Victor Bruce Zinck

July 16, 1960 ~ June 10, 2020

Victor Bruce Zinck, 59, passed away at his home on June 10, 2020, after a long and courageous battle with cancer.
He was born on July 16, 1960, in Vero Beach, FL and remained a lifelong resident.

He graduated Vero Beach High School Class of 1978, where he was recognized and awarded a scholarship for his winning entry in the National Science and Engineering Fair. He choose to go to the Grand Canyon National Park to study archeology.

He returned to Vero, to start a career in form carpentry, to eventually be considered by many in the field, as one of the premier concrete form carpenters. Specializing in forming stairs, beams and columns.

He was known and admired for his keen interest and knowledge in the fields of Paleontology, Archeology, Geology, and History, and continued to educate himself on these subjects throughout his life.

Victor enjoyed exploring for fossils and artifacts with his wife and friends that shared the same passion and interests.

Enjoyed fishing, scuba diving, and snorkeling. Also enjoyed growing and eating various tropical fruit, from the trees that he planted throughout the yard.

His weekends, holidays, and spare time was spent on his property, on the banks of the Suwannee River.

Victor was survived by loving wife, Marie Zinck, daughter, Erin Zinck, mother, Ruth Hamilton Sheets (Don), and stepmother, Carol Zinck; siblings, Christopher, Shaun, and Kathy Zinck, Steve (Mechelle) Sheets; stepsisters, Kim Justice, and Kathy Valentine; many nieces, nephews, their children, and cousins.

He was predeceased by great-grandmother, Annie L. Price, his son, Ryan Wesley Zinck, and father, Norman “Bruce” Zinck.

At the request of the family, there will be no services.

In Lieu of Flowers, the family requests to donate to the Ronald McDonald House, in Gainesville, Fl. 1600 SW 14th St. Gainesville, FL 32608, Trump2020 reelection campaign, or the charity of their choice in memory of Victor Zinck.

I am so sorry to hear of Victor’s death. I was a babysitter for him and his siblings when they lived on Atlantic Blvd., across the street from my house. He was always such a well behaved little one, the oldest of the siblings. I lost contact with the family when they moved away, but am happy to have contact now with his brother Shaun and have been able to see Ruthie and Kathy at a dinner party recently. My prayers are with the whole family.

Words cannot express the sorrow, and void that I feel in my heart right now. My Brother and I have shared some Great times, Happy times,and Sad and Tragic times.But the wonderful thing about it is, that we shared them together and were there for each other,no matter what. As I write this, the tears are welling up and falling like rain. Victor, even tho you are not here, your presence will always be. Love you Brother!! Marie, I will as always, be here to lean on and to help any way I can. To all his friends and other family members, I just want to say, ” He is Gone from this Earth, But will never be Forgotten” Till we meet again Victor. Rest in Peace with the Angels and Say hi to the ones who are there with you,our Pets and People alike.

Recent Reviews

  • 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.
