Officer Donald Foreman, fifty-three, a captain’s clerk at the Holland Tunnel, was ordered to report to Tower Two (South Tower) Command Center on September 11th. His companion of seventeen years, Cheryl Cooper-Foreman, said his habit was to let his family know he was okay. That call was the last time they spoke. Foreman grew up in Richmond Hills, Queens. He had six brothers and three sisters. He joined the Port Authority Police Department in 1971 after working for five years as a postal worker. Early in his career he worked as a traffic officer. He spent many of his years at the Port Authority working as a captain’s clerk for fifteen consecutive captains. Officer Foreman was a vegetarian and an avid Star Trek fan; he also coached basketball and was the director of Immaculate Conception School’s sports program. He volunteered at a homeless shelter near the Holland Tunnel along with his colleagues and friends Walter McNeil and Nathaniel Webb. He has one son, Marcus, and two stepdaughters, Cacia and Tia Walker.
