After he retired from the Navy as a Master Chief, he worked at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard as Transportation Director. Unfortunately, he died in 1987, at age 57, from the pervasive effects of mesothelioma/asbestosis. 
His first ship assignment was USS Boxer, CV/CVA 21, and he was recognized and decorated for saving the lives of several shipmates during a fire on 6 August 1952. He was promoted from AB3 to AB1 and could pretty much write his own ticket for the balance of his career. 
Edward M. Hawley, was a Plank Owner and in 1957 was an AB1. He retired in 1977 as a Master Chief.

He was a good guy, a great father and true patriot. He is sorely missed.
