Vincent John Lane

July 19, 1931 ~ May 29, 2023

Vincent John Lane, 91, passed away on Memorial Day, May 29th, 2023 in Vero Beach, Florida. Born in 1931 to Calvin and Prudence (Waugh) and raised in the Boston area, Vincent graduated from the United States Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point in 1953. Lieutenant Lane subsequently served in the United States Navy aboard the USS Ingraham (DD-694) as Chief Engineer. A naval architect and mechanical engineer, Vincent was successful in many endeavors, both professional and personal, though he struggled at times with his golf game.


Vincent was predeceased by his siblings Henry, Mary, Tom, Prudence, Claire, Madeline, and Agnes. He is survived by his sister Kathleen and his loving wife, Ann (Haney). He leaves behind his five children with his late wife Eleanor (Schildbach): Jennifer, Gregory, Timothy, Douglas, and Justin, most of whom inherited his love of coffee, sweets, and a good book, and who in turn blessed him with a host of grandchildren and a great-grandson.


Vincent will undoubtedly be best remembered for his raucous sense of humor, and he would not have wanted it any other way.

  • 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.
