What happened to him after the war? Did he stay in the Navy?

There is an Alvin Peyton Cluster shown living in Oregon age 93.

There is an Alvin P. Cluster listed in the Social Security Death Index who died on 8 March 2004 in Bend, Oregon. I did not find an obituary for him.

FROM THE CENTRAL OREGON NEWSPAPER, THE BULLETIN:
Dec. 29, 1918-March 8, 2004
Alvin P. Cluster of Bend died March 8 of complications from a fall. He was 85. A service was held.
Mr. Cluster was born Dec. 29, 1918, in Martinsburg, Mo. He was raised in Missouri and graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., in 1940. He was an instructor in the patrol torpedo boat program.
He served in the Navy during World War II in the South Pacific, where he became close friends with John F. Kennedy and led the rescue for Kennedy and his downed PT-109 crew in 1943. Mr. Cluster attained the rank of lieutenant commander before leaving the service in 1946 and he later campaigned for Kennedy during the 1960 presidential race.
Mr. Cluster worked in the aircraft industry and later with an executive recruitment firm in Los Angeles. He retired to Bend 20 years ago.
Survivors include his wife, Annella of Bend; two sons, Tom and Lou of Los Angeles; and a daughter, Sarah of Los Angeles
