Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz remembered as family man

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz remembered as family man

 

Friends and loved ones are gathering Friday afternoon for Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz’s funeral. He died early Thursday morning of cardiac arrest, leaving residents and colleagues alike in shock and sadness.

“I hope my dad knew how much he meant to me. I hope he died knowing that he was my role model. I hope he died knowing that I loved him endlessly,” said Kamenetz’s son, Karson.

Sharing in her husband’s well-known sense of humor, Kamenetz’s wife, Jill, said, “If he watched the beautiful tributes that were all over television last night about his life, he’d say, ‘Look, Jill, I’m on every station and it’s all positive!’”

Kamenetz, 60, called 911 himself around 2 a.m. while in the parking lot of the Chestnut Ridge Volunteer Fire Company with his wife. The station is located about 2 miles from the Kamenetz home. He complained of feeling tightness of the chest and Chestnut Ridge crews took him inside to evaluate him. He was taken by an ambulance crew from the Garrison Fire Station to the University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center where he died a short time later.

Kamenetz’s funeral takes place at 2 p.m. at the Baltimore Hebrew Congregation in northwest Baltimore, and a burial will follow the service at Baltimore Hebrew Cemetery in Reisterstown.
