Gary William Low 1949 – 2018

Gary William Low, 69, passed away unexpectedly while enjoying his lifelong hobby at Auburn Golf Course on November 16, 2018. The cause of death was cardiac arrest. Gary leaves his mother Betty Low; wife of 47 years, Cathy; daughters Amy Driscoll/ son-in-law Mike; Angela Low; Jessica Low; Sisters Karen Barnard, Bette Moran, Barb Barnard; Brothers Greg Low, Fritz Low, Brian Low; Grandchildren Isaiah Driscoll, Titus Driscoll, Jeremiah Driscoll and Olivia Driscoll.

Gary graduated from Highline High School and received an AA Degree from Highline Community College, BA in business administration from the UW & MBA from the University of Puget Sound; and a Certificate in management accounting. He proudly served in the U.S. Army National Guard. He worked as a controller for several businesses in the greater Seattle area. He honed his career as a member of the National Association of Accountants and The Institute of Management Accountants.

A supportive father and mentor for many, Gary served as a coach for the St. Francis girls’ basketball team and Pony League baseball. He was active throughout his life enjoying tennis, golf and working out at the gym. He was an avid Husky football fan and loved tending to his large yard and garden where he fought off raccoons and moles; while nurturing hundreds of hummingbirds that feasted from his many feeders.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal. Love leaves a memory no one can steal. We will miss you Gary, dad, pa, and love you always.

A private celebration of Gary Low’s life will take place on Sunday, Dec. 9, 2018.
