David George Mauney

June 7, 2021

CHARLOTTE – David George Mauney of Charlotte, North Carolina passed away at home on Monday, June 7, 2021 at the age of 66.

David was born in Charlotte on December 6, 1954 to Sally Ann Brown Mauney, currently of Charlotte, and the late William Shayle Mauney.

David attended high school in New Orleans and graduated from Louisiana State University with a degree in Construction Management. He was a member of Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity, where he made lifelong friends. In 1980, he married his high school sweetheart, Nan McWilliams Mauney, in New Orleans. On May 8, 2021, they celebrated the 50th anniversary of their first date.

David began his career at Blount International in Montgomery, Alabama and later joined Pyramid Masonry Contractors in Atlanta. In 1987, he moved to Charlotte to open Pyramid’s North Carolina office where he worked until he retired as Executive Vice President in 2019. David's work is visible on numerous projects throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia.

David was an active member of Providence United Methodist Church. He and Nan taught Children’s and Youth Sunday School classes for ten years and later joined their cherished Crosstalkers Adult Sunday School class where David quickly became a rotating lesson leader. He held several leadership positions in the church, serving on the Church Council and chairing the Board of Trustees and Staff-Parish Relations Committees. For many years, he volunteered serving meals at Roof Above, one of the church’s local mission partners.

Golf was an important part of David’s life and he was a Saturday regular in the Fowler Group at Carmel Country Club. He served on the Club’s Board of Directors and was on the Facilities and Strategic Planning Committees. In 2018, he served as President of the Club.

David was a kind and humble man of impeccable character and strong ethics. He will be remembered as a steadfast and committed husband, father and grandfather, and a cherished friend and role model to many. He prioritized family over everything.

In addition to his mother, David is survived by his wife of 41 years, Nan; daughter, Kristen Mauney Baker and husband, Nicholas of Raleigh; and son, Jonathan David Mauney and wife, Emily of Brooklyn, NY. He leaves behind his granddaughter, Anna Louise Baker, who knew him as her beloved “Grandy”. He is also survived by his brother, William Shayle Mauney, Jr. and his wife, Laura of Houston, TX, and several nieces and nephews.

The family would like to extend their sincere gratitude to his medical team at the Duke Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center and his therapists at Atrium Health Carolinas Rehabilitation - Pineville for their compassionate care.

A memorial service will be held in the sanctuary at Providence United Methodist Church on Tuesday, June 15, 2021 at 2:00 PM. The service will be open to all who wish to attend.

    Dearest Nan, my heart is so heavy for you and your family. You and I lost touch with each other after our mothers’ time together in assisted living, but I have thought of you so much over the years. I saw in Sunday’s paper about Dave, and wanted to reach out and let you know how terribly sorry I am and that you will be in my prayers. Praying that God will hold you close during this difficult time. With love, Sharon Cole

  • Ben Brookshre

    I knew Dave for many years as a competitor, and the last ten years as a customer. In both relationships, he was a man of honor, integrity, and goodwill. He will be missed. I hope the family can find peace in their memories of him.

  • Bonnie White

    Ed and I wish to express our sincerest condolences to you Jonathan & Kristen. We will always remember the fun times together following the Clefs, and especially how Dave liked to tease Ryan's grandmother who went to Ole Miss on their rivalry. Though only knowing him for a short time, it was so evident what a fine Christian man he was. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  • Judy and Barry Barrows

    We have known Dave for over 40 years beginning with our time together in Winston-Salem. We reconnected when Judy's parents moved to the Charlotte area and continued our friendship when our son and family moved to Charlotte. Dave has been a wonderful friend of ours and Barry's erstwhile golf buddy. Dave's personality and humor were among his traits that made him special. Dave will be sorely missed, but he will remain in our memories forever. Our hearts are heavy and our thoughts are with Nan, Kristen, and Jonathan.

    I have known David since 1978, I believe, when he came to work in Montgomery, Alabama for Mercury a division of Blount. Just out of school, he was the brightest, hardest working person you would want to know. I had the privilege to attend his marriage to Nan in New Orleans. A few years later he came to work with me again at Pyramid Masonry. David was always a person of high character and when it came time for Pyramid to branch out into new areas David was the first choice to head up one of those endeavors. CL Cook and myself thought so much of David that he was given the choice of which office he was going to have. He chose Charlotte and as they say the rest is history. He became Pyramid to every contractor and person in the Carolinas that dealt with him. David lived his life be it in business in family or his personal time as someone of the highest character and devotion to whatever aspect of his life that was before him. You were more than proud to call him your business partner or your friend. I will miss him greatly and always regret that COVID kept me from seeing him this last year plus. The phone conversations were not enough. Knowing what had been dealt him we always seemed to end up in tears when we talked. Nan, Kristen and Nick, granddaughter Anna, Jonathan and Emily can always be proud of David as a husband, a father and a grandfather. He was simply the best. I was proud to call him my friend. I will miss him greatly. The legacy he has left behind is something we should all strive for.

  • Bob McWilliams

    David became a part of our family 50 years ago. Through high school and a long distance collegiate relationship, Nan and David's love for each other continued to grow. David was considered a second son by my parents and I will always be grateful for the respect, care and assistance he gave them.
    Nan and David have raised two of the finest people that I know which speaks volumes on the character of his family.
    I'm proud to have known David not as my brother-in-law, but as my brother. Much love to the entire Mauney family.

  • Hogan Medlin

    To Nan and Jonathan, and your whole family:

    My deepest condolences for your loss, and really for all of our loss. Mr. Mauney (as I always called him) was such a nice man who always made me feel welcomed, listened to, and remembered. One of my favorite parts of being a Clef Hanger was getting to know the parents of the other guys — Mr. Mauney will always be a highlight for me of that experience. I so appreciated his thoughtful questions and conversations about what I was up to, or politics of the time - he just really knew how to engage people in truly authentic ways.

    I have all of you in my thoughts and prayers in this hard time. If there’s anything I can do to be of service, please don’t ever hesitate to ask.

    Much love and comfort - Hogan
