Keith Tennant was a loving husband and a much beloved wrestling coach and university professor. He put together a winning wrestling team at the University of Florida in 1969 and coached until 1974. Keith had many academic accomplishments at 3 universities (UF, State University of West Georgia, and the University of Kansas) where he served as a professor and mentor to both graduate and undergraduate students and as an administrator at all 3 schools. However, Keith’s greatest achievement was his talent for listening to other people and touching their lives in such a unique and positive way. Keith was an amazing person as he had such passion for life and radiated warmth to everyone he met. He loved his students and he adored his wrestlers who he always said were his family. He was radiant, endearing, and had so much compassion for other people and so much integrity in everything he did during his life. He was funny, smart, and loved to play golf, racquetball, sailboard, water ski, snow ski, and of course wrestle. He was an exceptional human being who touched everyone’s life in a wonderful way through his gentle guidance and he was a man who led his life by positive example. It is easy to see how everyone had such a deep affection for Keith as he was such a beautiful and warm human being who had the golden touch. Keith passed away at the age of 80 on January 13th, 2023 after an extended illness. He leaves behind his loving wife and soulmate Laurie and his very large family of wrestlers which includes, but not limited to, Gary Schneider, Tim Granowitz, Ron Pinnell, Henry Jackson, Chet Sanders, Bob Roberts, Bob Penna, Nils Strandskov, Tim Worsowicz, Jeff Davis, Joe Russo, Mark Totten, Dave Rothman, Joe Ramos, Matt Bell, Kirk Anthony, Dean Tibbetts, Arthur Haberman, and Woody Krantz the student athletic trainer. We love and miss you Keith and you will remain forever in our hearts, our souls, and in our memories.

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.
