Anthony Bernard "Bub" Cashman

Jacksonville, FL - Anthony Bernard "Bub" Cashman, aged 79, passed away on October 15, 2017, in Jacksonville, Florida, after a brief illness. Bub was born on September 8, 1938 in Bayonne, N.J., where he grew up. He attended high school at St. Peter's Prep in Jersey City. In 1960, Bub earned his B.A. in Economics from Boston College. He married Carolyn "Jackie" Cannella of Bayonne in 1962, and shortly thereafter, the two moved to Neptune, where they raised their family and lived for more than 40 years.

Bub owned and operated Keenan-Cashman Company, a pipe and valve distributorship in Bayonne before working as an account representative for Dresser Industrial Valve for more than 25 years. Bub served as Captain and President of the Hamilton First Aid and was a long-time parishioner of Holy Innocents Church in Neptune. He was a passionate golfer and a member of Spring Lake Golf Club for almost 50 years. He also volunteered at the Foodbank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties before retiring with Jackie to The Villages, Florida in 2012, where he continued volunteering with The Villages Hospital Auxiliary.

Bub was pre-deceased by his son, Michael (1988), and he is survived by his wife of 55 years, Jackie, his son Anthony B., III, Ph.D., his daughter-in-law Stephanie Yuhl, Ph.D., and 3 grandchildren, Julia (18), Emmett (16), and Phineas (13). Bub was a generous husband, father, and grandfather, and he had a warmth and affability that always left friends and strangers alike feeling that they had just been with an all-around nice guy. It seemed fitting for most people, even younger ones, to call him by his familiar nickname, Bub, and he welcomed those personal connections.

A remembrance in the form of a donation can be made to Fulfill (formerly the Foodbank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties) at http://fulfillnj.org or 732-918-2600.
