UPDATED: Scuba diver found dead in Aspy Bay

August 5, 2014

Lowe was diving alone in the Aspy Bay near Dingwall. He was reported missing to RCMP at 10 p.m., two hours overdue. His body was found at about 11:40 p.m., about 40 feet from his boat in water 12-15 feet deep. The boat was 900 feet from shore.

“He was out diving with buddies and had done two or three previous dives during the day,” said Const. Eric Latwaitis of the Baddeck RCMP. “He wanted to go for a last dive and went by himself.

“The water conditions and the weather wasn’t overly choppy or anything of concern.”

Lowe, who went by Craig, was a professional painter by trade who owned and operated Lowe Painting in Mississauga. He regularly appeared on the Holmes on Homes television show.

“(Sunday) I received tragic news that Craig Lowe, a good friend, died in an accident while pursuing his passion of scuba diving,” the show’s host, Mike Holmes, said on his Twitter page.

“Craig was a generous and talented man who was always willing to lend a hand. My heart goes out to his wife and his daughters, he will be missed,” Holmes added in another tweet.

RCMP, the local Coast Guard auxiliary, fishermen and volunteer fire departments searched where the man’s diving boat was anchored. Residents searched the nearby shoreline.

Latwaitis said Lowe’s death isn’t considered suspicious by RCMP. The diver’s equipment will be examined for mechanical malfunction, and the Nova Scotia Medical Examiner Service will complete an autopsy to determine a cause of death.

There was no new information released by police Monday. Their investigation is continuing.
