Philip Chevallard Obituary

Philip John Chevallard, 85, beloved husband of the late Marilyn Hribar, died Thursday, December 28, 2023. 

Born in Columbus, OH on October 13, 1938, he was the son of the late John and Thelma (nee Hess) Chevallard.

Phil and Marilyn were longtime members of the St. Thomas Moore Newman Center on the Ohio State University campus.

He is survived by his son, Jason Chevallard and wife, Janet; two granddaughters, Annabel Chevallard and Julia Chevallard; two brothers, Mike Chevallard and Joe Chevallard; sister, Linda Chevallard; previous wife, Patricia (nee Rath) Bussard; nephews Joe Dow, Nathan Dow and Chris Chevallard; niece Aymee Chevallard; and special family friends, Connie (nee Rath) and Guy Poliseno, their daughter and granddaughters.

Phil graduated from St. Charles Preparatory High School in 1956 and went on to hold various sales and administrative positions before retiring from the State of Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation.

Phil and Marilyn married later in life after a long friendship. They enjoyed spending time with their beloved dogs; Shih Tzus Haiku, Freddie, Archie and Rosie and the “brain dead” poodle, Frisky. They also enjoyed traveling to many parts of the US, with a particular affinity for the American Southwest.

An avid golfer, Phil and friends would maintain a standing tee time at several central Ohio golf courses. He would also travel to the southeast to play on frequent occasions.

Phil was equally if not more passionate in his support of Ohio State football. You were hard-pressed to find a stronger supporter of the program, even when they had difficult games or seasons. Phil rarely missed watching a game, and he and Marilynwould attend them in-person whenever they got the opportunity.

A long-time member of Alcoholics Anonymous, Phil found great strength in the support he gave and received from that organization, both in the Columbus area and once again after his relocation to Simpsonville.He was rightfully proud of his over fifty years of sobriety, he believed strongly in the mission of AA and was always available tohelp others struggling with addiction to help them on their path to recovery.

Phil’s sharp wit and sarcastic sense of humor endeared him to those he met in short order. He was generous with his time, love and financial support, never hesitating to jump in the car or chip in wherever or however he could. Starting at a young age when he filled in for their father for his siblings to later in life as a parent and grandparent, you could always count on Phil giving what he had, even if it was simply time to listen.
