In Memory of Charles F. Boyd

1936 - 2021

After 53 years as a teacher, coach, mentor, advisor and alumni ambassador, Charles Boyd leaves an indelible mark on the lives of nearly 5000 students, alumni and staff. 

He was one of the kindest, most compassionate, caring and inspiring people any one of us will ever meet. Every year, he reminded us that The People are Pickering. In reality, Charles Boyd was the personification of that belief. 

Mr. Boyd has been the heart, soul and light of Pickering College for over half a century. While we are saddened by the loss of our dear friend and teacher, we are all so much luckier to have had him in our lives. Charles Boyd upheld the mission and values of Pickering College, with his strength and commitment to make our community greater, better and more beautiful than he discovered it. 

We will never forget him. 

If you wish to make a donation in memory of Mr. Charles Boyd, it can be directed to sustaining the school’s outdoor education program at his beloved Blue & Silver Farm, which he bequeathed to Pickering College in 2013.
