Chevalier: Richard John, a resident of Dresden, passed away at the Windsor Regional Hospital, Ouellette Campus on Sunday, October 20, 2019 after a brief illness at the age of 71. Richard is survived by his wife and best friend of 49 years Carol (Blakeley) Chevalier; his children, Krista, Matthew, and Martin Chevalier and his grandson Mackenzie who was the best gift he had ever received. He will be sadly missed by his sisters and brothers-in-law Connie Martin (Dave), Ann Kirkham (Doug) and many more relatives and friends. Richard was a counsellor and member of the  Wabash Community of Christ. He retired after 31 years at Arvin Meritor, Tilbury (formerly Rockwell), and for the past 18 years he drove bus for Badder Bus Lines.
