Welcome to the Melton Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Inc. website.


• Due to circumstances beyond our control, Melton Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Inc. closed as of Monday, June 29, 2015 at 5:00pm. I want everyone in Jackson County to know that Dad’s years at Melton were among the most cherished memories he carried in his heart. He would go to the cancer doctor for radiation treatment Monday - Friday and Chemo on every Monday, and would drive to the funeral home and help with families and funerals. His Love for the people of Jackson County showed in all he did for them. This is a bitter/sweet time in my life, wishing that I could have been at a place where I could take over and operate the funeral home. It hurts me when I look at the business and see what it could have become. And then I see the damage that the news media did to the business. Dad was in the process of building back the business. It is with my blessings as David and Carrie take control of the new business created by this merger. I wish them well in this new endeavor. If anyone has questions or concerns. Please contact David or Carrie Gates at: 828-586-2444.

God Bless America
