The funeral service for Ziggie Gene Vincent which was scheduled for Saturday has been postponed, with a date yet to be set.
The family say they are "saddened" at unforeseen circumstances which prevent the service being held at this time.
As soon as we can finalise these proceedings we will let everyone know when the funeral can go ahead.Jodie Vincent
Jodie Vincent, Ziggie's aunt, said they should be able to let the community including the Wiradjuri Nation, Elders and respected community members of a date soon.
"As soon as we can finalise these proceedings we will let everyone know when the funeral can go ahead," she told The Area News on Wednesday.
"We are hoping to have more information in the next few days."
She states legal proceedings will need to be settled before the funeral can go ahead.
In a statement posted on social media earlier in the week, she said the "events over the last couple of days are extremely difficult for the whole family".
The 19-year-old NRL star from Griffith took his own life just after signing with the Canterbury Bulldogs, attaining a prominent role in the club's Jersey Flegg squad.
Both talented and popular, Ziggie Vincent has left a legacy in the Riverina, achieving the Rising Star award in Group 20 and leaving an everlasting impression along the way.
