John "Jack" Chevalier

John “Jack” Chevalier

A Celebration of Life for late Philadelphia Tribune sports editor, copy editor and writer Jack Chevalier will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19 at the Broad Street Bullies Pub at the Xfinity Live! complex.

The event is open to relatives and friends. Many people from around the country have planned to attend the memorial for Chevalier, who was known by his nickname, “Chevy.”

Chevalier, who was 83 when he died on Aug. 24, 2019, worked for many newspapers during his career.

He gave the Philadelphia Flyers their Broad Street Bullies moniker while covering the team in the 1970s for The Evening Bulletin. The Flyers, who intimidated teams with a bruising style, won Stanley Cups in 1974 and 1975.

Chevalier also spent time working for The Philadelphia Inquirer and The Wilmington (Del.) News-Journal.
