Meredith Jr., Carlton

Obituary

Carlton Meredith, Jr. went to be with the Lord on the morning of November 18, 2020, at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas.

Born in Dallas, Texas, on July 14, 1923 to Edna Ruth (McLaughlin) and Carlton Meredith, Sr., he graduated in 1940 from Highland Park High School where he was the Managing Editor of “The Bagpipe”, a Captain in R.O.T.C. and a member of the National Honor Society. He went on to the University of Texas where he completed a five-year petroleum engineering degree in three years. During World War II he served our nation as a sergeant at Fort Bliss. Following military service he worked in the oil fields of West Texas before returning to Dallas to join his father as a property tax consultant. Carlton worked in this capacity for over 50 years before retiring in 2005. During his years as a tax consultant, he helped craft legislation for property tax relief and was instrumental in the founding of several state property tax organizations.

He was a devoted husband and father, preceded in death by Martha Ann Fowler Meredith, his wife of 53 years, and by a second wife of three years, Lydia Elizabeth Andrews Meredith as well as by his sisters, Nancy and Barbara.

He is survived by his children: Carlton Meredith III, Keener Meredith, Martha Hope Meredith Miller, and Jesse Flynn Meredith; by his six grandchildren: Nikkholai Miller, Amber Page, Ian Miller, Haley Meredith, Abigail Meredith, and Henry Meredith; and by his great granddaughter, Lily Rose Page.

In his mid-thirties, after a period of thoughtful reflection, Carlton made a conscious decision to give his heart to Christ. He loved his Lord and Savior, and was blessed to see all of his children follow in his footsteps by professing their own faith in Christ. He lived a long and full life, filled with family and friends. He was loved and appreciated by those who cared for him in his last years. By God’s grace Carlton blessed us for a long time and continues to be salt to our lives.

The funeral ceremony will be held at 10:00 a.m. on December 11, 2020, at the DFW National Cemetery, 2000 Mountain Creek Parkway, Dallas, Texas.

The memorial and celebration of life service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on December 12, 2020, at Bethany Bible Church, 3300 West Parker Road, Plano, Texas, presided by Pastor Marvin Effa, Jr.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
