I can't begin to describe my affection for Cal Boyd and how much I loved running track under his direction. I'll never forget the St. C relays when I first hurdled, and in a 4 man relay, without hardly any preparation at all. My parents and many others were in the stands. I bowled over the first 2 hurdles,at a standstill pushed over the 3rd, and 3 stepped the remaining. I was hiding behind the grandstands in humiliation when Coach Boyd came up to me incredibly excited that I had 3 stepped the...

Cal was a great mentor and track coach. St. Christophers was blessed to have had such an inspiring teacher and coach that was deicated to their students. He will be sorely missed by all the St. Chris family.

Our prayers and love go out to Cal's family at this time. From being a "cottage master" at STC in the 60s until now Cal has always been a friend and he will be missed by many.Doc Frank Class '64

Mr. Boyd was a phenomenal math teacher and track coach who had a tremendous impact on me while at St.C. He molded many a youngster into fine men from his time in the classroom, on the track, and during Driver's ed :) Condolences to his family!

Coach, we will miss you. Cal was a wonderful friend and coach. A real mentor who took you under his wings and patiently helped you succeed. Under his tutelage, I strived to highjump the magical 6'. Although I missed the goal by 1/2", I learned a lot in the training. God bless his family. St.C. '65

Mr. Boyd was a scholar and a gentleman. He represented all that was true and noble at St. Christopher's School, and we all miss him.

The Lindsey family would like Mr. Boyd's family know that we are in constant prayer for them in this hour of their loss.

Cal was one of my first and foremost mentors, both in the classroom and on the track - he recognized a running talent that I did not know I had and at a very early age. He nurtured that talent in a patient and caring way despite my immaturity. The combination of Cal Boyd and Bruce Nystrom as professionals and wonderful human beings cannot be understated by those of us whose lives they touched along the way - I know Bruce is hurting just as we all are. My thoughts and prayers go out to Mrs...

Mr. Boyd was a fantastic gentleman. I always appreciated his personality and good humor. He positively impacted my life and I will never forget that. To his family I wish my sincere condolences. Manoli
