Mark Whitcher (17 Aug 1968 – 5 Sept 2015)
PHC is saddened to report the death of Mark Whitcher. Mark spent the best part of his career working in the private hire industry – starting out as an insurance broker before spotting an opportunity and branching out by himself to launch a minicab car hire firm four years ago.
With his partner of over 25 years Justine, Mark worked hard to get the hire firm off the ground, turning it into a thriving and respected business. Sadly, having battled with multiple sclerosis for the past 15 years, Mark fell ill last month, and despite a spirited battle he finally succumbed to his illness.
He leaves behind Justine – the love of his life – and daughter Jodie, who he doted on.
A perennial joker with a sharp sense of humour, Mark was one of life’s genuine good guys. Much loved and admired, he will be sorely missed by all who knew him. Rest in peace mate.
