Memories Timeline


  1. My condolences & prayers are with the family, especially his daughter Linda.
    It was a pleasure caring for Mr. Boyte during his short time at St. Joseph’s, and May he now Rest In Peace. ❤️

  2. We are so sad to learn of CG passing. He was our Sunday School teacher when we went to Pleasant Hill.
    He was a very good teacher. Praying for GOD’s comfort for the family.
    Sincere sympathy,
    Eddie and Vetres Livengood

  3. I am C.G.’s first cousin. My Mother was Jessie McKenzie Neal. I always had the highest admiration for C. G.

  4. I remember Mr. C. G. Boyte as a smart, kind, and thoughtful next-door neighbor. I remember him in his truck delivering the US Mail, and especially on the day that he handed me my letters and said with a huge grin, “Tomorrow you will have a new mail carrier, for tomorrow is the first day of my retirement.”

  5. I knew CG all my life. He was one of the sweetest Christian man I ever met. I know he and MS Ruby had a glad reunion day and they are now with each other for all eternity. Prayers to the family and friends.
