  • To the Caulfield Family,
    My Condolences on the passing of Mr Caulfield.
    Prayers that the many memories will live with you forever!
    My memories are if my father talking of Mr Caulfield as he taught with him at Norwich Tech and of Mrs. who I believe was the School Nurse at the time. They both were dear to my father Phil Skinner.
    May God Bless you

  • My Thoughts and Prayers go out to Mr. Caulfield’s family during this very difficult time. I graduated from Norwich Technical High School in 1961 and played on the baseball & basketball teams that Mr. Caulfield coached.

    Mr. Caulfield was an outstanding coach and he knew as much about the game of baseball as did any Major League manager. He had a way of teaching his players the right way to do things and inspiring his players to achieve a level of skill far beyond their natural talents. More importantly he was the best role model and mentor that any teenager could have ever asked for. I can only hope that he realized how many of his students and players he impacted in a very, very positive way.

    I was lucky enough to work summer’s in the late 50’s & early 60’s in the Pro’s shop at The Norwich Golf Course and so I was able to enjoy seeing Mr. Caulfield all summer when he first took up the game of golf and became a member at the club– in just a few months he was consistently breaking 80.

    In the summer evenings Mr. Caulfield played baseball in the Norwich Men’s Baseball League which was comprised of the best players in eastern CT and included many former AAA players. My brothers and I would go to watch all of his teams’ games. He was an outstanding catcher and made some unbelievable catches of foul balls – sometimes diving and landing flat on his stomach and sometimes ended up running into a dugout to make the catch – but he always hung onto the ball. No runner’s dared attempting stealing second base on his strong and accurate arm.

    I’ve said much about Mr. Caulfield’s athletic ability but his real legacy is that he was a gentleman, a leader, and just a really great guy, and a good human being.

    I lost track of Mr. Caulfield over the years but the fond memories of him as a teacher, coach, and player were, and are still, in my memory often.
