John Butterfield Obituary
October 18, 1947 - November 22, 2017 Dapper John Butterfield passed away suddenly at his home in Studio City at the age of 70. A graduate of Michigan State University, John followed his love of fashion and fine men's clothing to New York before settling in Los Angeles. He enjoyed a 20-year career at Carroll & Co. in Beverly Hills where he was responsible for clothing some of the city's best dressed men. Never without a hat or his signature Dunhill pipe, John was the epitome of sartorial elegance. He was beloved by his customers, fellow employees and every pipe shop, cheese counter and barista in Beverly Hills. John's true love in his life was his family. He leaves behind his son Larry and daughter Sara (Mathieu); grandchildren Courtney, Justin, Nicolas and Isabelle; brother Ernie Cates (Susan) and his life companion Cherry Hepburn. Funeral services will be private with a memorial planned at a later date. A true gentlemen in every sense of the word.
