No-nonsense jurist laid to rest

Social Share

ATTORNEY AND JURIST Theodore Walcott, QC, was remembered as a stickler for time and a no-nonsense person, but someone who enjoyed cooking and loved his plants.

The tributes were made by his close friend, retired jurist Leroy Inniss, QC, and his sisters Catherine Lashley and Cheryl Holder at his service of thanksgiving at the Chapel of Coral Ridge Memorial Gardens yesterday.

Walcott, a former magistrate, coroner, acting judge and civil attorney, died September 6.

Justice Inniss, who spoke about Walcott’s life as a jurist, called him a fearless magistrate who was not afraid to dismiss a case, but who hated to think that “any member of the police force or anyone else were to cause a guilty person to go free”. (HLE)
