Hatkoff, Drew Anthony TALLAPOOSA, Ga. Drew Anthony (formerly "Tony") Hatkoff, 65 years of age, passed away unexpectedly in Tallapoosa, Ga. on June 26, 2018, after a long illness. Born in Albany, he graduated from Albany High School in 1970. He then received his B.A. at UCLA where he found his first passion, photography. He returned to the Capital Region, completing two master's degrees from The College of Saint Rose. He then went into the travel business, owning Seven Sixty Travel. After extensive traveling, he found his paradise in Georgia where he loved living surrounded by nature. He was drawn to this special land (which was part of the Trail of Tears) because of its spiritual significance and beauty. He built a banquet house, which he operated for many years. His compassion and love for animals was abounding. He rescued and took care of many animals including dogs, cats, and even a pet bull! Drew was also a musician and loved playing the drums to his favorite songs. His spirit will remain for eternity and his love and memories will be with us forever. Predeceased by his parents, the late Mike Hatkoff and the late Elaine Kirsch. Surviving family members include his son, Alan Hatkoff, and granddaughter Mia Hatkoff of the Dominican Republic; his sister Terri (Hatkoff) Zimmerman of Saratoga Springs; his brother, Reed Hatkoff of Phoenix, Ariz.; his nephew, Evan Zimmerman of Saratoga Springs; and his niece, Lexi Zimmerman of Scottsdale, Ariz.
