It is with great sadness that the HCBA notes the passing of our
Honorable Judge “Kit” Sfekas of the District Court of Maryland for
Howard County on June 28, 2002. Kit
died at GBMC after a 4 month struggle with medullary thyroid cancer,
with his wife, Lauren, at his side.
Judge Kit put up a good fight, with support from his family, and
the literally thousands of friends and many others he touched.
Judge Kit Sfekas will be remembered by the legal community for his
fairness and legal abilities. Kit
the man will be remembered by those who knew him outside the courtroom for
his smile, his genuine warmth and caring, his coaching abilities and his
devotion to his family and community.
He made the time for Lauren and his daughters, Allie and Lindsey,
and for many of the young people in the community.
On behalf of the members of the HCBA, we extend our sincerest sympathies
to Lauren, Allie and Lindsay, as well as our thanks for sharing Kit with
all of us.
Anyone wishing to send a note to Lauren and the girls can do so on line
