Marco A. Gonzalez, 49 of Port St. Lucie, Florida went to be with the Lord the last week of August 2023.
He was born October 5, 1973 in Englewood, New Jersey; one of three children born to Diego A. and Maria Gonzalez. Marco moved to Port St. Lucie in August 2012 from Cliffside, New Jersey.
Marco was an independent contractor working as a product developer for crypto exchange and had also been a consultant for information services. He was very proud of earning a Masters Degree in Aviation Administration from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, Daytona Beach, Florida.
He was a Christian and believed in the goodness of God and the promise of salvation.
Marco was passionate about football. He was an accomplished running back at St. Peter’s Prep in Jersey City and later, as a senior at Cliffside Park High School, earned all state recognition for taking “down the big guys”. For him, the game was a metaphor for life.
Marco enjoyed hiking up the mountains nearby and sometimes persuaded his dad to join him just to spend time together. After moving to Florida, he embraced the beauty of the ocean. Frequently taking long drives with his father to talk, share feelings and explore beaches together. Stuart Beach was his favorite spot to surf and swim. That is where we intend to cast his ashes.
We will always remember how he cared and expressed his love with carefully selected token gifts for birthdays, Christmas, and often for no reason other than to express his love
Marco is survived by his loving parents, Diego and Maria; sister, Kristina Heit; brother, Gregory Gonzalez; niece, Miranda Heit; nephew Devin Heit and long time family friend, Alicia.

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.
