Gene Chevalier

Chevalier, Eugene George (“Gene”)August 5, 1930 – June 3, 2015

It is with sadness but also with thankfulness for a beautiful life and a peaceful death that we announce the sudden passing of Gene, at home. He will be remembered with much love by his wife of 54 years, Zee (Deslauriers), and his daughters and their spouses: Anna-Marie and Doug Pollok, Jacqueline Chevalier and Edward Bebee, Alison and Stan Dybwad, Carol and Cameron Baird, and Jeanine and Joe Sallos. Gene was a loving grandfather to ten grandchildren and their families: Dawna Pollok, Matthew and Jacqui Dybwad (Lauren, Jeremy), Scott Dybwad, Jessica and Neil Johnson (Morgan, Andrew, Emelie), Matt Baird, Colin Baird, Katie and Joseph Rozario, Joey Sallos, Daniel Sallos and Lizzy Sallos, and uncle to many nieces and nephews. He is survived by his two brothers, Don (Vi) and Ted (Jo), and predeceased by his sister Gladys Wallsmith and brother-in-law Ray Wallsmith. Gene was born in New Westminster, B.C. and grew up in Port Moody, B.C. where he lived until 1988, after which he and Zee resided in Maple Ridge, B.C. until 2003, when they settled in Clinton, B.C. He retired in 1985 after thirty-seven years with Imperial Oil Ltd. (Ioco Refinery). His memory will live on for all of us at Kelly Lake, where he spent many happy hours with his extended family. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 1:00 p.m. Thursday, June 11 at St. Peter Apostle Roman Catholic Church, Clinton, B.C. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated. On line condolences may be expressed at
