Rodney was a great co-worker and friend to Garfield and his wife Blanche for over 18 years! Rodney and Garfield talked about sports, politics, and any subject in the news! We will definitely miss Rodney humor and big smile. May his soul rest in peace! Condolences to Sonja and the boys and the family!

Rodney was an amazing human being. He was an old fashioned, unique character you can’t quite find any more in others. He was funny, smart, humble man who was god fearing and loved his family. We spent almost 8 years working together where we would constantly joke around and help each other out making our day more fun. May you rest in peace my brother you will be missed Immensely. I’m going to miss the times we argue over politics and all the things we used to talk about. You brought joy and smiles to any room you used to walk in. You are genuinely an amazing person. I love you man. Until we meet again one day. My condolences and prayers go out to Sonja, Jr, Brandon, and Zach. He will be watching over you guys. He loves you very much and he will be missed by many.

Rodney was a positive energy to be around. Always gave positive insight regardless of the situation. He was my co-worker for 13 years. He adopted me as “little sis” on the job as I did he as my “big brother”. He will truly be missed!
Prayers of comfort and strength for Sonja and the boys.

From the beginning of the twenty plus years we worked together, I have respected and admired Rodney’s love and devotion to his family, his work ethic on the job, the strength of his faith, his positive values and the goodwill he left with those he encountered. He loved his family and I know he was so proud of his boys, Rodney Jr, Brandon and Zach. So many times he would share stories about his sons with those of us in the office. I was privileged enough to have these guys do some work for the office on more than a couple of Saturday mornings. Rodney leaves so many behind who have been indelibly touched by his loving spirit, and he has left us much too soon. May you rest in peace Rodney.

Our condolences to to Sonja, Jr, Brandon, and Zachery
With love, Craig and Barbara

My gentle brother. Rod loves, loves to laugh. He loves the Lord, Sonja, their boys, and his family. I am yet attempting to process this. This hurts tremendously. I know my brother is resting in the arms of our Lord and Savior. Rodney, I will miss you always. I miss our chats. I called your number in hopes you would answer. I love and miss you tremendously. Until we meet again ❤❣

Life is but a vapor, you are here one second and gone the next. If you have not surrendered your life to Christ, just know this, there is not a requirement to be ill or elderly for God to call you home. Be ready to meet the Lord before He calls your name.

Our condolences to the family. Our prayers is that God be the lifter up of your head. In times like these I know that there is nothing that could be said at this moment to take the pain away. But it’s during this time, God is caring you all and you all are in God’s hands. We love you and to my (Belinda) BFF Debra, I am here for you all. Love you.

  • 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.
