Wednesday, November 14, 2012 - Actor Sherman Hemsley will be laid to rest at a military funeral more than three months after his death in July .

The Jeffersons star passed away in Texas after a battle with lung cancer, but his memorial service was delayed and his body was held at a funeral home while the courts ruled on a dispute over his will.

A judge in El Paso, Texas decided on Friday (09Nov12) that the star's will is valid and gave permission for Hemsley's benefactor, his longtime friend/manager Flora Enchinton Bernal, to finally go ahead with funeral plans.

Bernal's attorney Alexander Neill has now revealed the star will be given a military funeral and laid to rest at Fort Bliss National Cemetery in

El Paso in tribute to his years served in the United States Air Force before he took up acting.

Neill tells U.S. website, "My client is planning on a military funeral for Mr. Hemsley at Fort Bliss National Cemetery here in El Paso. Mr. Hemsley previously served in the United States Air Force and thus

is eligible for a military funeral."

It is not yet known when the memorial service will take place.
