Mason "Hugh" Melton, 89, of Dublin, Georgia, passed away on November 8, 2023 at his home.

Hugh was preceded in death by his parents, Charlie & Edna Jones Melton, and his siblings Ben, Denny, Sammy, and his twin sister Mary Sue Melton.
Hugh honorably served his country in the United States Navy from 1954 until 1958. Hugh's dedication extended beyond his professional life, as he was a devout member of Charity Baptist Church, where he found solace and strength in his faith.
