Obituary for David Allen Melton

David Allen Melton, 35, passed away Tuesday, January 2, 2018. David was born June 1, 1982 in Pitt County to the late Paul George Melton, Jr. and Ruth Ann Norris Melton.

David truly enjoyed the outdoors and fishing. Whether standing at the edge of the river, the bank of a pond or at the coast, the tug of a fish on the line always brought a big smile to David’s face.

He was loving and most would agree he was quite often misunderstood. If David had it, he was willing to give it to you. To quote David’s family, he was a jack of all trades and, like the rest of us never mastered one.. He enjoyed working as a shade tree mechanic and loved to draw. David took great pride in expressing who he was through his tattoo art. His family has fond memories of his pranks and ability to cut up. Seeing others smile and being happy was always the goal.

A memorial service to honor David’s life was held Sunday, January 7, 2018 at 4:00 p.m. from Neuse Baptist Church with Rev. Greg Kincaid officiating.

David is survived by his two children, David Wyatt Melton and Cassidy Nicole Melton; his girlfriend, Chrisanna Mooring; sister, Beth Melton Dawson; brother, Paul George Melton, III; and two half-siblings, Lisa Baker Hicks and Christopher Reid Melton.

Arrangements were entrusted to Rouse Funeral Home, La Grange.
