He played a very important role in my teenage years at the youth center and helping me land my first job as a Lifeguard at the City pool. He was a great guy and I will miss him.

"Mr. Callender"as we knew and respected you by name. Big brother, surogate dad,teacher and role model is how we knew and respected you as a a person who made a difference in our lives. From a safe haven away from home to hosting & promoting our great high school peer bands like Scott Kennedy, Arthur Lyons, Tim Welch & Robert (?) you made it all happen . To bad there aren't more like you but we just thank your family for sharing you with us. RIP--Rick Smith class of '63

Wow, ditto to everything said in previous messages. Cal, as I called him was a huge part of my life,I was dropped off downtown before the Y.C. was open. I spend just about every night of my high school evenings at the Y.C. and met many life long friends. It was my family. Cal kept us busy, stuffing envelopes, cracking eggs for the Lyons Club breakfasts, Many wonderful memories! I lost a piece of my heart when I heard he had passed, I was hoping for one last hug. My condolences to his family.

Roy Callender's impact on the youth of Palm Springs was immense. He taught us to be leaders through the Friday Nighters and Tridents, groups in which we planned dances, fund raisers, trips, and shared the responsibilities of running those events. He opened a world of trips and conferences to us that never would have been available without his influence! He may have had an easy-going image, but he always knew what was going on with all of us! Callender, you will always be an integral part of the most important "growing up" years of an entire generation of Palm Springs.
