A memorial service and reception was held on February 7 from 2-4 pm at Solas Irish Pub, 710 Boylston Street, Boston, MA.
Drew Marek Koltys, 27, passed away unexpectedly in New York City on December 16, 2014.
Drew was born on February 11, 1987 in Hanover, New Hampshire. He grew up in the Bay area of California, attended the University of Richmond, and graduated from Northeastern University in Boston, with both a bachelor’s degree in Economics as well as an MBA degree. Drew proposed to Megan Shea on July 2, 2014 in Boston on a boat overlooking the office building where the two met through work years earlier.
Drew was an intelligent, considerate man who brightened people’s lives wherever he went. He was a skilled skier, golfer, equestrian, sailor, and rock climber. Recently, Drew had the experience of flying a plane and was completely taken with it. He was a fantastic cook, loved animals, had a great sense of humor, and there was a twinkle in his eyes whenever he smiled. He was loved more than he could ever imagine by everyone who had the joy of knowing him.
Drew is survived by his beloved mother Laurel Fisher, father Henry Koltys, grandmother, eleven aunts and uncles, and seven cousins.
Memorial donations may be made in Drew’s name to MSPCA-Angell. The MSPCA’s cause was very close to his heart as it was able to save the life of the Siberian Husky, Nymeria, that Drew and Megan adopted in Boston in January of 2014.
