John Robert Piecuch, Jr.

July 05, 1944 ~ April 22, 2022

John Robert Piecuch Jr., 77, of Vero Beach, passed away April 22, 2022.


John was born in Hammond, Indiana, on July 5, 1944, to John Piecuch and Wanda Sylvestrowicz.  He had been a resident of Ronkonkoma, New York for 36 years, coming from Munster, Indiana. John married his wife Kathleen Ann Feltzer on August 12, 1967.


John graduated from Bishop Noll high school. He attended Purdue University before being drafted and sent to Vietnam. He then worked for Motorola Communications before starting a new career in 1981 as a licensed owner/operator of a McDonald’s franchise location in Long Island, New York. He served on the McDonald’s regional purchasing committee, the New York board of McDonald’s advertising co-operative and was president of the 86-member Long Island Owners Association for six years prior to his retirement.  After his wife passed in 2013, he moved permanently to Vero Beach, where they had been snowbirds. During his time in Florida, John was a director of the Vero Beach Yacht Club and active on the Fleet Committee.


John and Cindy Kelly, his partner for the last six years, enjoyed the fun they had at the Vero Beach Yacht Club and everywhere they went together.


He is survived by his children, Robert and Jennifer.


John was predeceased by his wife of 46 years, Kathleen in 2013

We miss John at the Yacht Club! He was a gentle, generous soul who never met a stranger and gave so much of himself on our board of directors and Fleet Committee. I wish him fair winds and following seas as his journey continues.

  • 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.
