Richard Clayton Masse

December 31, 1956 ~ May 05, 2022

Richard Clayton Massey was born on December 31st, 1956, in Miami, FL. He went home to be with Jesus on May 5th, 2022. His Mother was Edna Weller-Massey, and his father was Howard C. Massey. He went to JFK Middle School and North Miami Beach Senior High School. Following in his father’s footsteps he left high school early to work for his father’s Plumbing Company, later joining the local Plumber’s Union in Miami and eventually going on to become a Master Plumber. In the second half of his career, he worked at Lion Plumbing Supply in North Miami where he formed some of his strongest friendships and bonds. He moved to Vero Beach to be closer to his father and spent his last 12 years here. Those who knew him loved him and knew him as a caring and generous friend. He had a big heart and was always helping others. His favorite hobbies were riding motorcycles and scuba diving. He was a certified rescue diver and was proud of the many places he dived throughout the Caribbean. He was a huge animal lover and loved all his pets throughout his life and considered them family, especially his first dog “Shilo” and his cat he left behind “Precious”. He is survived by his son Richard Howard Massey. As per his wishes there will be no service. He asked that his family and friends gather to have a BBQ or party in his name, because in his words: “We’re Irish!” Arrangements are under the care of Millennium Cremation Service of Vero Beach.

I will always love you Dad. I miss you more than words could express. You were my best friend and the best father a son could ask for. You were always there for me. I wish I could have more time with you..but I will forever cherish and be grateful for the time we had together. I know you are in heaven with Jesus now and it must be an amazing place. I hope you are up there diving in heavenly oceans and riding with the wind in your hair. Goodbye is just for now..I know I will see you again in God’s time. Until then, I will miss your unconditional love for me and will do my best to live a life that makes you proud.

  • 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.
