LARRY JAMES CHEVALLIER
On March 8th, 2013 our lives were changed forever when
Larry James Chevallier
peacefully left us for a quieter place. His hand was held until the end by his beautiful wife of 39 years, Diana. Larry was born in Eckville, Alberta on March 11, 1950 and was raised in Rocky Mountain House until he came to Peachland, BC in 1967 where he spent most of his active and colorful life.
He was active in the Canadian Cutting Horse Association during the 1980’s and early 1990’s as a director, judge,
competitor and champion at many events. Larry was also
a former director, sponsor and long time supporter of High School Rodeo in BC. Larry loved his animals. His dogs were a huge part of his life as well. He usually had two or three dogs with him wherever he went. He had a great
connection with them all.
Larry was predeceased by his dad, Joe Chevallier in
2002 and by his nephew Mark Chevallier in 2012.
He is lovingly survived by his wife and best friend Diana Chevallier of Peachland, BC, his mom Vivian Chevallier of Westbank, BC, his son Shawn Chevallier (Jerri-Lynn) of Beaumont, AB, his daughter in-law Sandy Chevallier (Carl Woods) of Peachland, BC, his granddaughters, Candace, Fallon, Raven, Hunter and Bailey, his brother Don Chevallier (Kim) of Rocky Mountain House, AB, his sister in-law
Connie Volk (Les) of Bowden, AB, his nephew Grant
Chevallier (Elyse) of Rocky Mountain House, AB, his niece Amanda MacKenzie (Travis) of Spruce View, AB, his great nephews Charlie, Alex, Matthew, Cole and Tyrell and his great niece Sierra.
The Chevallier family will be hosting an Open House at the Peachland Riding Club, 5380 Princeton Avenue, Peachland on Saturday March 16th, 2013 at 1pm to remember the good times we have been lucky to share.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to the Peachland High School Rodeo Scholarship Fund would be welcome.
