Four Months After Death, 'Jeffersons' Star to Have Funeral TheWrap

Almost four months after his death, "The Jeffersons" star Sherman Hemsley will be laid to rest, reports TheWrap.com.

Hemsley, who played George Jefferson on "All in the Family" and "The Jeffersons," will have a public funeral Wednesday in El Paso, Texas, where he died of lung cancer in July at age 74.

His burial was delayed by a dispute over his estate, with a Philadelphia resident claiming to be his brother. Hemsley had named a longtime friend, Flora Enchinton Bernal, as his heir.

Hemsley will be buried in El Paso, the report notes.
