Melton M. Caison
Melton M. Caison, affectionately known by everyone as "Caison," joined the firm in 1963 after working for a funeral home in Fayetteville. A native of Sampson County, Caison attended the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science in Cincinnati, Ohio after graduating high school. In 1974, Caison purchased part of the business from Mr. Benjamin Carlisle. Their partnership proved to be successful, eventually resulting in the need for a larger facility. In 1979, the current location of Carlisle Funeral Home was constructed, having been designed by Caison himself. The new facility ushered in a new era of efficiency for the funeral home, thus affording the families of Tarboro and Edgecombe County superior comfort and convenience. Caison and his wife Jane reside in Tarboro. He has two children, Mel and Wendy, and five grandchildren. Dedicated to community service, Caison is an active member of the Rotary Club. He and his wife Jane are members of First Baptist Church in Tarboro.
