Steve Del Ponte

July 11, 1953 ~ April 04, 2021

On Sunday, April 4, 2021 Steve Del Ponte, loving husband, father, and grandfather lost his battle with Mesothelioma at the age of 67.

Steve was born on July 11, 1953 in Providence, Rhode Island to Catherine and Lawrence Del Ponte.  He worked most of his life in the construction industry as a master carpenter.  On December 2, 1978 he married Patricia Griffis, they raised three children, Larry, Samantha and Heather.

Steve had a passion for perfection, fishing, and rock ‘n’ roll.  In his free time he would typically be out to sea among the waves and the fish.  When he wasn’t doing that you could find him in his music room learning to play his favorite songs on his guitar.  He was known for his brutal honesty, sincere friendship, and love of good food.

Steve was preceded in death by his father, mother, and brother Anthony.  He is survived by his wife, children, and grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, April 24, 2021 at Avant Garde Academy, 2025 McKinley Street, Hollywood, FL 33023 at 2pm. We will paint the world in Meso Blue to honor awareness and the fighting for a cure.  In lieu of flowers we ask that donations be made to the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation in Steve’s name.  You can do so by visiting www.curemeso.org

    • 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.
