Sterling Cooper was a father, grandfather, husband, and son. He grew up in the Vero Beach area and was a member of St Helen’s Catholic Church. While living in Vero Beach he met the love of his life and married her. He was married to Mary Flo Ann Schwey Cooper for 25 years before she passed. He was a businessman and hard worker who prided himself on being a loyal person and a good friend. He had an amazing work ethic and was ambitious and tenacious in his work. He was an entrepreneur at heart – He owned a pit BBQ restaurant, was a police officer, a salesman, and even had fun delivery pizzas after retirement. Sterling was well known by many for his sense of humor and ability to make people feel comfortable and welcome in his presence. He loved golf and was an expert golfer and enjoyed watching the sport long after he had to give up playing it.

Sterling is survived by many people who cared for him. Sterling was glad to connect with his son Jeff and spend his final days with him and his girlfriend, Victoria. They treated him well and helped him very much. Jeff was a very kind son and Sterling and his family were very grateful. Sterling loved his brothers and sisters and spoke of them with genuine affection.

Of all the things he did, becoming a grandfather to Alexander Sterling was Sterling’s greatest joy. He was kind, patient, and loving to his wonderful grandson. He was so proud of Alexander. They shared a love of cooking and watching tv together. He would make spaghetti with Sunday Sauce and a big glass of milk for the both of them to enjoy together. Sterling would take his grandson on many fun adventures and loved to listen to 1950’s music with him like Sheri by The Four Seasons.

Sterling is greatly missed.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
