    When I was cutting my teeth as a reporter, I was briefly assigned the court beat and came to admire his deep knowledge, and professionalism with which he approached his job, as he was also in a similar boat as I. But his was a high standard to emulate. I hold his family in my thoughts. Charles your contribution to justice was outstanding!

I do hope and pray, that his Family and loved ones, can be in a state of serenity, knowing that his enormous responsibility, did not contribute in anyway to his untimely passing, at such a young age. ” Time may cut away the edge from grief, but memories will turn back every leaf. May he sleep on to an endless World.

    While working at a financial institution I met Mr Charles Leacock. Oh what a nice personality he had. The smile. Condolences from myself and family to his family and friends. May he rest in Peace and Rise in Glory.
