TOWSON, Md. (AP) -
Democratic candidate for Maryland governor and longtime local politician Kevin Kamenetz is being remembered as a loving father and husband, and ambitious public servant.

News outlets report that Kamenetz's wife and one of his sons were among those who eulogized him during a funeral Friday afternoon at a local synagogue.

Kamenetz died unexpectedly early Thursday after going into cardiac arrest. The two-term Baltimore County executive was 60.

U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin also spoke at the service.

According to radio station WBAL, Cardin says he regularly met Kamenetz for breakfast. Cardin says instead of jumping straight into politics, Kamenetz would talk about his family.

Kamenetz was one of seven candidates in next month's Democratic primary to oppose Republican Gov. Larry Hogan this fall.
