Reason for travel: hiking trip
William Joseph Cashman, 60, of West New York, New Jersey, was traveling aboard Flight 93 with long-time friend Patrick Joseph Driscoll to go hiking in Yosemite National Park. Cashman served as a paratrooper in the U.S. Army 101st Airborne Division, studied martial arts, and taught night school classes to apprentice ironworkers. Cashman was proud of the fact that during his forty years with Ironworkers Local 46, he helped to construct the World Trade Center. The tall, wiry native New Yorker loved spending time outdoors, and often hiked in parks near his home, as well as out West. He is survived by his wife of thirty-one years.
