Such talent will be sorely missed

December 5, 2014

Dear Sir,

I would like to convey my deepest sympathy to all who are connected with The Royal Gazette. You must all be absolutely devastated about the loss of Peter Woolcock.

He was probably the loveliest man I had ever met.His talent will be sorely missed by everyone. He was particularly good to me with all the cartoons which included me. I loved his great sense of humour which was always obvious.

He was a very sensitive person and did not wish to hurt anyone in his caricature of them. He was never vicious or malicious as one often sees in the cartoons in the UK and the US.

His observation of Bermuda's politics, culture and social nature was acute. Bermuda has been so fortunate to have had the pleasure of his talent for so many years.

My condolence is also extended to his lovely daughter whom I know will feel quite lost without his presence.

Kind regards,


Respect: In this file photograph, The Royal Gazette cartoonist Peter Woolcock (left) and former Transport Minister Dr Clarence (Tessi) Terceira exchanged copies of their new books “Woppened 25 – A Quarter Century” and “Tessi's Highway”. Dr Terceira was often in Mr Woolcock's political cartoons while in office and many are featured “Tessi's Highway”
