Phillipp Jacob Shows, 42, of Vero Beach, FL, went to his heavenly home on March 20, 2023. He was a beloved father, son, brother, uncle, friend, and a Christian.
Phillip was born August 4, 1980 in Orlando, Florida and was raised with four sisters in Indian River County. He attended Sebastian River High School and enlisted in the National Guard. Most recently, Phillipp worked in the construction industry.
Phillipp enjoyed working out, fishing, reading, watching the sunrise at the beach and most importantly, spending time with his young daughter. He also dabbled in stand-up comedy and always made sure his loved ones stayed laughing.
Phillip leaves his memories to be cherished by his daughter, Raelynn Jade Shows of Sebastian; parents, Steve and Annette Mackey of Sebastian; sisters, Dana (Jeff) Burton of Port Charlotte, Tanesa Keller of Port St. Lucie, Alisha (Roger) Mackey of Union City, PA and Jennie Rainey of Clarksville, TN; nieces and nephews, Aubrey, Meranda, Dylan, Robby, Danny, Zoe, Michael, Ryan, Kimberly, Aiden, Mathew, Maximus, Adison, Mateo and Ivy.
At the request of the family, a private celebration of Phillipp’s life will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Phillipp’s name to a charity of your choice.
Arrangements are under the direction of Millennium Cremation Service, Sebastian. Condolences may be shared with the family online at www.millenniumcremationservice.com.
Our caring professionals are here to assist you and your family during this difficult time. We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week to assist in immediate arrangements or pre-arrangements.
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.

To say we will miss you would be an under statement, but we will miss your humor, your thoughtfulness, hugs, and your always asking for our advice which most of the time you didn’t use, but sometimes you did. We loved how much you loved Raelynn and life itself. There’s more and as time goes on I’m sure more will come to mind. Son your mom and I love you so much, our world won’t be the same without you. Rest in peace and our hope is that you are resting in the arms of Jesus. Love you, more.

Phillip, we became friends at Dynamic Life. You certainly were a dynamic individual with a good heart. A protector of those less fortunate. You taught me a good amount about fitness and nutrition. I am thankful to have known you and I will not forget you and what your friendship meant to me.
From everyone at Dynamic Life, we offer our condolences to your family. God bless you and keep you, my friend.

I’ll miss you and our chats, our unplanned meet ups, and swimming hole Sundays. We’ve had a lot of ups and downs together over the years. Clubs, living together, funerals bday parties and bbqs. Always making people laugh and bringing people together. A big man with a soft heart. I’m eternally grateful to have had you in my life. Til we meet again my friend…

I keep re-reading the text message you sent me just last week, telling me that you miss me and how proud you were of all the things I’ve accomplished over the last year. We were even making plans for you to come up here and visit me. My heart is so heavy and truly saddened right now because I know I won’t get to hear your laugh again, but another part of me is filled with peace for knowing that you are resting easy. If only I would have known, I would have flew you up here immediately. I never told you how truly proud I was to call you a brother. I love you bro and you will always be in my heart. I’ll see you on the other side.

I miss you more every day. I miss those Sunday morning, “What’s for breakfast?”or “Wanna meet at the driving range?”. I miss those “Hi mommy!” texts. I still reach for my phone to call you. I listen to the saved voicemail you left in your high-pitched silly voice– “Hi MumMum!! I miss you. I love you. More.
