"Memories are precious they don't go away, we think of you always and not just today."

Date passed: 14th of May 2019

Funeral date: 4th of June 2019

“Memories are precious they don’t go away, we think of you always and not just today.”

Nigel was born on Monday 4th April 1966. He was a much loved son and brother.

He attended St. John’s school, Sandbach, Lawton Hall and Sandbach High School before going on to further education at Mid Cheshire college, where he studied catering.

Nigel was described by his mother and father, Mavis and Brian, as an intelligent, kind and quiet man. His brother Andrew will read a tribute to his brother at the funeral.

Nigel worked at the famous Drake’s Restaurant on the Fulham Road, serving guests such as the musicians Sting and Rod Stewart to name but a few! It’s true to say that he “cooked for the stars”.

Nigel has three very special daughters, whom he loved dearly, Tracy, Wendy and Vicki.

He liked going to pub quizzes, which he was quite good at. He also was a fan of Stoke City FC, he enjoyed going fishing, motorbike scrambling and the best nights he had were at the Limelight in Crewe before it closed down.

Nigel has been taken too soon, but has left an ocean of memories for his family and friends.

Nigel’s funeral will take place on Tuesday 4th June in the Crematorium Chapel, Crewe at 12.40pm, followed by cremation.

Donations in memory of Nigel will be gratefully received to go towards the treatment and research into Neuroblastoma.

For any further information please contact our funeral home on 01270 584447.

    Having not seen Nigel for a good few years my memories are from many years ago when Nigel was a mere boy. He was always cheerful and cheeky with a hint of mischievous intent lingering not too far away, he was a lovely boy.
    My thoughts are with Auntie Mavis and Uncle Brian and of course his brother Andrew. My deepest sympathies to Tracy and his other two daughters who I’m afraid I never met.
    His memory will live long.
    May he rest in Peace

    My sincere condolences to Aunty Mave, Peter, Brian, Andrew and his family for the early loss of Nigel. My memories of Nigel span his first 2 decades. Loads of fun and laughter, we dissolved a tube of fruit polos overnight in a glass to make fruit juice.. didn’t work! We also soaked a bag of plain crisps in vinegar to make salt n vinegar.. didn’t work either but we tried !! I will always remember Nigel as a happy, lovely, kind boy .. Rest in peace xx

    Nigel, what am I going to do for our shared holidays and a social companion? We have for many years together shared holidays to Italy, Spain, Portugal, inland waterways and our c-vans in Wales and East Coast. I will treasure forever so many happy times. However, its a very small consolation but thankfully your long standing mental health demons and your body are both now resting. Son, I will so miss you for the rest of my days, I do know we only borrow each other for a while in this world but in our case it has been far too short. You will be forever carried in my heart. Please now RIP my dear son. From Daddy Bry xxxx

    Nigel Parton, no longer with us – what can I say? It doesn’t sound real. It can’t be real. My happy memories of him are so strong, that a part of him will always be with me. He was best man at my wedding – the only man for the job.

    I remember Nige as a loyal friend, with a zest for life who would try anything. He had an incredible memory, intelligence and a sharp wit. With his natural style he was always cool and had his own look.

    I’ll never forget you Dude. It was a privilege to be your friend.

    My deepest condolences to Mavis, Brian, Andy and all family and friends at such a sad time.

    Nigel Parton, my brother and best friend. Growing up as kids we had so much fun without a care in the world. We both had great friends and did some crazy things together. You excelled in your vocation working at a top class restaurant in Chelsea and proud to tell my friends “our kid cooks for Rod Stewart and David Coverdale” to name but a few. We went to many rock, punk and new wave gigs all over the country c/w gelled hair and attire to match the act. I’ll never forget your sharp wit, fantastic memory, sense of humour and of course the many paths we shared throughout your very short life. God bless Nige xxxxx

    Nigel, us chefs are nomadic creatures, moving about from place to place carrying our knives and our whites, so it has been a long time since we saw each other. However moving to Drakes restaurant in London from sleepy Cheshire, as we both did, was quite a memorable experience. The term ‘work hard…play hard’ certainly applies to those wonderful days. Rest in peace matey, and get those Beef Wellingtons on the go !!!
