Kacey Melanson, a husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend, peacefully passed away on November 20, 2023, in Washington, NC. Born on December 30, 1967, in Jacksonville, NC, Kacey touched the lives of many through his hard work, kindness, and love for the outdoors. He was 55 years old at the time of his passing.

Throughout his life, Kacey demonstrated an exceptional talent as a handyman. His ability to fix anything and his strong work ethic earned him a reputation as a reliable and skilled individual. Kacey approached his work with dedication and commitment, always striving to do his best.

Outside of work, Kacey found solace in nature. He had a deep passion for hunting and fishing, often spending his free time exploring the great outdoors. Kacey embraced the tranquility of nature and cherished the moments spent surrounded by its beauty.

Kacey will be remembered as a beloved husband to his wife Debbie, and father to his three children, Josh Melanson and wife Tonya Hathaway, Brooke Melanson, Kacey J. Melanson Jr. and his wife Hayley. Kacey's role as a grandfather brought him immense joy, and he leaves behind five beautiful granddaughters: Kayley, Dawsen, Kennedy, Emberlyn, and Knaevia.

The bond between siblings is special, and Kacey's four sisters, Kim Cutler (Spouse: Scott Cutler), Karen and Robert Glen Midgette, Katherine and Anthony Briody, and Karol and Gary Tetterton, will forever cherish the memories shared with their dear brother. Kacey also leaves behind many amazing nieces and nephews who held a special place in his heart.

Kacey is preceded in death by his parents, Mintie June Melanson, Lloyd Melanson, and his niece, Amanda Beddard. Their memory will forever live on in the hearts of those who loved them.

    Haley Beddard says:
    Growing up I’ve always had this special connection with my dads side of the family. I was always surrounded by them whenever I was given the chance, so naturally I was close with my uncle Kasey. When he would pull into my grandma Karen’s driveway I would always get so excited and rush down the stairs to go and greet him. Even when I got older, I continued to feel that excitement and joy when I would see him. It pains my heart knowing that I’ll never get to see him pulling into my grandma’s driveway anymore, that I’ll never get that excitement again but at least I know deep down that he’s in a better place with my 2 great grandmas, great grandpa, and my beautiful aunt Amanda. I love you uncle Kasey, and I’ll see you one day with the rest of my family. Rest in peace!
