      Capt. John J. Cashman Jr., USN (Ret.) was well known as a civil engineer in Boston and the Northeast area. Capt. Cashman was projects engineer supervising construction of the northern end of the Garden State Parkway in New Jersey and took part in the reconstruction of the Boston Army Base. Capt.

In this post, he supervised contracts involving design and construction of federal buildings, including the new Senate office building. He was associated with the firm of Fay Spofford and Thorndike as a projects engineer. He graduated from Milton High School, Chauncy Hall School and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

      Before retirement, he was chief of the engineering division, Directorate of Civil Engineering, in the Air Force Eastern Test Range, where he coordinated with senior engineers of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, (NASA), the Army Corps of Engineers, and the Facilities Engineering Command of the Navy.

      In World War II, Capt. Cashman was civil engineering officer supervising harbor construction on Guam and at Pearl Harbor, and later was a Navy Seabee Batallion commander in the Southwest Pacific and Japan.
