Tom was a friend and classmate from VBHS Class of ’64. I remember Tom as a soft-spoken, caring person who was always “there for you”. My sympathy to the families. R.I.P., Tom.

Having worked with Tom at Vero Beach Police Department when I was there from 1970-1976 I can tell you when it came to law enforcement he was what you wanted out there protecting you. Not mentioned is his obiturary was his career with FEMA. He was a Disaster Assistance Employee who worked in the security division as a Disaster Security Specialist (DAE). I retired from FEMA as a Special Agent, Security Specialist, Special Deputy U.S. Marshal and helped Tom get hired into the security DAE division. He did outstanding work at FEMA and worked many disasters as a security manager.

Tom was a neighbor of ours when his family first moved to Vero Beach a long time ago. Such a nice guy. So sorry to hear of his passing. My sympathy to his entire family. RIP Tom.

  • 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.
