GOLDSBORO, N.C. -

Funeral arrangements for Wayne County's late sheriff are being postponed due to the threat of incoming inclement weather.

A service to celebrate the life of Sheriff Carey Winders was scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 29. The funeral has now been moved to Friday, Jan. 31 at  2 p.m.

Visitation will continue as planned for Tuesday, Jan. 28 from 4 to 9 p.m. at Faith Free Will Baptist Church located at 1200 West Grantham St. in Goldsboro.

Winders body will lie in state at Shumate-Faulk on Jan. 27, from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Jan. 28 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.

Winders died unexpectedly of a heart attack at his home last Friday morning. Wayne County EMS began treating Winders at his home before transporting him to Wayne Memorial Hospital.

The Wayne County Sheriff's Office said Maj. Fane Greenfield will serve as sheriff until the County Commissioners appoint some to fulfill the rest of Winders term.
