We are saddened to report the passing of GRIVA Board member Drew Hogwood. Drew was an enthusiastic and skilled genealogist, a key player in our society’s activities, and a friend to all our membership. He will be sorely missed.
HOGWOOD, Andrew W. Jr., 66, passed away on August 12, 2014 after four years of battling prostate cancer. Drew’s warm heart, humorous nature and positive view of life will be greatly missed by everyone he touched. He is survived by his wife, Luz Maria; sons, Andy (wife, Mary; granddaughter, Alex) and Nick. Drew was born in Washington, D.C. and he was raised in Arlington, Va. He graduated from William & Mary in 1970, earned a master’s degree from George Washington University and was a commercial banking major at Southern Methodist University. He worked for the Federal Reserve Bank in Washington, D.C. and Dallas. In 1991, Drew and his family returned to his beloved Virginia, where he was senior vice president of NationsBank. He retired as vice president and community development manager from SunTrust in 2012. During his career, Drew served on numerous boards and advisory councils, and authored journal articles and books on bank regulation. He was an avid genealogist, photographer, artist, traveler, and lover of old cars and motorcycles. He was an active parishioner of St. Mary’s Catholic Church, where a Memorial Mass will be held on Saturday, August 16, at 10 a.m. In lieu of flowers, he wished for donations to be made in his honor to St. Mary’s.
