Robert Kenneth Cable, 66, of Vero Beach, Florida, passed away August 13, 2021, at VNA Hospice House.
He was born March 12, 1955, in Youngstown, OH and had been a resident of Indian River County since 1994.
Mr. Cable retired in 1992 as Sergeant after 20 years of service with the United States Army. He received numerous decorations and medals including Army Achievement Medal, Good Conduct Medal (Efficiency, Fidelity Honor) and Class Bronze Good Conduct 4, National Defense Service Medal, NCO Professional Development Ribbon, Army Service Ribbon, Overseas Service Ribbon and Numeral 4, Sharpshooter Badge, Rifle Bar, Marksman Badge and Grenade Bar. Following his military service, he worked for Busy Bee Lawn & Garden Center, Ross, Press Journal and McKee Botanical Garden and assisted with decorating the gardens during the holiday season. He most recently worked for the Indian River Medical Center under Environmental and Sanitation Department. Part of his joyful and proud memories was being an active School Volunteer in the classrooms, outdoor activities, choir tours and dressed up as Santa for Christmas.
He was an active member of Riverside Church in Sebastian, FL and served as deacon and teacher for the Bible Explorers. He always made sure that the Bible Explorer kids had great Christmas gifts, as we celebrate with them every year, school supplies for back to school and even gifts for birthdays. He completed Level 3 of District School of Ministry under Assemblies of God. He was also a member of the Treasure Coast Healing Rooms Ministry. He loved praying for people.
Mr. Cable leaves his memories to be cherished by his wife of 17 years, Estelita Cable; daughters, Cherlyn (Lewis) Arnold of Vero Beach, Mary Ellen (Ryan) Strickland of Vero Beach, Elizabeth (Charles) Cornelius of Port Saint Lucie, son; Robert Vincent Cable of Sebastian; and daughter Christina Cable of Vero Beach; grandchildren, Jerry, Lyla Rose, Coral Lynn, Cannon, Isabell, Ava, Ella and Bentley; brother, James (Linda) Cable of Sebastian and nieces, Jamie Cable of Sebastian and Dana Marie Pikula of Flint, MI.

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.
