April 18, 1937 ~ December 01, 2021

Thomas F. Onderdonk, 84, of Vero Beach passed away on Wednesday, December 1, 2021 at the VNA Hospice House. Tom, as he was more affectionately known, was born April 18, 1937 in Rochester, New York to Harold and Marion (nee’ Burris) Onderdonk. He worked for as a machinist for General Motor. Following his retirement he and his wife, Kathleen “Kay”, relocated to Vero Beach 7 years ago. In his spare time Tom enjoyed camping, traveling, and watching NASCAR races both live and on television. It was his family that Tom cherished most. He loved taking care of the kids, grandkids and great-grandkids; vacationing with family; and upon moving to Vero he could usually be found helping out at the family business. Tom was active in the “Walk to Emmaus” events. He was a member of First Methodist Church in Vero Beach where he provided security, and he and Kay were members of the Couples Life Group. He is survived by his loving wife of 45 years, Kay L. Onderdonk; sons, Scott (Clara), Robert (Susan), John (Teri), Don (Linda), and Michael (Julie); daughters, Cheryl (Doug), Susan (Anthony), Catherine, Pamela, Lisa (Scott), Patricia (Bobby), Barbara, Margaret (Joseph) and Danielle; a host of grandchildren, great grandchildren, and foster children. The family will be holding services at First Methodist Church in Vero Beach.

I’ve known the Harold and Marion Onderdonk family since 1946. I lived a few doors down from them. As a young a kid, Tom, his brothers Dan and David were always kind to me. They all had an outstanding sense of humor and enjoyed teasing me. Their parents were a class act.. I’ve always held high regards and respect for them.

I’m sending sincere condolences to all family members for the passing of Tom. May he Rest In Peace.

  • 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.
