Cleveland Joseph Guillot, Jr. “Cleve” “Mac” Born June 18, 1955. Cleve departed this life on Tuesday April 4, 2017. He was the beloved only son of the late Cleveland Joseph Guillot, Sr. and the late Dorothea “Pat” Casso Guillot.

Cleve attended and graduated from Isidore Newman School, attended Washington University in St. Louis, Mo. and earned a Master’s degree in Business Administration from Tulane University before joining the sales staff at Coleman E. Adler and Sons in 1982. Cleve was a long tenured, highly respected member of the staff. He earned a dual graduate gemologist certification in diamonds and color stones from the Gemological Institute of America in their New York office.

After Hurricane Katrina, Cleve managed Waldhorn and Adler, an Adler entity specializing in antique furniture and jewelry. He retired from Adler’s in 2012 to care for his aging parents, and did so until their deaths in 2010 and 2016.

Mr. Guillot was a longtime resident of the French Quarter. He especially enjoyed traveling the world, and dining out, both in the company of friends and family. Philanthropic causes close to his heart were Project Lazarus, The New Orleans Museum of Art, The Preservation Resource Center, The New Orleans Ballet Association, The Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, The Hermann-Grima–Gallier Historic Houses, and The Friends of the Vieux-Carre.

Survivors include Mrs. Sandra Caperino (Paul), Mr. Alcine Lacour, and Mrs. Yvette Lacour Wattigney (Huey). His many loving friends will dearly miss him.

A memorial service is being planned for Mid-June.
