Prince George’s county residents are invited to pay their respects to former county executive Wayne Curry at two public viewings this week.

Curry, 63, died July 2. He announced in April that he had been diagnosed with lung cancer.

As county executive from 1994 to 2002, Curry brought major developments to Prince George’s County, including FedEx Field, Largo Metro Station and the Sports and Learning Complex.

The body will lie in state from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday at the county administrative building, located at 14741 Governor Oden Bowie Drive in Upper Marlboro.

A second viewing will be held from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Thursday at First Baptist Church of Glenarden, 600 Watkins Park Drive in Upper Marlboro. The viewing will be immediately followed by a celebration of life at the church.

The internment will be held privately, according to a statement from the family.
