Obituary for HOMER 'ED' CHANEY
It is with deep sadness that we must inform everyone of the passing of Federal Air Marshal, Homer 'Ed' Chaney. Ed died suddenly from a blood clot on December 13, 2015 at home in Montana. Ed began his distinguished career with the Federal Air Marshal Service in 2002 at the Detroit Field Office. Ed flew countless international and domestic missions, and exemplified leadership. In 2010, Ed took a position at the Joint Coordination Center (JCC) in Washington, DC. Ever the professional, Ed found ways to find fulfillment in his career while helping others achieve their goals. While serving the needs of the Air Marshal Service at the JCC, Ed was quickly identified as a leader and was asked often to serve in acting leadership roles. Knowing these roles were critical to his colleague's professional advancement, Ed repeatedly suggested that the opportunities be given to others who would benefit more from them. Ed was a dedicated and selfless FAM who leaves behind a legacy of commitment and excellence. Prior to joining the Federal Air Marshal Service, Ed was an Officer in the Norfolk Airport Police. He served there from 1989 to 2002, rising through the ranks from patrol officer to Police Lieutenant. Ed was a well-respected and integral member of that department, and his leadership and service were renowned and celebrated. Ed could easily turn any situation into a learning opportunity. It is easy to understand how Ed had served as the Assistant Commandant of the prestigious Chamberlain Hunt Military Academy in Port Gibson, MS prior to joining the Norfolk Airport Police Department. Ed was a great man with a huge heart who positively impacted many lives. He will truly be missed! Ed is survived by Frank Louis Ryland Jr., his sister Kathy Bradburn, his niece Dianne Haines and her husband Wayne Haines, and his great nephew Cody Haines. Please keep Ed's family in your prayers during this difficult time.
