Bryan Whitby passes away

Bryan Whitby, founder of Whitby Morrison, sadly passed away peacefully at St Luke’s Hospice in Cheshire on Friday 01 July.

Bryan was one of the most well-known and respected characters of the Ice Cream industry having helped pioneer the shape of Mobiling since starting Bryan Whitby Engineering in 1962.

His development of the Direct Drive System in conjunction with Sid Cummins remains one the finest engineering developments to this day.  This most certainly revolutionised the shape of Mobiling Soft Ice Cream around the world.

Bryan’s life is really quite a story and next month’s newsletter will be dedicated to him.

This is an incredibly sad time for the Whitby Family and indeed the staff and many friends of Whitby Morrison.  We as a family are very grateful for all of the kind thoughts and wishes that we have received.

Arrangements for Bryan’s funeral are currently being finalised and will be announced in due course.
