving his medical patients from 1982 till October of this year when he decided to retire!!

He is survived by two sons (Bobak Michael Shafiei) (Rameen Jonathan Shafiei & wife Danielle Everett Shafiei). His children meant the “world to him”. They were the total “light in his life”. No one was a prouder father than he!

He is also survived by former wife (Susan Bailey Shafiei) who remained his friend through the years, so that they could share the “bond of their children together”.

Mohammad is preceded in death by parents (Ali Akbar Shafiei & Taj Agakhany). He leaves behind four brothers and four sisters living back in Iran.

Secretary (Missy Martz and daughter Marissa) became his “adopted” family. Missy always went above and beyond to help him with whatever the task at hand might be! So too, long time employees (Linda and Terry Getson) were invaluable in Mohammad’s life.

Dr. Shafiei was beloved and respected by family, friends, and colleagues. He will be missed by so many here in our Cumberland community.
