“Kamenetz was at his home in Owings Mills, asleep, when he awoke at about 2 a.m. and complained of feeling ill. He was transported by the Garrison Fire Station's Medic 19 to St. Joseph, where doctors pronounced him deceased at 3:22 a.m.”

The news stunned his friends and colleagues.

"I am just sitting in my office numb,” said Don Mohler, his longtime aide.

The two-term county executive is survived by his wife, Jill, and the couple’s two sons.

He woke up around 2 a.m. feeling ill and was pronounced dead less than an hour and a half later.  

Sometimes you don't know when it's your time.

Condolences to his family. 60 years old is way too young to go. Very sad that two sons aged 16 and 14 lose a dad like that.

Very very sad. 

 

It’s not always pain in the chest and arm. Sometimes it’s just “feeling ill.” Don’t be afraid to start those compressions!

That's exactly what happened to a good friend of mine at 40 yrs old.  Thankfully his wife is a nurse and she knew his family history.

Sometimes it's too late to get yourself checked out.

That’s what happened to my husband in Aug. He said he “felt weird,” sat down and passed out. I immediately called 911 and started compressions. It was a blocked coronary artery. He’s fine now, but it was scary as hell for awhile. 

The same thing happened to a friend, who just “felt ill” and took a nap. He never woke up. He was only 53.

It doesn’t always show up. Depends on what it is.

If you have a family history its best to get checked out.
