LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Whiter-Hendrix Funeral Home upon the
occasion of its designation as recipient of the 2013 Milestone Award by
the Herkimer County Chamber of Commerce

WHEREAS, It is the practice of this Legislative Body to recognize that
the quality and character of life in the communities across New York
State are reflective of the concerned and dedicated efforts of those
organizations which devote themselves to the welfare of the community
and its citizenry; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to commend
Whiter-Hendrix Funeral Home upon the occasion of its designation as
recipient of the 2013 Milestone Award by the Herkimer County Chamber of
Commerce; and
WHEREAS, This auspicious occasion will be celebrated at the Chamber's
45th Annual Membership Meeting and Luncheon on Thursday, April 25, 2013,
at the Knights Inn in Little Falls, New York; and
WHEREAS, Established in 1893 in Forestport, New York, by H. Abe
Whiter, Whiter-Hendrix Funeral Home has been handed down from generation
to generation ever since, each one building on the tradition of
personal, professional and compassionate service; and
WHEREAS, Whiter-Hendrix Funeral Home relocated to Ilion following a
fire in 1906; the original location in Ilion was on West Street and the
business later moved to its present location on Otsego Street in 1936;
and
WHEREAS, The business was handed down through five generations of the
family; these generations include: H. Abe and Erminia Whiter, Roscoe and
Anna Whiter, Howard L. and Erminia (Whiter) Hendrix, Len and Sandy
Hendrix, and Scott and Geri Hendrix; and
WHEREAS, The Hendrix name was added in 1958; Whiter-Hendrix Funeral
Home is currently owned and operated by Len and Scott Hendrix; they are
both licensed funeral directors and respectively represent the fourth
and fifth generations of the family to own and operate the firm; and
WHEREAS, With the ability to accommodate 200 individuals, Whiter-Hen-
drix Funeral Home is a full-service funeral home whose services include
traditional and modern funeral services; its facilities are fully hand-
icap accessible with two ramps and wide doorways and offers the largest
casket display room in its area; and
WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that when organiza-
tions of such noble aims and accomplishments are brought to our atten-
tion, they should be celebrated and recognized by all the citizens of
the great State of New York; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend Whiter-Hendrix Funeral Home upon the occasion of its designation
as recipient of the 2013 Milestone Award by the Herkimer County Chamber
of Commerce; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the Hendrix Family.
