Army Sp/4 Harold E. Cashman Jr., 23, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harold E. Cashman Sr., of 337 Corinthian ave., Hatboro.
Sp/4 Cashman, a paratrooper, needed six credits to graduate from Delaware Valley College of Science and Agriculture in Doylestown. He wanted to become an ornamental horticulturist.
"He never complained about the Army or even the food," his mother said. His father said his son was due for rest and relaxation from combat at the end of February. He is also survived by a sister, Mrs. Judith Ann Cooper.

I did not know, Harold, but he is buried near my parents, at Whitemarsh, Memorial Cemetary, in Prospectville, PA. and I have adopted him, as the soldier I honor, each Memorial Day. Along, with a Marine killed, in Beirut in 1983, their graves are cleaned up and decorated, each year.

My friend Eddie
Eddie, It has been oh so many years since we played baseball and football together and competed for the same girl friend. Two innocent kids without a care in the world - neither of us suspecting what fate had in store for us. By chance, I joined the Air Force with Ed Black and you joined the Marines. I just retired and you never saw your 21st birthday - not to worry I celebrated enough for the two of us !!. We had our 40th class reunion last year and you were remembered in hushed tones. Last year our high school was torn down and Lollar Academy has long been the Boro Hall. There are so many things to say but I'm sure you know them already as you look down on us from above. Thanks Eddie for being a friend. Marshall

  Uncle Eddie, I Miss You, I Barely Met You
Posted for: HAROLD EDWARD CASHMAN JR:
My Uncle Eddie was killed in action when I was a year old. He was my Mothers only brother and I know how hard it was on our whole family. Even now I cry for him, I wish he were here. I was brought up listening to stories about what a bright, sensative, and funny young man he was. I have stood in front of the frame holding his medals on the wall next to his picture in my Granparents house so many times I can see exactly his face frozen in time. I can't imnagine the pain of losing a child, or a brother. My Grandparents are gone now, my mother will have the medals on her wall and every time I go home I will stand in front of his picture and wonder what the world missed out on. I am doing my best to remember him, my wife and I are naming a child after him, and I am hoping beyond hope, that there will be no wars to worry about when he grows to manhood. If there is anybody out there that knew my uncle, please send me a note.
