David Follett

March 01, 1940 ~ August 21, 2020


David Follett, 80, of Vero Beach, Florida, passed away peacefully after a brave battle with cancer on August 21, 2020, surrounded by family.

He was born to parents Richard and Christabel Follett, on March 1, 1940, in Cardiff, Wales. Dave was a master mechanic who worked on cars, trucks, buses, trains, and oil tankers. Dave immigrated to the United States at the age of 27. He lived in New Jersey, Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville, and Vero Beach. He was famous and very popular among his friends due to the numerous interesting stories he would tell while sitting at the pub.

Dave rejoins the love of his life Gaynor, who were married for 52 years. Dave is survived by his three children Stephen, Helen, Kevin, and their spouses Michelle, Edward and Julie.  Dave had four grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

There will not be a service at this time due to COVID-19.

Dave was a great friend, and always had interesting stories to share. He will be sorely missed.

I have just learned of Dave’s passing when I was unable to contact him during my latest phone call. Dave has been a good friend since the 1950’s in Cardiff, Wales. We attended the Llandaff Technical College together, and I was instrumental in helping Dave and Gaynor come to America in the `60’s and assist in finding his first job in New Jersey. We lived in different parts of the country over the past 50 years, but it was always a pleasure to connect with Dave and Gaynor either over the `phone or in person in Fort Lauderdale, over a “pint”. Both great people, who were always welcoming and who always enjoyed life. Although they have now both passed, we can rejoice in the fact that they are now back together once again, to carry on the love affair that they had with each other since our days in Cardiff, a half a century ago. Rest in Peace, my good friends……..

  • 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.
