This departure was confirmed through social media posts made by Twitter users who pour out tributes, and condolences to the family of the deceased.
We celebrate the legacy of Justice Hilarion L. Aquino, a distinguished jurist and public servant who served in the government with utmost competence, dedication, and integrity. I had the privilege of serving under Justice Larry at the Legal Education Board which he chaired. Justice Larry was the pioneer chair of the LEB and ably steered it through its challenging formative years. I remember Justice Larry with so much fondness since he took the time to mentor and guide me when I was new at the LEB. He was never a domineering chair and took into due consideration the views of all members before coming up with a decision. I particularly admired his keen grasp of procedural law which would put to shame lawyers and academics half his age. I remember one time, he enlightened me on a nuanced point of civil procedure. A man of unquestioned integrity, he led by the force of his character. While firm in enforcing the LEB Rules, he was also sensitive to the challenges faced by law schools and always heard them out. You have passed on Justice Larry but your legacy will last for a very long time. Requiescat in pace.
Our prayers and deepest condolences to Fr. Ranhilio Callangan Aquino, Judge Jet Aquino, the family, and friends of Court of Appeals Justice (ret.) Hilarion L. Aquino, first chair of the Legal Education Board, who passed away today.
Justice Aquino has inspired thousands of lawyers through his books, decisions, and lectures.
He will always be honored and remembered in the Philippine legal firmament.
We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
