Derril Wesley Dehne

November 02, 1928 ~ June 14, 2024

Derril Dehne, 95, of Vero Beach, went to be with the Lord on June 14, 2024.
He was born in Robinson North Dakota on November 2nd, 1928 to Emil Carl Dehne and Jennie
Inga Dehne.
Derril grew up on a farm in North Dakota until his enlistment in the Army. After he left the Army,
he remained in New York for several years while working as a mechanic. It was there, while
working at a service station, that he met the love of his life Anne Laurino. They were married in
1956 and then moved to Florida where they remained during their 67 years of loving marriage.
Throughout their marriage they lived in Miami, Tamerac, Wellington, and Jacksonville, before
moving to Vero Beach 4 years ago.
After moving to Florida, Derril got a job as a laborer with the City of Miami Beach. He retired 25
years later as the Department Head of the Building Maintenance Division where he was
responsible for the operation and maintenance of all government buildings in the City. After
retirement from the City, he went back to work as the Maintenance Supervisor for a large
Condo Complex in Broward County. He remained there for another 20 years.
Derril was an amazing Father, Grandfather, and Great Grandfather. He was known for his ability
to build or repair just about anything, as well as for his willingness to help anyone with any
project or repair. He especially loved working alongside his children and grandchildren, helping
them with any projects they might have and passing along his knowledge and abilities.
He is survived by his loving wife Anne; his daughter Denise Crawford (Frank); his son Derril
Dehne Jr. (Christine); grandsons, Kenneth (Angela); Kevin (Andrea), great grandchildren, Aidan;
Ella; and Rylan; and his brother, Marvin Dehne.
Services will be private.

  • 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.
