Merle F. Red Carlon
ATTLEBORO Merle F. Red Carlon, 84, passed away on June 6, 2019 at the Miriam Hospital, surrounded by his four devoted daughters. He was the loving husband of the late Patricia A. (Lizotte) Carlon.

Merle served his country in the Army National Guard and went on to work as a caster and mold maker at LG Balfour for over 35 years and also operated his own business Carlon Casting for many years. Merle served as a deacon and custodian at the First Baptist Church of Attleboro where he truly enjoyed dedicating his time. He also enjoyed fishing, hunting and swimming and was known by many as a expert poker player. Merle was happiest being outdoors and was a true sun worshiper. He also had a passion for music and dancing with his late wife. A kind man with a wonderful and unique sense of humor, and a fondness for dessert. He will be deeply missed by his family and countless friends.
