Sherman Hemsley was on ice in an El Paso funeral home for months while a man claiming to be his half-brother came forward to challenge the validity of his will. Now that a judge has ruled on the Sherman Hemsley case, he can finally be buried in a proper funeral. Lawyers for Flora Enchinton have confirmed that a military funeral is now being planned for Hemsley, who served in the United States Air Force for four years before he began acting. The funeral should be held at Fort Bliss National Cemetary in El Paso.
