Luther E. Cason

Founder

Luther was born and reared in Dade City, Florida and graduated from Moore Mickens High School. Upon graduation from high school, Luther joined the United States Army and served for a period of nine years. While in the Army, Luther became one of the first African-American Flying Fixed Wing Aircraft Crew Chiefs. After receiving an honorable discharge from the armed forces Luther became employed with Garris Funeral Home in Fayetteville, NC as an apprentice which was the stepping stone for his enrollment at Miami-Dade Community College where he pursued and obtained a degree in Mortuary Science. While attending Miami-Dade, Luther served as the President of Mu Sigma Tau, a mortuary science honors fraternity, in 1971.

 

After graduation, Luther returned to North Carolina and established Cason & Myers Mortuary in Raleigh, NC. In 1973 he returned to his native state and in 1976 established Community Funeral Service in Brooksville, Florida. In 1987, Luther expanded the business by acquiring East Dampier Street Funeral Home of Inverness Florida, which later became known as Cason Funeral Chapel. Both locations are now known as Cason Funeral & Cremation Services.

 

In addition to his business endeavors, Luther is very committed to improving the community. He has served on many organizations' boards in the past including: Hernando County Economic Development Council, Habitat For Humanity, Hernando County Tourism Council, NAACP- Hernando County chapter, and the Hernando County Mental Health Center.

 

As a testament to his community involvement, Luther was the first African-American elected to the Brooksville City Council. While serving on the City Council, he was elected as the first African-American Mayor of Brooksville, Florida.

 

Currently, Luther serves as the President of the Brooksville Cemetery Advisory Board, a member of the Brooksville Kiwanis Club, Elks, Masons, and Brooksville Regional and Spring Hill Regional Hospital Board of Directors.

 

Luther is married to Mary G. Cason and has five children.
