Gov. Larry Hogan (R) ordered flags be lowered today through sunset on the day of Kamenetz's interment.
Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz died of cardiac arrest early in the morning of May 10.
In a press release, officials say Kamenetz was at his home in Owings Mills, asleep, when he awoke at about 2 a.m. and complained of feeling ill.
Kamenetz was pronounced dead at the University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center in Towson at 3:30 a.m. He is survived by his wife, Jill Kamenetz, and two teenage sons.
The County Council will now have to vote on a replacement for Kamenetz to serve the remaining seven months of his term.
"I was with Kevin yesterday evening at a Democrat gubernatorial forum at Bowie State University".

Officers are now trying to locate next of kin. "There was nothing much I could tell them", said the semi-retired farmer. Dawson said firearms were also found at the scene. "I can only describe it as a horrific situation", Dawson said.
"He was a man who dedicated his life to public service", Hogan said.
Medics attempted to restart Kamenetz's heart with an electronic defibrillator three times, and performed CPR during the race to the hospital. "Our prayers go out to his wife, Jill, his sons Karson and Dylan, and to his entire family", Hogan said.
Kamenetz consistently polled among the top three candidates and had raised more money than anyone else in the field.
Dozens of messages of condolences from all across the government spectrum are dominating social media following the sudden death of Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz.
"I just remember very specific conversations had in the past", Ehrlich said. Polls showed him running close to Prince George's County Executive Rushern Baker, another of the leading contenders.
Councilwoman Cathy Bevins (D-6), also reacted via Facebook, writing, "I am shocked and saddened by the sudden death of County Executive Kevin Kamenetz". Until then, the county's administrative officer, Fred Homan, will serve as acting county executive.
