I am so sorry to here of the passing of Lamar, my thoughts and prayer to all his family at this time of great sorrow. I met Lamar when he was superintendent building condos and l was working on courtyard homes in Johns Island in the early 80’s, we got to know each other alot better when he came to work with my Uncle Chet Moody who l was working for at the time doing Home Maintenance. I enjoyed many fishing trips with Lamar in his pontoon boat and we had great times hunting at his cabin in Bull Creek! He was alot of fun, good man and l will always hold memories with him close to my heart! Rest in peace my friend.

You were a great neighbor! Thanks for all the airboat rides, sharing meals, tuning in to the Wheel of Fortune, and always having exactly what I needed for small home repairs. You are greatly missed by all your neighbors. RIP Lamar

Sparky!! You may not be physically here with us, but you are in spirit! So much fun getting to ride with y’all! I enjoyed taking pics of the last runs we’ve experienced with you in the marsh, Blue Cypress, and Brahma Island. May you ride pain free forever in the sky with all of your favorites! Lots of Love, Louisiana 😉

Dad, I know this is something that we all get to experience at some point in our lives. Meaning the loss of our parents and the loss of ourselves, it’s inevitable. I remember from a very young age you saying “when I die, you and your brother get my stuff”. Now, many years later, your physical life has now ended.

I’m happy that we spent a lot of time in the past 2 years hanging out in the marsh. I could see and hear your joy in our company, considering half of our lives we never spent a lot of time together.

I’m thankful and grateful for so many things growing up as your son. Just to name a few, as a child, I’m thankful for you for being a good provider, for not experiencing mental and physical abuse as many children do, for learning to be respectful, for learning right, wrong, and how to do things the right way. As I sit here and write this, I could go on and on. You are part of the reason I’m who I am today, and part of the reason I’m where I am today.

Rest in peace, and I hope to see you after I leave my physical life…. but not too soon of course! I love you dad! God speed!

Lamar was the uncle that took me hunting and fishing and introduced me to the beauty and joy you can experience in God’s amazing creation. I spent many enjoyable weekends around a campfire and listening to the many stories of their hunting and fishing exploits. I was very grateful to have someone that would pour into me that way since my dad was usually very busy trying to provide for our family.

Dad I miss you every day, we hunted everywhere from Maxey’s ,Adam’s, Lucky L, Georgia and purdy much all over we stretched the barbwire when I was growing up, you taught me how to survive in woods and how to hunt and track and I was good at it and good at killing and we shot so much game together every weekend during hunting season, I think back on those hot trips barely getting away from ol Burny as well as other cowboys, hiding in the palmettos or swamps all day,We airboated all over for years , drank alotta beer and had lots of fun. We got to work together for over 20 years together and I actually got to remodel several houses and condos units that you built early on in your career. Dad I remember all that you taught me and all the secrets we had, but the campfire just ain’t the same without out you, you taught everything but how to go on without my hunting buddy and best friend and I’m really struggling with that on a day to day basis ,Maybe we’ll catch up with one another again walking through that big culvert pipe under the turnpike going back and forth from one side of Maxey’s to the other side,,I miss and luv you dad. REST IN PARADISE

Uncle Lamar, our family of six invaded your home during the summers. As a 12yo niece I loved riding in the beach buggy thru sand trails in the woods nearby. Both you and uncle Johnny made it so much fun. Also, a first time experience plucking birds, not so much. I Recently connected with Chad and other Meeks’ cousins and regret not seeing you all these years later. May God’s peace be with you, your family and friends. Becky

  • 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.
