BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – On June 16, 2023, Dr. Rameshwar Narayan Mathur, 88, of Titusville, Florida, passed away peacefully at Parrish Medical Center with his beloved wife, Dr. Uma Rani Mathur at his side along with his children and close friends surrounding him.
Rameshwar was born on April 6, 1935, to Govind Narayan Mathur and Sushila Devi Mathur in Lucknow, India. After completing his basic education, Dr. Mathur completed his Bachelors in Science at Lucknow University. He then completed his MBBS from King George Medical College (KGMC) in 1962.
After graduating with his medical degree, he started working for the Indian Railway Department as Chief Medical Officer for 13 years, during which he further pursued his master’s in surgery from Post Graduate Institute (PGI) in Chandigarh, India in 1972.
In 1975, Rameshwar married Uma in Lucknow with their families’ blessings on June 25, 1975. Uma lovingly claims that they saw each other for only five minutes and she said yes because he was so handsome and it was love at first sight. They would go on to celebrate what would be 48 years of marriage this year.
Dr. Mathur and his wife moved to Zambia where he was appointed Medical Director of the hospital in the city of Lusaka, while Dr. Uma R. Mathur also worked along his side. Together they went on to have their first child, Gaurav in 1976, and their daughter, Devi in 1978. They later adopted his niece, Yogita Mathur, in 1991.
In 1979, Dr. Mathur made another leap, and moved to the United States. He completed his residency in Family Medicine from Cook County General Hospital in Chicago, Illinois while his wife completed her training in Pediatrics.
In 1985, they moved from the cold chill of the Midwest to sunny Florida to open their private practice in Port St. John and Titusville, Florida. He had a prosperous, rewarding, and successful career for the next 40 years. His affiliations included Parrish Medical Center, and several nursing homes for 35 years.
Rameshwar was a kindhearted soul, a fearless simple man with great ambitions. He believed in hard work and sincerity. His passions were his family, his work, and his entrepreneurial drive. He was a force of nature and had the ability to impact countless lives. He always made everyone around him feel loved, safe, and cared for.
He would say, “the biggest risk is not taking a risk at all.” He also had a fun-loving, jovial side to his personality and knew how to deliver the most appropriate aphorisms at any given time. He was a talented chef and singer and loved traditional Hindi music. He will be remembered with immense love from his family and respected by his friends and patients and community.
Dr. Rameshwar Narayan Mathur is survived by his wife, Dr. Uma Rani Mathur, his son, Dr. Gaurav Narayan Mathur (Vandana Singh Mathur, and their children, Mahira and Rivaan), his daughter, Dr. Devi Narayan Mathur (Dr. Shishir Mathur, and their children, Aarav, Aashir, and Aavien). He is also survived by his niece Yogita Faykosh (Matt Faykosh and their son, Liam).
May the soul of Dr. Ramesh Mathur rest in eternal peace.
