All Ed Hanko’s parents wanted was for their son to achieve more than they did.

Hanko did just that, recently finishing a 29-year career with the FBI and retiring as the special agent in charge of the bureau’s Philadelphia field office, The Citizens Voice reports.

His dad was a coal miner. His mom worked in a dress factory,” The Citizens Voice wrote. “Neither finished high school and both had health problems.”

Hanko’s job in the Philadelphia office put him in charge of the eastern part of the state, including his hometown of Wilkes-Barre.

“For me, looking back, it’s quite an accomplishment to come from those humble beginnings,” Hanko said in a telephone interview with the Citizens Voice. “I got to appreciate what is was like to be at the low end of the economic scale. But it didn’t dissuade me.”
