He was 70.

McCutchen and his wife, Ellie, opened their store, McCutchen Jewelers, in 1988.

He began his career with a large national chain and refined his skills during his tenure at Theodore Nye Jewelers, a high-end jewelry guild store in the Washington, DC, area.

Internment will take place in his home state of Oklahoma.

McCutchen is survived by his daughter, grandchildren, sisters, brothers and devoted friends. In lieu of flowers, any contributions may be sent to the American Lung Association or the American Cancer Society.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
