Fur merchant.

Born at Winnipeg on 8 December 1886, son of Noe Chevrier and Agnes McMullen (?-?), half-brother of Horace Chevrier, he and his brother operated a retail clothing and fur store called The Blue Store founded by their father in 1872. It was later known as Chevrier and Sons. The store closed in 1931 and he went to work for the T. Eaton Company, retiring in 1954. On 1 January 1906, he married Clara Mary Grieve (1887-1952) and they had three sons: Donald Chevrier (?-1907), Douglas Frederick Chevrier (1909-1994), and Stewart Bruce Chevrier (1911-1997). He was a keen dog breeder, at one time being the foremost breeder of English Springer spaniels in North America. He died at Winnipeg on 8 November 1982 and was buried in the Assumption Roman Catholic Cemetery.
