Former Montgomery County Executive Sidney Kramer Passes Away

by Patrick Herron
Kramer’s energy, passion, and willingness to speak his truth on issues ranging from education, business policy, mental health and advocacy for the aging community impacted many lives. That impact was recognized in 2013 when The Upcounty Regional Services Center was named after him.

County Executive Marc Elrich released this statement upon learning of Kramer’s death:

My thoughts are with Sidney’s children Miriam, Rona, and Ben Kramer who have continued their father’s legacy of public service.
Both Rona and Ben have served Maryland as State Senators and Ben currently represents Maryland District 19 in Montgomery County while Rona is the current Secretary of Aging in Maryland.
We hope the grief and sorrow his children and grandchildren feel over this loss is alleviated by the cherished memories and lessons they were taught by this extraordinary Montgomery County resident and servant.

County Flags will fly at half-staff in honor of Kramer until after his funeral services which have yet to be announced.

Kramer was 96 years old.
