Mrs. Hawley and family: Please accept my condolences. I served under Chief Hawley in the '70s. Being young and completely immature, I fought his every attempt to make me grow up. A few months before I got out of the service, the Chief caught me with contraband on the ship. A lesser man would have taken this opportunity to exact revenge for all the grief I had given him. Instead, he told me he'd let me go if I promised to do something useful with my life. I promised. I would have promised anything! I’ve thought of that moment often over the years... dealing with my own immature teenager, or when I was unsure about giving someone another chance. Remembering the break Chief Hawley gave me often helped me make the right decision. The Chief probably never realized what an indelible mark he left on me. Its unfortunate that I never had the chance to tell him. He was a good man, and I’m sure he is missed by his family and friends. Fair winds and following seas, Chief.

Dear Hawley Family, Please accept my belated, but heartfelt condolences on the Chief's passing. I had the very good fortune to have worked for him on USS Independence from 1977-1978. Besides being an all around good person, he was a great leader, mentor and role model for us young sailors, and I am VERY grateful that he was there for us. He always took care of his men! Rest in Peace Shipmate!

RIP Gary. So sorry I was unable to reconnect with you. I always wanted to tell you how proud I was of you when you joined the Navy. God had other plans for us both in life. May your family find comfort in their memories of you. I think of you at the Veterans Celebrations that I attend. You will forever be a part of my childhood.
