San Francisco Community College District Police Department sergeant Darryl Lee Low, a father, husband and friend, died Oct. 27 of a heart attack in his Daly City home. Low died only two days after celebrating his 55th birthday.

Low was hired in 1983 by City College as a police officer working to keep the college safe at night. He was promoted to sergeant in 2003.

“I worked with him for about four years,” City College police officer Christian Smith said. “He was a generous guy, that sums it up. He would always take me out for dinner, he even sold me his IROC [Chevrolet Camaro] for cheap.”

A private funeral service for close family and friends was held at the Green Lawn Cemetery. A public event in his honor was held at the Ocean campus’ Pierre Coste Cafe on Nov. 7 for City College students, faculty or staff who wished to pay their respects.

In his spare time, Low liked playing the guitar and performed with his band in cities all over California. He had a passion for working with sports cars, riding motorcycles and playing billiards. He is survived by his wife Betty and their two children Donald and Melissa, who are students at City College.

A relief fund has been created in Sergeant Low’s remembrance. Donations can be made to the Darryl L. Low Relief Fund, ACCT #1371962 at the San Francisco Police Credit Union 2550 Irving Street, San Francisco, CA 94122.
