Mark Stolworthy

The family of a 33-year-old chef who died in a collision near Nantwich have paid tribute to him.

Mark Stolworthy (pictured) was driving his blue Suzuki Baleno along the B5074 Main Road from Church Minshull to Nantwich when it happened.

His car was in collision with a silver Mitsubishi Shogun travelling in the opposite direction.

Mark, from Sandbach, was taken to Leighton Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.

His parents, Norma and Andrew Stolwothy said: “Mark was a kind and thoughtful son, and although he was often shy on first meeting people, once he came to know you he was always ready to help anyone in need.

“Mark was one of the last pupils at Hassall Green Primary School which closed a year after he moved on to Sandbach Boys School.

“From there he went on to the South Cheshire College, Crewe where he trained as a chef and waiter.

“He very much enjoyed serving people in his work as a waiter in several of the best hotels throughout the country.

“We were always proud to have people tell us just how pleasantly he did his job when he had served them a meal.

“He was a loving son and will be greatly missed by us, as well as his younger brother Stephen (and his partner Rachael and their daughter Poppy), his elder sister Elaine and his girlfriend Lauren, and her children Keira and Harry.”

The accident happened at 4.27pm on Monday May 28.

Police are keen to speak to anyone with information, particularly the drivers of a black car and a silver car who were overtaken prior to the collision.

Anyone with information should contact PC Leah Leonard on 101 quoting incident number 728 of 28 May 2012.
