Thomas John Low passed away unexpectedly on Friday, August 2, 2019, at the age of 60. Tom was a native of Los Angeles, CA and was fulfilling his dream of retirement in Folsom LA with his wife of 21 years, Kathy Keller Low.  He is survived by Kathy; his children Jeff, Kelly and Chris Edwards; grandchildren Lauren (Korey), Madeline (Brant), Halie (Erick), Emma, Cameron, Dean, Christopher, Grace, Sam, Sabian, Nathaniel, and great granddaughter McKenzie. He also leaves behind his brothers and sisters Tami Brooks (Clyde), Steve (Jan), Jim, Michael and Jennifer Low and brothers-in-law Bill and Tom Keller, as well as a host of nieces and nephews.  Tom was preceded in death by his parents, Nancy and John Low, mother/father-in-law Fred and Laura Lee Keller; and great granddaughter Everly.  Tom grew up in Los Angeles and, after graduation from Santa Barbara City College’s Marine Diving Technology School, made his way to the Gulf coast to pursue a career in commercial diving, eventually working in the underwater submersible division of SubSea International until 2003, when he created his own company, Ocean Robotics. Tom traveled worldwide extensively during his career, and continued to enjoy his worldwide travels with Kathy as well as with friends.  Tom lived larger than life, and always continued to pursue knowledge and participate in a variety of interests, including blacksmithing, beekeeping, bird watching, gardening and keeping up with Kathy’s ongoing project lists. He was president of the Gulf Coast Blacksmith Association and a member of A.U. Peterson Masonic Lodge No. 455 in Folsom.  Tom greatly enjoyed his friends and family, especially spending time and continuing antics with his grandchildren and he was their own special Papa Tom.  Relatives and friends of Tom’s family are invited to attend his Funeral Services at Bagnell and Son Funeral Home, 75212 Lee Road, Covington LA on Saturday, August 10, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. Visitation hours are from 9:30 am until service time.  Please leave the coat and tie at home if you wish; Tom would want you to be comfortable and, in fact, would have worn his oldest, stained t-shirt and raggedy jeans if Kathy would’ve let him!
