CHILTON--John B. The Estee Lauder Companies and the Lauder family are deeply saddened by the passing of our beloved former colleague and dear friend, John Chilton. John was an outstanding leader whose drive and energy garnered loyalty and affection from all those who had the pleasure of working with him. John spent almost three decades with our Company before his retirement in 2000. His distinguished career began in 1973 and he rose through the ranks of Operations to eventually become Senior Vice President of Global Operations. John was a true inspiration to all who knew him. Our thoughts are with his children Steven Chilton and Justine Chilton Robinson and with her husband, Ian as well as John's good friend, Barbara Shirk. John will be sorely missed but his memory will continue to live on with his family, many friends and colleagues. A funeral viewing will be held at Fairchild Sons, 1570 Northern Blvd., Manhasset, NY, on Tuesday, January 12, 1-3pm and 5-8pm, and short service at 7:15pm. For further info www.fairchildsons.com. In lieu of flowers, the family wishes donations be made to pancreatic cancer research in the name of John B. Chilton at: North Shore - LIJ Health System Foundation, 125 Community Drive, Great Neck, NY 11021.
