The News Journal of Wilmington reports that the funeral for 66-year-old John Wheeler III will include a procession in a horse-drawn carriage and his cremated remains will be laid to rest in a columbarium at the Virginia cemetery.
The newspaper says a spokeswoman at the cemetery confirmed the funeral would begin at 9 a.m. on April 29.
A neighbor told The News Journal that Wheeler's family held a private service for him back in January.
Wheeler was a driving force behind the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and had worked in three presidential administrations.
His body was found among trash being dumped at a Wilmington landfill on Dec. 31. A medical examiner determined Wheeler died of blunt trauma injuries after being assaulted.
Newark police also said they still have no suspects in Wheeler's slaying.
