It is with sadness that I have to inform you of the death on the 2nd July 2023, in hospital, of ex PC 1181 Geoffrey Stanley LEADBETTER, 85 years. His next of kin is his wife, Mrs Susanne Leadbetter. Geoff suffered with COPD, fell and broke some ribs, leading to him being in Hospital where he sadly died from pneumonia.
Geoff did his National Service in 1959, after which he joined Manchester Police but couldn’t settle, so he rejoined the RAF serving 22 years. In 1979 he joined Derbyshire Police, serving in Alfreton and Ripley, until his retirement in about 1988.
His funeral has already taken place on the 25th July 2023.
