served on active duty with the U.S. NAVY from 1976 to 1980. A Navy shipmate from Pearl Harbor transferred back stateside soon after I did in 1979. I understood he went to Norfolk, Va. I went to San Diego.
I learned some years later that he and another sailor were killed in a shipyard crane accident when the crane basket they were working from broke, causing them to fall to the pier below. This is supposed to have taken place sometime in 1983. My friend's name was Kurt Jaeger BM1.
Is there a way I can find the story on this? I figured the Navy Times would have printed the story.

Good idea they may have a Facebook page.

Try this and plug in the details you know. The last time I used the site it did show "deceased" servicemen.

I'm not seeing Key West, just Orlando, FL Naval Training Center

Look in the main entry, you may see a sub group that may have it US Navy Recruit Training Center [RTC] Photo-

I personally spoke to someone at the military history center a year or so back and they were able to confirm the information we needed. That is another source.

I found this site as well, maybe it's a common name?

I'd contact the Intrepid in NYC. They have all kinds of navy/army names, stories, artifacts, etc. Who knows, maybe your name is somewhere in the museum!
