founder of the family owned jewelry company, Clyde Duneier Inc., passed away on Sunday, December 18, 2016, at age 88. Under Clyde's leadership, Clyde Duneier Inc. founded the Jewelers Charity Fund in 1983, which originally began as a fundraising effort for the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. Eventually, this effort led to the formation of the "Jewelers for Children" charity, which has donated more than $51 million to programs benefiting children. Clyde Duneier was also responsible for the formation of The Plumb Club, a unique coalition of leading jewelry manufacturers spanning all facets of the jewelry, diamond, and watch industries. In addition to his business achievements, Clyde was most proud of his accomplishments as a loving family man. He is survived by his wife of 65 years, Estelle, his sons, Marc, Dana, and Todd, daughters-in-law, Ivy, Debra, and Sweta, four grandchildren, Jamie, Danielle, Emily, and Jake, and three great- grandchildren, Amelia, Willow, and Wesley. Services will be held Thursday at 11am, at The Gardens of Boca Raton, in Boca Raton, Florida.

Rest In Peace Mr. Dunier. I have to say it was an honor to meet you and your family when I worked at your residence in Fort Lee,NJ. It was a pleasure to be your doorman. You and your family were so kind and generous to me words cannot describe how saddened I am by your passing. I'm sure God has a very special place in heaven for you for all the people you were kind to and charities you helped.

CLYDE was a kind, charitable and generous man. We had the good fortune of knowing him from the Jewelry Industry and later a friend for many years. His memory will live on forever in the hearts of those who loved him. RIP Clyde, you were a mensch and will be missed.

Many will miss Clyde. He was much more than a big-name in the jewelry industry. He was a person of integrity and a friend of many. He left a major mark.
