In Memoriam Rufus Boyett 4/29/2024  
Dear Norwich Family Member,

It is with deep regret that I inform you of the death of Rufus Boyett, Class of 1975. Rufus was a legendary Norwich rugby coach and impacted the lives of countless Norwich ruggers and friends. In the fall of 2021, the newly constructed Rugby Clubhouse was named in his honor - The Boyett-Inram-Clark Rugby Clubhouse.

Rufus, 88, of Portsmouth, NH passed away on April 23, 2024.

A private memorial service will be held in Trinidad in November for the family. The family is working with Norwich University and friends to coordinate memorials on future dates to honor Rufus as he wished, with a toast and a good meal.
