Hundreds pay tribute to Jeff Whitaker

Hundreds of family, friends, employees and colleagues from the catering industry filled Oundle School’s Great Hall on Thursday to celebrate the life of Whitco founder Jeff Whitaker, who died in January from Motor Neurone Disease (MND) after a short illness.

Among those paying tribute were Jeff’s cousin and former MP Phil Sawford, cousin Sebastian La Porta, David Grundy of Hobart, Whitco MD Tony Butler, catering consultant Tony Bannell, Oundle butcher and friend Martin Trendall, and close friend Richard Kirk.

They all spoke of Jeff’s generosity, loyalty, sociability, humour and courage in the face of his illness. Appropriately, the service was followed by generous hospitality at a reception in the school’s Great Hall.

A collection for Jeff’s Way, the fund set up to support young people, was generously supported.

Jeff’s Way supports three causes that were close to Jeff’s Heart: the catering faculty at Hull College where Jeff trained as a chef, the Sea Cadets where he developed his love of the sea and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
