ICCFA To Honor Industry Legends With Lifetime Achievement Awards
The ICCFA will award Lifetime Achievement Awards to Frank B. Stewart Jr., chairman of the board of Stewart Enterprises Inc., and Robert L. Waltrip, founder and chairman of the board of Service Corporation International, during its 2010 Convention & Exposition, March 10-13 in San Antonio, Texas.
The Awards will be presented during the association’s “Leadership Worth Following” Luncheon from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. on March 13 at the Hilton del Palacio in San Antonio, Texas.
“Frank Stewart and Bob Waltrip are two of the most visionary and influential leaders in our profession,” said ICCFA President Gregg Williamson, “and we are pleased to be able to honor them for their lifetime of contributions to the industry and to the association.”
Frank B. Stewart Jr. is Stewart Enterprises’ former president and chief executive officer. He served as the board’s chairman emeritus from 2004 to 2007 and was chairman from 1984 to 2003. He joined the company, which today operates 218 funeral homes and 140 cemeteries, in 1959. He is a past president of the Southern Cemetery, Cremation & Funeral Association and the Louisiana Cemeteries Association.
Robert L. Waltrip grew up in his family’s funeral business, which he began to manage in the 1950s. He began buying additional funeral homes in the 1960s and grew the business into a company that now encompasses more than 1,500 funeral homes and 400 cemeteries in the United States and Canada. He is a past president of the Texas Funeral Directors Association.
