Thomas Scott Aulick, aka ‘Gator’, age 74, passed away peacefully in his home after a prolonged illness on August 16, 2023. Born and raised in Vero Beach, Florida, he was a die-hard Florida Gators fan and loved Nascar racing.

A Vietnam Veteran, he was drafted into the United States Army right after high school. He served his country from 1968 until he was honorably discharged in 1971.

Thomas was pre-deceased by his parents Donald and Frances, brother Mark and sister Donna. He is survived by his loving wife of 55-years, Anita, their son Richard, and their daughter Cassandra (Todd). Grandchildren Alecia, Alexandria (Corbitt) and Karissa. Great grandchildren Faith, Ethan, and Olivia. In addition to his immediate family, he is survived by his older sister Karman (Marvin), younger brother Steve (Bonnie), and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Shortly before retiring, he joined the Salvation Army of Vero Beach church and was a very active and recognized volunteer. During his service to the Salvation Army, he received numerous awards for his community service, including the 2012 George Bachman Bellringer for Top Bell Ringer and the 2016 Bob MacGowan Award for “Outstanding contribution to feeding those in need.”

Gator Tommy we will miss you, your jokes, your honesty, your love of family, but mostly your heart felt blessings of the meals at the family reunions, when special needs prayers were needed, and so many other gatherings.
May God wrap you in his arms of pure love and joy forever.

He was such a sweet man. I got to know him counting money from the bell ringing.

  • 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.
