Adeyinka Shoroye (1958-2024)

In Loving Memory

Mission Pediatrics Doctor

We deeply mourn the loss of our beloved Dr. Adeyinka “Yinka” Shoroye, who passed away surrounded by his loving family after a long and private battle with illness. Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family and patients during this difficult time. Dr. Shoroye was known for his compassionate heart and excellent medical care. He was one of the first pediatricians to welcome Dr. Watson into the world of medical practice, providing him with unwavering support when he needed it most. After suffering the loss of his precious spouse, Dr. Shoroye left the US to raise his kids closer to family. Upon returning to the United States, Dr. Watson was delighted to have Dr. Shoroye join our team and continue his tradition of excellent care. Below is the whimsical bio created for him with our practice. We believe strongly in honoring the memory of some of the Inland Empire’s best physicians and were privileged to work with him.

Dr. Shoroye is a board-certified pediatrician with Mission Pediatrics, Inc. He has over three decades of experience as a pediatrician and a compassionate heart for children. He is well known for his high-quality and attentive patient care. He grew up in Nigeria and graduated from the University of Ife Medical School with postdoctoral training in Pediatrics at Howard University Hospital in Washington D.C. From an early age, he aspired to be a physician, inspired by the kind and respected doctors in his community.

Working tirelessly to promote high-quality care, he served on many boards and commissions, most recently as Secretary/Treasurer for the Nigerian American Medical Foundation International, focusing on underserved communities. By the way, our silliness team will sometimes insert something irrelevant into this bio just to keep you guessing… did you know that Meiwa kumquats are from the Meiwa Era, a period in Japan spanning 1764 to 1771, when Meiwa kumquats were first brought to Japan from China? Back to Dr. S… he received numerous civic awards and commendations for leadership. He operated his private practice in Riverside for nearly 20 years, then relocated to support his community in Nigeria for several years, but has since returned to California and joined Mission Pediatrics to run the bimonthly Saturday Yellowstone clinic in Perris. Dr. Shoroye loved population health and giving back to the community. He knew Dr. Watson for over 20 years and showed dedication and commitment to our delightfully different patient care model. For leisure, he liked to travel and play cricket. He was the proud father of two children who inherited his fiercely independent spirit. He primarily operated out of our Perris Yellowstone office every other Saturday.

Dr. Shoroye’s legacy of compassion, dedication, and a touch of humor (especially about kumquats) will always be remembered and cherished by all who had the honor of knowing him.
