Veteran Hemsley Honored During Final Services

With the above in mind the comedic actor Sherman Hemsley died during the summer of 2012, and
there was a dispute surrounding his estate. His last will was challenged by Richard Thornton, a man
who turns out to be Hemsley's half-brother.
In the last will that Sherman Hemsley left behind his resources were bequeathed to a woman named
Flora Enchinton. He also stipulated that she should be the executor of his estate. Though he was from
Philadelphia originally Hemsley moved to El Paso, Texas. He has been quoted as saying "I'm from
Philly, but El Paso is my home now and Flora is my family."
Ultimately the court found in favor of Enchinton and the matter has finally been put to rest after the
dispute raged on for more than three months.
Sherman Hemsley did indeed know what it was like to live life among those who are not rich and
famous. He served in the United States Air Force for four years, and subsequently spent eight years
working in the Post Office in Philadelphia after leaving the military.
He is highly thought of among those who knew him, and he was honored as a military veteran during
his memorial service. Hemsley earned the privilege of being being laid to rest at Fort Bliss National
Cemetery in El Paso, and he was buried there on November 21.
