It is with deep sadness and regret we write to inform you of the passing of our dear friend and local member, Kirk Penberthy.
Kirk was former president of the Washington-Baltimore Branch of SAG and served on the SAG National Board as well as the AFTRA Executive Board. He also served on various committees over the years, representing all actors in our area.
Plans to honor Kirk’s life are in development and we will share details as soon as they are available. On behalf of his wife, Mariel, and his two children, we ask that you please respect the family’s need for privacy at this time. Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers and refrain from phone calls or visits at this time.
This is a devastating loss for his family as well as his SAG-AFTRA family. We were all so privileged to have had Kirk in our lives and within our community. He will be greatly missed.
