William C. Mercier (“Bill” or “Sharpie”), age 88, died while surrounded by family on Sunday, April 10, 2022. Bill lived in Vero Beach, Florida for many years with his beloved partner, Sally Holt.
Bill was born November 20, 1933 in Massachusetts to Clement and Mary Mercier and grew up in Maine and New Hampshire. He enlisted the U.S. Air Force and lived in many countries abroad including England, France, and Bermuda. He served as an air traffic controller while achieving the rank of Technical Sergeant during his enlistment. After retiring from the Air Force in 1971, he lived in Michigan, South Carolina, and eventually settled in Vero Beach, Florida. He owned and operated a sharpening business in various states. Friends called him “sharpie” and he was often referred to as “one sharp guy”. He enjoyed spending time with family, helping others with projects, and had a vast knowledge of model railroading. Bill will always be remembered for his energy and his quick and inventive sense of humor.
He is survived by his long time partner, Sally Holt of Vero Beach, whom he referred to as “the love of his life” and his daughter, Karen (Alan) of Suffolk, Virginia. Bill was known and loved by many members of Sally’s family that live in Vermont. Bill also had brothers and sisters in New England and had grand-children and great-grand-children that he loved and enjoyed spending time with. Bill was preceded in death by his son, Glen (senior) and grand-daughter, Rosalynn.

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.
