Hubert Masmontet

April 05, 1922 ~ August 13, 2021

Hubert Masmontet died peacefully surrounded by family on Friday, August 13, 2021 in Vero Beach, Florida. He lived his 99 years to their fullest, captivated by world travel first as a child moving between Cuba and France; then as an Air Force Captain; later as Chief Pilot for Gulf & Western, and finally, as a husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and uncle who had earned the active retirement he so enjoyed. Hubert was predeceased by his devoted wife of 71 years, Carlina, and loving daughter, Lina.

He is survived by his three beloved grandsons, Ty Barnes of Palm Beach, Drew (Mariana) Barnes of Orlando, and Matt (Whitney) Barnes of Vero Beach, and four great-grandchildren who adored him: Thomas and Alexander Barnes of Orlando, and Elle and Annabelle Barnes of Vero Beach, as well as devoted nephew, Emilio (Deborah) Lerma, nieces and cousins from Miami to Paris. He is defined by his strength and courage, his resolute devotion to family, his unflagging optimism and his ease of being in anyone’s company. His legacy is rooted in his love of aviation and flying, his family and friends, world travel, and a nice glass of wine.

A funeral mass will be held at a later date.  In leu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to VNA Hospice of Indian River County.

  • 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.
