Roy Vernon Caton (January 28, 1927 – July 29, 2010) was an American trumpet player and session musician.
After graduating from high school, Caton served in the Army until 1946. Following his discharge from the service, Caton attended the Schillinger School of Music, where he took his degree in 1951. A tour with Woody Herman's Third Herd Orchestra put him on the road with seasoned musicians, before he settled into work as a session player in Hollywood recording studios.
