So hard to let our loved ones go . He was such a gentle man with a gentle soul. Just something for a chuckle. I am his niece, and when I was in highschool my longtime boyfriend broke up with me. So my dear uncle, which happened to own a really cool corvette picked me up at school and made sure he would see me laughing with this guy in his little red corvette.. He had no clue that he was my uncle. Job success. Over the years it gave us a good laugh.i will cherish so many memories of him. He was a family man that loved his wife. Linda, and his two beautiful daughters. He will be missed by so many. Love you and RIP, my sweet Uncle Farmer.

I have great memories of my Uncle Farmer and aunt Linda. I always remember him calling me “Kathy sue” and to me he was a gentle soul, like so many of the gross family were and are. I just wish I would have been able to make the trip in March to see him as that was the plan until the world was struck with this virus. I know he will be greatly missed by my sweet aunt and cousins. I want to think that him and dad are reminiscing in heaven right now! . My love to aunt Linda, Missy and Mandy, Kathy

March, 1980 was the beginning of a new job at Dover Elevator for my husband and the beginning of a friendship with Farmer and his family that would span 4 decades. It was a friendship that neither years nor miles (lots of miles) would dim. Farmer was a soft spoken man who loved Linda, Missy, Mandy, and life. He loved his family and he loved his friends and he loved golf, but when together he and my husband Lee would talk ELEVATORS, golf, and ELEVATORS. Farmer, you will be forever in our hearts, and Linda will forever be a part of our Florida vacations ….. and we will talk about Farmer and our memories of this wonderful man …. who loved family, golf, ELEVATORS, and us.

  • 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.
