Sanctions Proposed Against Local Funeral Home

Posted:

NewsChannel 11 has learned new information on Gary White and the White Funeral Home of Lubbock.

A NewsChannel 11 special investigation found that White had been accused of selling used body containers while telling the families of deceased that they were new containers.

Also this year, a jury found White Funeral Home had violated a relationship of trust. That same jury awarded a verdict against White for $730,000.

NewsChannel 11 has confirmed through public records and video of a recent Texas Funeral Commissioners meeting that the state proposes a little less than $20,000 in fines. The Texas Funeral Commissioner also proposes revoking Gary White's mortician license.

White is appealing, so these penalties are not yet official.
