Kenneth William Weber, also known as “Boo” or “The Fish Man”, 56, died September 27, 2021 of COVID-19, at Cleveland Clinic Indian River Hospital, after a very brief illness.
Kenny was born in Camden, New Jersey on October 9, 1964 and moved to Florida at age 6 with his mother, Bonnie Cozens and his sister, Bonnie Lynn Ott (nee Weber).
Kenny was predeceased by his grandfather, William E. Cozens; grandmother, Josephine C. Cozens & brother-in-law, Terry L. Ott.
Kenny is survived by daughter, Kendra Lynn Williams (nee Weber) & her husband, Jonathan of Belle Glade, FL; his mother of Sebastian, FL; his sister of Wellington, FL; nephew, Dr Cody Ott & his wife, Ann of Ft. Lauderdale FL & Pompano Beach, FL; a great nephew, Lincoln Ott, as well as several loving aunts & uncles & cousins.
Kenny was a licensed commercial fisherman who was well respected in the local fishing industry as one who not only fished for a living but also had a lifelong compassion for Florida’s natural resources. He was a kind & generous fisherman who regularly shared his bounty with friends & family. Kenny was also an excellent carpenter & handyman who was often called upon to build, repair & fix everything from kitchens & bathrooms to roofs & decks.
At one time, Kenny also shared his love of “Trapping Gators” & stories with his late brother-in-law, Terry Ott.
Kenny was a gregarious, talkative man who was extremely kind and generous to all. He was often referred to as a “Gentle Giant” by family & friends as Kenny never met a stranger that didn’t soon become a lifelong friend.
We are sure that Kenny will already be telling his “Fish Stories” to anyone in Heaven & Paradise who will listen. Kenny & his happy, smiling face will be truly missed by all who knew him.
Boo, may you be blessed by God and received in the arms of the Greatest Fisherman of all! Your loving family.

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.
