Maryland flags across the state will be lowered to half-staff in memory of Wicomico County Executive Bob Culver, Governor Larry Hogan announced. Culver passed away on July 26 after a monthslong battle with liver cancer.
Culver, 67, had served as County Executive since 2014 after joining the county council in 2010. In a Facebook post, Culver’s family said he died peacefully in his sleep after fighting a “courageous battle” with cancer.
