John Gregory O’Laughlin

January 31, 1949 ~ March 24, 2024

John Gregory O’Laughlin passed away peacefully on March 24, 2024, with his family lovingly by his side. •
Born January 31, 1949 to Elsie and Leroy ‘Red’ O’Laughlin, John lived a rambunctious young life in Fort Pierce, Florida with his two sisters Kathleen and Nora, along with many other family and friends nearby.
John worked as a bailiff for the St. Lucie County Sheriff Department, followed by a career at the Indian River County jail. He also served our nation proudly in the United States Army, which is where he met his wife, Mary. They were married on May 19th, 1990, where he became part of the family with his two step children, Alex and Lindsay. In 2003, John became a proud grandfather of Owen, and soon after, Leah in 2004. From the day his grandchildren could talk, the name ‘Poppy’ became how he was known around the house. Included in his family were also his cats, which he loved fiercely, and which cherished his warm and inviting lap.
John was strong-willed and stubborn at times, but he also had an enormous heart, a wonderful sense of humor, and an infectious laugh. He loved to play a round of golf with his grandson and sit and watch a football game with his granddaughter. He also enjoyed going to car shows and races with his wife and friends.
He will be remembered for all the love, laughter and doughnuts he shared with his friends and family. He will be missed dearly.

  • 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.
