OBITUARY

Tom Idowu

December 25, 1997April 29, 2020

Toluwani "Tom" was a Dean’s list senior at Florida State University where he was earning a double major in creative writing and psychology. Due to his sudden passing, he has been awarded a Florida State University memorial degree. Tom was employed by the university as a student consultant, liaising between faculty and students to assist in learning strategies to ensure academic success in subject areas. He was also a member of FSU’s Pi Kappa Alpha. Tom’s foundational years included the achievement of regional finalist in the Scripps National Spelling Bee Championship, a black belt Taekwondo, and Congressional awards for his contribution to the arts and student government in high school.

Born on Christmas Day in 1997, Tom had an active faith and belief in Jesus Christ, which was reflected in his dedication to seek God first through morning devotions and the genuine interest he took in the spiritual lives of the people he cared about. Tom often prayed for the people he loved and had a hands-on approach in practicing his faith through Bible Studies, serving the local community, and his church. Tom participated in Campus Crusade for Christ at FSU and was a well-known member of Downtown Community Church and Westwood Church in Tallahassee, Florida.

Tom had many interests and passions—composing music, nature photography, art, working out, and just having a good time eating and hanging out with friends, or enjoying online Xbox games. He lived life to the fullest. His creativity, kind heart, and friendliness will be missed by all those whose lives he touched.

Tom is survived by his father, Toks; mother, Cathy; younger brother, Rey; and younger sister, Oyinda; maternal grandmother and paternal grandfather, as well as many uncles, aunts, and cousins in the Idowu and Iyamu families.

My heart goes out to Tom's family at the remembrance of him. My family and I had the pleasure of hosting this young, friendly and lively lad in January of this year. He came with his three other friends and put up in our house for about 3 days.

To say he was friendly, open, free and burstling with life will be an understatement. He made relating with him very easy, and shared some of his ongoing life situation and challenges with me. I had the opportunity and pleasure of praying with him and his friends, and sent my love wishes to his mom through him at their departure.

I know this is a hard time for everyone especially his family; our consolations lies in the fact that he knew the Lord, and there's hope of seeing him again later on.

May God continue to grant the comfort and fortitude to bear the loss in Jesus mighty name 🙏

There’s not a single bad thing I could ever say about Tom. What a role model and ray of sunshine. Always making sure to uplift those around him. Always willing to have a deep talk with you. His positivity and sense of humor will always stick with me. This man knew he was living for God and proudly showed it. Tom, I genuinely wish to be like you when I grow up. I love you bro. Rest easy.
