Wharmby Receives Lasting Impact Award From ICCFA Educational Foundation
STERLING, VA (April 28, 2015)—The International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association Educational Foundation presented David Wharmby, CCE, with a Lasting Impact Award during the ICCFA 2015 Convention & Exposition, April 8-11 at the Grand Hyatt in San Antonio, Texas.
The Lasting Impact Awards were created to recognize those individuals who have made significant contributions to furthering professional development and lifelong learning in the funeral, cemetery and cremation profession.
Wharmby began his career in the cemetery business more than 42 years ago with the Gibraltar Mausoleum Corporation in Indianapolis, Indiana. For the past 33 years, he served as senior vice president of sales and marketing for Inglewood Park Cemetery and its affiliate, Parklawn Cemetery, in Inglewood, California. He is currently director of sales and marketing for Western Memorial Corporation and Western Sequoia Corporation.
Wharmby has been a speaker for the ICCFA, the National Catholic Cemetery Conference and Asociación Latinoamericana de Parques Cementerios y Servicios Exequiales (the Latin American cemetery association) along with numerous national, regional and state cemetery and funeral groups. He has been active in numerous community projects and has been honored by several groups including the National Council of Negro Women, American Red Cross, Congress of Racial Equality, National Cultural Foundation, Korean War Veterans and Habitat for Humanity.
“Having had the opportunity over the past 42 years to have recruited and trained hundreds of people, both across the country and across multiple cultures, makes this recognition by my peers all the more meaningful,” Wharmby said.
Founded in 1887, the International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association is the only international trade association representing all segments of the cemetery, cremation, funeral and memorialization profession. Its membership is composed of more than 9,100 rooftop locations and 20,000 professionals in the cemetery, funeral home and crematory industries, as well as supplier and related businesses worldwide.
