Frank D. Marden, just shy of 88, of Vero Beach, FL, went to be with the Lord May 3, 2023.
Frank was born in Roxbury, MA on May 25, 1935, to proud parents Charles and Leona Marden. He had been a resident of Vero Beach for almost twenty-five years coming from Cherry Hill, NJ.
Frank graduated from Framingham High School in Framingham, MA before attending Northeastern University in Boston, MA, where he received his Undergraduate Degree. Frank then went on to attend Boston University Law School, where he received his Doctorate in Law. He married the love of his life, his missing bookend, Jessie M. Marden on June 11, 1994, in Cherry Hill, NJ. Frank was a Colonel in the US Army and a Federal Judge prior to his retirement. He enjoyed participating in activities at the churches he attended, where he was the President of United Methodist Men’s group and a member of the Band of Brothers. He also enjoyed bowling, playing backgammon “challenges” before dinner with Jessie, playing games with friends and family (especially cornhole), traveling, and had a passion for antique cars.
Frank is predeceased by his father, Charles Marden; mother, Leona Marden; stepmother, Eleanor Marden; sister, Betty Lee Ward; brother-in-law, Pat Osborn; and stepson, Todd Cheeseman.
Left to cherish his memories are his loving wife, Jessie M. Marden; children: Laura, Tim (Jeannmarie), and Kristen (Craig); stepchildren: Tammie and Jason (Megan); daughter-in-law, Susan; grandchildren: Robert (Rachel), James, Cyrus, Brandon (Meghan), Mikey, Jac, and Michael Patrick; and great-grandson, Arlo Wesley.
Brother, Charles (Annette); sisters, Maureen (Mike) and Charlene; nieces and nephews.

Love forever and a day.
All for His Glory.

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.
