Casper Fire Engine 6 led a procession for Capt. Scott Low on Saturday from his celebration of life at Faith Assembly of God Church to the Yellowstone Garage.
Low died June 19 after an off-duty accident. He was a pillar of the department, Fire Chief Tom Solberg told the Star-Tribune earlier this month. Low worked for Casper Fire-EMS for 22 years and as a captain for Engine 6 of the Paradise Valley station.
Saturday’s procession passed beneath a large American flag atop the local fire department’s ladder truck at Casper Fire-EMS Fire Station 1 in downtown Casper.
Before his time in Casper, Low spent three years as a wildland firefighter for the California Department of Forestry. He decided to become a firefighter after he was assigned to a fire camp in the California Conservation Corps. He worked for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection after earning his bachelor of science degree from California State University, Chico, according to his obituary.
“While working at stations throughout Butte County, Scott learned the skills of what became his favorite aspect of firefighting: wildland-urban interface,” his obituary states.
With Casper Fire-EMS, he was a longtime member of the CFD safety committee and volunteered for the last decade with the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation Everyone Goes Home program. He was the EGH Region 8 representative and traveled Wyoming advocating for firefighter safety, according to his obituary.
He’s survived by his wife, Anne, and brother, Brad, of Cody along with other family members.
Low is remembered as outdoorsman and fly fisherman, the statement said, whose “presence, laughter and sense of humor will be dearly missed by his fellow firefighters and friends.”
