Other Comments:
He turned down opportunities for  promotion to Vice Admiral as a gesture to his wife, Elizabeth, who had bouts of cancer and from whom he endured long separations while on  assignment. 
             
He retired from the Navy in 1973 as commander of the Caribbean Sea frontier and commandant of the 10th Naval District, based in Puerto Rico.
