TUSCALOOSA - It is with heavy hearts that the family of David Richard Mauritson, MD, JD, age 67, report his passing on February 1, 2016.
Born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1948, David attended Westminster College, Harvard Medical School and the Birmingham School of Law. He was a board-certified cardiologist who founded Cardiology Associates of West Alabama in Tuscaloosa and was in practice for over 40 years. He also practiced law in Alabama for 7 years.
Dr. Mauritson was an avid pilot and flight instructor who volunteered with the Civil Air Patrol. He was a member and past National President of the Flying Physicians Association. He was also a member of the National Association of Flight Instructors and an official with the United States Tennis Association, among many other professional and civic organizations.
He played the trumpet and baritone with the Baldwin Pops Band, and volunteered at the Alabama Free Clinic. David was also a member of the Fairhope Unitarian Fellowship.
David is survived by his wife of 42 years, Eleanora Mauritson; his sister, Barbara Brown (Dick) of Rowlett, Texas; and his brother, James L. Mauritson of Oklahoma City, Okla. He is also survived by his two adult children, Amy E. Mauritson, MD of Memphis, Tenn. and Eric B. Mauritson of Tampa, Fla.; his daughter-in-law, Lydia Mauritson (Eric); and his two grandchildren, Luke David Mauritson (age 4) and Audrey Eleanor Mauritson (age 1).
David was preceded in death by his father Donald F. Mauritson; his mother, Janet E. Mauritson; and his sister Nancy Mauritson.

Mauritson had been a member of CAP since September 1991.

He's had his pilot license since he was a teenager, and survived a nasty plane crash in Tuscaloosa in 1995, where he worked as a cardiologist.

His wife Eleanora told AL.com that her husband was "a good man and a caring person." He graduated from Harvard Medical School and had been flying for 50 years.

Mauritson's mother taught him how to fly, and he taught both of his adult children. He helped fly angel flights as well other humanitarian missions.
